It may have been a week late, but nothing stopped Spanish Fork High School from enjoying the Homecoming fiesta. Students gathered at the pavilion west of the main gym on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. The fiesta had originally been scheduled for Wednesday, September 11, 2013, but the event was postponed due to rainy weather.

Around 200 students turned out for food, drinks, and volleyball. The swimming pool was also open for the event. Students said it was a great time to meet up with friends, talk to girls and guys, and socialize with new people.

Spanish Fork High School Marching Band performed at Provo High School on September 14, 2013. It was a chance for all of the different marching bands in the area to get feedback on their competition show from other people instead of just their coaches.

"It was a lot less stressful on Saturday because  we had already performed it once before," said Seryn Martin, color guard member.

The band's show is made up of music from Phantom of the Opera. They first performed their show at halftime of the Homecoming football game on Friday, September 13, 2013.

Fair Fun Friday

Animals, gardens, clowns, a 13 foot alligator, a mechanical bull named T-bone. This is what the FFA experienced on September 13, 2013 at the Utah State Fair.

The Ag teachers wanted to get students involved, so they arranged the trip for the FFA. They planned an assignment that took students on a tour around the fair.

Students spent about three and a half hours at the fair, learning and enjoying the sun.

"Everyone should experience the state fair," said Gavin Wilkey, FFA member.
