Students of the Month for March

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Thu, 03/09/2017 - 14:28
Here are the students of the month for March. Make sure that you congratulate them if you see them. These students have stood out among their peers as being great examples of what it means to be Spartan Strong. Teachers choose these students for a variety of reasons: leadership, impressive growth, hard work, great attitude, kindness to their peers. Whatever the reasons, these kids are great examples of how awesome our student body is. 7th: Chloe Peterson, Brayden Johnson 8th: Talon Seybold, Jordan Hartvigsen 9th: Anissa Edman, Zachary Hunter

All the choir students have been working hard in class, and outside of class to get their songs ready! The choir has usually only one concert a term, but this term some of the choirs have more than one performance!  There are 5 wonderful choirs at our school, Chamber, Women’s Choirs (both are auditioned choirs,) Concert Choir, and last but not least Chorus One Men’s Chorus, and Women’s Chorus.

Students show us their genius in this year's talent show

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Tue, 03/07/2017 - 08:33

March 6 might have been a short day here at SaJHS, but it had big moments during our annual talent show. I think that the talen show sponsored by our student counsel is probably my favorite assembly we do here at SaJHS. So many of our students have amazing skills that they don't always get the chance to share here at school. How often do we let kids pogo-stick around the halls between classes for example? The talent show is one day where students can show us their genius and show off in front of their peers. Let me say that these students do not disappoint. 

Discovering DNA

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Fri, 03/03/2017 - 11:06

Students in biology class have been learning about genetics and DNA recently. In order to help her students understand the concepts like the double helix structure and base pairing, Mrs. Roberts has them building model DNA. They can choose the sequence, but the model is structured so that the chemicals can only be paired correctly. This is a great hands-on learning activity and just one example of the awesome things being done at our school on a regular basis.
