A new semester means new classes and new schedules for the students at Spanish Fork High School, but this semester they’re adding a new dimension; SFHS is adding a two-a-week period called intervention. This period will be about 30 minutes long and allow students to study, do homework or do make-up in a class. Some teachers are even allowing students to participate in class activities such as painting, drawing, or sports.
On Wednesday, January 12, Spanish Fork High School Student Council found themselves busy preparing for a lunchtime activity in the Commons. While the Senior Council boiled gallons of water, the Student Body Officers found tons of paper and scissors to make snowflakes, and the Junior Council brought fun games to play. As soon as the bell rang, students from all over the school began flocking to the main building. Everyone knows nothing is better on a cold day than a delicious cup of cocoa.
The annual Parents Night on Tuesday, January 11th at SFHS was a success. All dance classes including Social Dance, Dance 1, Dance 2, Dance 3, Dance/Drill class, and Dance Company performed a few numbers they have learned throughout the semester. Chelsey Davis and Leeza Stephens (Sterling Scholars) also performed their solos that night. All of the parents of the dancers were invited to come and watch for free, and what a swell turn out there was! Dance styles performed that night were the waltz, the cha-cha, the country swing, hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, and modern.
Spanish Fork High School would like to send a huge shout out to their fabulous custodians and all their hard work. Especially this time of year, in this cold weather, they are out making the side walks clear and safe. With majority of the school being outside, it takes a lot of work to make the school a safe environment. No one will never catch them doing anything other than very productive work. They are always putting their best foot forward. Along with their ability to work hard, they are all very friendly and supportive to the students.
Last weekend, our Spanish Fork High School song leaders placed first in their regional competition. The song leaders are a portion of girls from the Cheer squad who combine dancing with cheering. They danced a great routine which paid off in the end when the girls took home a first place plaque.
Hattie Nielsen, one of our SF song leaders said this about their performance, “We learned this dance a month ago which is pretty last minute, but we all worked really hard. And with lots of extra practices (even over Christmas break), and hard work, we were able to pull it off!”
