On Thursday October 10 the Lady Dons volleyball team played North San Pete hawks, in a breast cancer awareness game. The lady dons wore pink bows in their hair while playing and on their right foot they had a pink shoe lace. The game was started with a dedicatory song for all those that are struggling with breast cancer, have fought the battle of cancer and those that have lost loved ones to breast cancer sung by Bridget Ausiata. Much of the student body came dressed in pink, supporting Breast cancer awareness month. And to cheer on the lady dons as they faced the lady Hawks. The first game was won by the Hawks- 26 to 24, a close match with the Dons leading the whole way but unfortunately choking at the end. They were given a motivational speech by their head coach Andrew Richards, and pulled out a win for the next game winning 25-18. With the energy from the second game they again won the third game with the score of, 25-20. One more game is all they needed and they got the job done. Leading them by eight, 25-17. We are all so proud of our lady dons, good luck at state.

Stage. Set. Shakespeare! On October 7th through the 9th you may have noticed someone (or many) missing in your math class. It was the SFHS Shakespeare Team. Students made the long, exiting, and loud bus ride to Southern Utah University to compete in several events revolving around Shakespeare.  Marty Sperry, 11th grader at SFHS, said of the occasion, "Unity is no small word for this team. We celebrate together, party together, and support each other. Much like a family, we've got each other's backs. A victory for 1 is a victory for ALL!" Jen Grzybowskis and Marty Sperry took 3rd place for their duo scene.  Great job and thank you to all who participated! If you are interested in seeing the competition pieces performed we will be showcasing them Tuesday, October 18 at 7pm in the auditorium. Hope to see you all there. 

 

Windows on the Workplace in Action

John Perotti, therapist, lecturing at Windows in the Workplace

John Perotti, a licensed therapist, visited Spanish Fork High School on Thursday, September 29th. He spoke to students about his job at Renaissance Ranch, a Drug Rehabilitation facility.  As an animated speaker, he enthralled the students with stories of patient's life stories, and helped students understand the difference between use, misuse, abuse, addiction and dependence. "Windows on the Workplace" is an excellent opportunity for  students get a glimpse into different careers by listening to experienced professionals.
