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!”
This previous Saturday, January 8th, SFHS’s amazing drill team performed at a competition at Alta High School. Eight 4A schools from all over the state were represented. Despite an injury suffered by one of the girls during the “Dance” portion of the competition, SFHS’s team was able to place high in each category. In the “Kick” the girls placed 3rd, in “Military”, 4th, in “Hip Hop”, 2nd, and in “Dance”, 3rd. In addition, Tailyr Peterson took 5th place in solo. Over all, the top teams were Bountiful 1st place, Maple Mountain 2nd place, and Spanish Fork High School 3rd place.
