Students at Spanish Fork High School are preparing for some of the hardest tests they've taken yet. Many students throughout the course of the year taken Advanced Placement courses, and have learned a lot; they're now learning to mesh everything together to pass the test with flying colors. AP tests are graded on a scale of one to five, five being the best you can get. If students receive a three or higher they pass and will receive many college credits for very cheap. Students are using every opportunity, free time, and homework time they have to study up using various methods.
Dons Baseball Keeps Rolling by Payton Loreen The Spanish Fork Dons Baseball program has accomplished a lot over the past month. They started off by travelling down to St. George to participate in the Dixie Sunshine Tournament. After winning another consecutive tournament, they traveled back to Spanish Fork for a week of rest before travelling down to Scottsdale, Arizona. Here they would play in the Big League Dugout National Invitational, one of the most prestigious national tournaments in the nation.
Hitting three home-runs and having eleven RBIs by herself. It was a fantastic game for Kylee Wolf. She didn’t really expect it happening. The first home run Wolf hit, she thought it was just a line drive and wasn’t going over. Little did she know it was a shot over the fence. She was rounding first base and realized that it was over and then she started jogging around the bases. Wolf’s second and third home runs were high but long pop ups, and they went over the fence. She said it was “luck.” We all know she can do this all the time if she wanted, and it wasn’t just luck.

The All – State Art Show, held at the Springville Art Museum, is a show dedicated to displaying the artwork of high school students all across the state of Utah. The All – State Art Show is a difficult show to enter. Each school is allowed a minimum amount of students’ artwork and each student participants’ pieces are not guaranteed a spot in the show. A panel of judges critiques the submitted artwork and decides what will be accepted into the show. One of our very own made it into the show.
