On Friday, September 28th, the Spanish Fork High School Hope Squad had the opportunity to attend Spanish Fork Junior High’s 8th grade Health classes to teach valuable lessons on how students’ words and actions can have a profound impact on others. Students were encouraged to offer a smile and a compliment to others, and were given a friendly reminder that you may never know what somebody is going through. They did fun, interactive activities with the students to help promote kindness and thoughtfulness.
The Red Cross Blood Drive will be tomorrow from 8 am to 3 pm in the D Gym at Spanish Fork High School. This is a great way for our us to give back to the community.
