Christmas Sweater and Hat Day

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Thu, 12/22/2016 - 09:44

In celebration of the Christmas season, students were invited to come to school wearing their favorite Christmas sweaters and hats. Some of the students are wearing traditional sweaters and Santa hats while others have taken it as a personal challenge to wear some amazingly ugly and extravagent sweaters. Here at SaJHS we hope that everyone enjoys their Christmas break and we look forward to seeing the students again after the New Year.

F.A.C.S. Exploration with Mrs. Larson!

Mrs. Larson’s 8th grade F.A.C.S. class made these beautiful, wonderful, Christmas towels! We traced the design that we wanted and got the material they thought was cute to us. We cut the traced design and stuck it to the material. Then, we ironed it so that the design was stuck to the fabric, then we cut it out. We pulled off the sticky part and stuck the fabric to our towels. Next, we sewed around the design to make it stay on the towel. It also made it look super cute. Some students put colored glue stuff on it to add more effect to the design.

Scavenger Hunt

Mrs. Van De Graaff's 8th grade history classes went on a scavenger hunt today. "Kids have a lot of energy during the holiday season, so I decided to put that to use by having them run around the school finding lost stories of the Revolution. I decided to do something fun for them as a little Christmas gift so they wouldn't get bored sitting in the classroom all day. They tend to remember experiences that are unusual and it gets them excited about coming to history."
