SaJHS Time Capsule

Submitted by jolynn.ford on Mon, 06/03/2013 - 10:54

On the last day of school, May 24, we placed a time capsule in the front of the school. The Student Council did a fantastic job organizing this activity. They placed various items in the time capsule including a yearbook that many students signed, the ribbon from the Ribbon Cutting ceremony, and other items from our first year. The time capsule will be opened in 25 years!! Hopefully, many of the students will be able to return to see the opening!

For more than one year the teachers of the band/orchestra, choir and drama departments of Salem Jr High School and Mount Nebo Jr HIgh School have been working on preparing for this night.  They have worked so hard to be ready for these two nights. With Rachel  Brooksby,  Jana Lee Stubbs, Laura Turner, Rock White, and Kaitlin Brady putting the whole thing together.  There were over 500 students participating each performance night.  Also there were a total of 25 songs that most of the students had to memorize.  Monday May 20, 2013 was Mt.

Lagoon Day!

Submitted by jolynn.ford on Wed, 05/29/2013 - 11:10

May 17th our school had the opportunity to go to Lagoon. Our school had to take eleven charter buses just so we could get there. We loaded the buses around eight and got to Lagoon around ten. Everyone unloaded the buses and ran for the park entrance, eager to ride all of the rides. We all got through the gates and ran to try to be the first ones in line. While there, Wicked was the most popular. Everybody ran to that ride first since the line seemed to be the longest. After everybody enjoyed the rides we all sat down to grab a bite to eat.

On May twenty-first, the tennis teams went to the High School’s tennis courts for a delicious barbeque and tennis games! There was a good turnout, lots of varsity and junior varsity players were there, with a good amount of intramural players. First, Coach Kellis welcomed everyone then dismissed everyone to go get their choice of steak, chips, and yummy dessert. After everyone got settled, Coach Kellis gave out awards to player who really shined this year.

Thanksgiving Point Field Trip with Mrs. Miya

Submitted by jolynn.ford on Wed, 05/29/2013 - 10:56

On Monday, May, 20th three of Mrs. Miya’s eighth grade classes had the opportunity to go to Thanksgiving Point’s “Museum of Ancient Life.” The opportunity was made available thanks to funding from The Target Corporation which provides grants for out of the classroom learning. Mrs. Miya applied for the grant in the Fall, and recently was awarded the grant. The original plan was to go to The Kennecott Copper Mine, but after the massive landslide there, Mrs. Miya had to come up with someplace different.
