New 4H Club: Board games, Fridays after school

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Fri, 04/28/2017 - 10:37

There is a new 4H club happening here at SaJHS. The club will be playing board games every Friday after school, and since it won't be the full 10 weeks that a 4H club usually lasts, there is no fee to sign up. Inspired by the 4H club, Andrew Oblad decided to rank his top 10 all-time favorite board games and card games.

In celebration of the new 4-H board game club announced this week, I have decided to make a list of the 10 best board games. Card games are included. Enjoy!

Ms James's class had EMT's visit her class today. The students learned about choking and basic first aid. This is the beginning of a CPR certification course that Ms. James will be doing with her students. Ms. James always has great opportunities for her students to learn fun and interesting lessons that are very relevant to students' lives.

The concert band and advanced percussion traveled to Snow College today to perform for 2 judges and receive a clinic from Dr. Vance Larsen. Students were also able to watch a moving performance by the Snow College Wind Symphony as they were conducted by the guest clinicians, Wayne Erickson, Dr. Gary Gilroy, and Dr. Vance Larsen. The Snow College director of bands, Dr. David Fullmer, gave us his applause and praised our progress from our district performance to this festival performance.
