Parent teacher conferences came abruptly this term--being the shortest term of the school year. At this event, Latinos In Action hosted their very first fundraiser; selling delicious Krispy Kreme doughnuts and hot chocolate. They also provided a fantastic day care for parents while they conferenced with teachers. The funds are going toward supplies for Brockbank Elementary. Every other day LIA walks down to Brockbank and tutors kids in reading.
The Lady Dons Basketball hosted the Uintah Utes on Tuesday November 22 for their first win of the year. They were ready to begin the season with a win to prove that they have it in them to have a great season. Senior Kelli Hales and Junior Alyssa Brown both had a successful game with 10 points each.
As evidenced by the sea of blue Future Farmers of America jackets, this year’s 84th national FFA convention held in Indianapolis, Indiana was one of the largest gathering of High School students in the country. Charlie Warren, Cheyeanne Jensen, Swasey Bliss, Casey Warren, and Wyatt Peay had the honor of being there while representing Spanish Fork High school.
Last week our school celebrated red ribbon week, a week to celebrate and spread awareness about being drug free. The National Honors Society sponsored the events throughout the week. On the first day of red ribbon week, the NHS passed out red wrist bands that said, "I pledge to be, DRUG FREE!" Students were challenged to wear these all week to help promote drug awareness. Red streamers, red balloons, red ribbons, and red ties could be found in the commons, on all the door handles of the school, on cars in the parking lot, etc.
