Spanish Fork FFA gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees held in Sandy Utah. This year our chapter did a tree in memory of Levi Sampson who lost his life in an auto-pedestrian accident this summer. Students donated over 40 pairs of jeans to help with the decorations of the tree. In addition over 40 FFA members spent time making ornaments. There was an activity and classes that helped to put everything together. We would like to thank all of those who made the tree a success.
The officers delivered the tree Monday, November 29 to the South Towne Expo Center. All the donated trees were auctioned off with all the proceeds going to the Primary Children's Medical Center. This year SFHS FFA's tree was purchased by an Anonymous sponsor for $1050. It has been great to remember Levi and his spunky attitude. He always wanted everyone to do better and help someone each day. We encourage everyone to find something good that they can do each day. Do Good and Live for Levi.
Our SFHS Singers performed at the American Choral Directors Association Conference on Saturday. SFHS Singers was invited last year after a committee of choral educators from around the state of Utah listened to our state festival recordings. Choral educators from around the state of Utah were in attendance and we were thanked with a standing ovation from the audience! Congrats SFHS Singers and great job representing the Dons.
On November 1st, Seniors from both Spanish Fork High School and Maple Mountain High School had the opportunity to go on "College Tours." Seniors could choose to attend BYU/UVU, Utah State University, Snow College, University of Utah, MTECH Campuses, or USU Eastern. Representatives of the Colleges were there to greet the students, give them a personalized tour, and provide the students with information about their respective colleges. It was a great opportunity for students to visit a college campus and learn more about their post-secondary education options. Thank you to Kelly Seale, our Career Service Coordinator, for all her hard work and preparation in lining up the tours.
Spanish Fork FFA finished a great year with the school garden program. This was our second year selling produce at the Spanish Fork Farmers Market. In total 7 students worked throughout the summer in the garden here at the school, taking care of the plants, harvesting, and selling produce. This year we grew 250 tomato plants, 75 pepper plants, 30 melon plants, and various squash plants. Our harvest was great this year, in total we harvested over 3,150 pounds of tomatoes, 50 melons, and countless squash and peppers! In total the garden sold nearly $2000 of produce at the Spanish Fork Farmers Market! Students were also able to bring produce from their home gardens, and sold over $500 of produce grown at their homes. Students learned many skills from plant care, disease and pest control, and marketing.
This is a reminder that we have changed our NC/NG policy this year. In order to graduate from SFHS, each student will need 32 academic credits and 32 citizenship credits.
At the end of the term, we will no longer put an NG over an academic grade for attendance issues. We will, however, keep the NC in the Citizenship column and students will still need to serve detention and pay for the citizenship recovery as they have in the past.
