On April 9th, the Salem Hills High School JV team had a heated soccer game against Orem High School. They were tied during halftime at 0-0, and both teams were not going to let each other score. Our SkyHawks were fighting hard, when Orem slipped in a goal at the end of second half. Salem kept pushing hard and giving their all until the end of the game. The final score was 0-1. The JV soccer team members from our school are Zac Baker, Clayton Van Fleet, Isaac Lee, Ethan Simmons, Caleb Sly, and Trevyn Zobell.
Many great students worked extremely hard to be on 2013-2014 Salem Junior High's student council. All of them wrote an essay and got a recommendation from a teacher of their choice, had an interview, and last they created two fun posters to hang up. Congrats to all who worked and got their name on the ballot. The school then voted on their choice of representatives. Monday, April 8th, the results were in.
9th grade representatives:

The third term Spartan Target reflection has finished. For most classes there was a good turn out. There was great attendance and performance among the students and their parents. Most students came prepared to present their folders skillfully and professionally. In the case that you were not able to present your packet to a parent, you will need to either complete it during or after school. When you go to make it up you will need to go and get the folder from your sixth period teacher, and then you can choose to do it before school or after.

On Thursday, March 29 a crowd of choir students excitedly traveled over to the Salem High school for a high level singing competition. This year the Chamber Singers Festival would be judged by Mr. Bills; the SHHS choir director. Originally only the Chamber singers themselves were supposed to go, but because Women's Chorus was so advanced they came as well. Once we arrived we sat in the high school auditorium to watch other choirs preform. Jr. High's from all over the district came to show off their best choirs. The Salem Jr. Women's Chorus was third to perform.

On Monday March 18, 2013 the classes watched a motivational movie by a man name Nick Vujicic. He has no arms or legs, just a little foot with two toes on his left side. He talked about not giving up in life. And how we all need to keep moving forward. He told us how he got though is trials and hardships in his life. He said that his religion was a big part in his success in life. He taught us that no matter what there is hope in the world.

To start off the new term we have a new schedule. Instead of the usual 25 minute olympic time during 7th period Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, we now have 43 minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The teachers felt the need for a change because there just wasn’t enough time in the single period to re teach lessons to those who needed them. Instead of having all the free time we now have an academic based advisory period. This way there is more intervention for those that are struggling with their grades.

On Tuesday, March 12 we had sixth graders come to tour the school. They seemed excited as I saw them exit the buses. They had a tour of the school and the orientation in the auditorium. Theyalso got to see some performances from the choir, band, and others. They even got to practice opening lockers. One sixth grader said, “I’m really excited for Jr. High. It seems so cool. I’m so nervous and excited at the same time. I can’t wait.” I had a question and answer session with a future sixth grader. He wanted to know more about classes, schedules, teachers and more.
