The senior class of Spanish Fork High School wants to make a difference in the level of school spirit throughout this year. The class of 2011 wants to make this a fun, supportive, activity filled year that will help the school gain more school pride and bring the school together as a whole. Kaitlin Urmston, the senior class president said, “As a senior, I realize our class is looked up to by the other classes; and as a group, we need to be the example for them.” Shideler Bennett, the Student Body President said, “Our class has gone through three school splits since freshman year, and this is our time to show the school and the city of Spanish Fork what we can do to truly be Rock Solid.” The seniors are looking forward to a great way to end their high school career.

Spanish Fork High School students, staff, and construction workers all worked hard during the summer to continue the Rock Solid tradition from last year. The Staff contributed by pre-planning after school study programs and goals for the new year, as well as extra-curricular activities for the school. Along with the new year, SFHS has a brand new remodeled gym, a new walkway to the entrance, and other new additions that are helping to improve the school. The students have contributed by helping the teachers set-up classrooms, cleaning the school as well as transferring materials into different rooms, and supporting each other’s teams. The support was shown through posters and banners made for the high school’s team; popsicles were taken to some of the summer teams practicing in the hot sun, and the first few football games have been attended by many students. Along with attendance to the football games, a new addition has been added. All students were given a black t-shirt with the words “Rock Solid” written on the back. We expect nothing less than the best from the students at our school. Rock Solid!

Welcome back to the new and improved Spanish Fork High School. Students were welcomed back this year by a newly remodeled building! This summer many changes were made throughout the school including a new gym, band room, choir and drama departments, and science labs.
The gym was gutted, repainted, and had a new air conditioning system put in. It also had the big windows and ceiling replaced.
The Fine Arts Department had the most changes this year. The choir room and the band room had everything taken out, including the ceiling, the cupboards, and even the carpeting. The contractors redid the structure of the rooms by knocking out the back hall between the band room and the choir room and putting in new practice rooms and offices. The two rooms also have a built in recording system and a new sound system. The dressing rooms in the drama department were redone by adding new counters, a new sink, mirrors and theater lights.
The school as a whole had new ceilings put in and new lighting. The front of the school also received a cover and tables so the students could go outside and eat at lunch.
The improvements have really changed the attitude toward the school; where students weren’t happy before, they now, more than ever, are proud to be Dons.
