On the morning of October 12th, the Kiwanis Key Club (service club) at Spanish Fork High School teamed up with Adopt-A-Highway Kiwanis Club and gathered at the IFA Store to pick up garbage along the road from there to the freeway exit in front of the Revere Health Center. The service project was a huge success; with almost 50 students arriving with gloves on their hands, and construction vests on their chests, the sides of the roads were cleaned, and then students gathered at the Revere Health Center for well deserved doughnuts and drinks. Key Club members will do this again in the Spring to help keep Spanish Fork clean! #sfhsrocksolid #spanishforkhighschool #foreveradon #DiscoverPowerWithin #NeboHero #NeboSchoolDistrict #StudentSuccess #EmpowerStudents #EngageStudents #FocusOnStudents #LoveUTpublicSchools #UtPol #UtEd #ThankATeacher #LoveTeaching
Teacher of the Week #8 is one of our FACS teachers and Football Coach Josh Jensen. He has been nominated because, “Mr. J Jensen because he is always so kind and really chill with people who play sports! He always wants you to succeed and gives you every tool you need to get there. He truly cares about how we are doing in our lives away from school and will always be ready to talk to you if you need it. I think he deserves an award for all the hard work he does. Teaching classes and coaching football must not be easy, but somehow he makes it all work.” Thank you Coach Jensen for all you do to make SFHS such an amazing place!

Congratulations to Axuray Talbot, Mclain Gordon, and Baylie Sanderson for making the 5A Drill All-State Team. They competed Monday at Taylorsville high school.

After learning an across the floor and a dance combination, only 21 of 54 girls are selected to be on the All-State team.

Our Business and Marketing classes at SFHS strive to give students hands-on experience, real-world application, and valuable skills they can use in order to become successful in a job/career right out of high school. In Mrs. Ford’s Business Office Specialist class, students have the unique opportunity to become Microsoft Office Specialists by taking the industry-recognized MOS exams for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Access. These certifications give students a professional edge by providing globally-recognized industry-endorsed evidence of skills mastery. Students who earn these certifications will possess a career building block that will get them hired faster, and give them high-growth, advancement, and salary opportunities right out of high school!

Spanish Fork High School students have had a great time participating in Utah College Application Week. The Latinos in Action partnered with the counselors to promote UCAW and make it a school-wide event. Students participated in a College Scavenger Hunt where students were able to find different QR codes that were hung around the school to find information about different Utah colleges. Students that participated were the recipients of candy and college swag. On Tuesday, students were encouraged to dress in college apparel and also participated in lunchtime activities. Students were able to eat at food trucks, spin a wheel for college swag, play spike ball and Tug-o-war. Wednesday, many students participated in College Tours. Students had the opportunity to visit either Utah State, Snow College, University of Utah, BYU or UVU. Students were able to tour the campus of their selected school and learn more about their application process and the programs available at those schools. Thursday and Friday, Senior students were able to fill out college applications during their English classes. We had representatives from the UofU, BYU, SUU, USU, UVU, and Snow to assist students in filling out their college applications. Dixie, SUU, and Snow College all waived their application fees so that students could apply for those colleges for free. We had a lot of students complete their applications this week which will assure they meet all scholarship and admission deadlines. We have loved celebrating UCAW this week and getting kids excited for their next step after high school!
