FFA Conducts Service Project and Laser Assault

Kira Fenn

Babies are born daily, but the sad thing about such a wonderful experience is that some babies have to go home with nothing but the clothes on their backs to keep them warm. Spanish Fork FFA, during their FFA week activities, thought about how they could make a difference. On Thursday, February 24, 2010, the FFA did a service project where they made baby blankets to later donate to Payson Hospital.

Character Count Week Celebrated at Spanish Fork High School

Matthew Christiansen

Character count week at Spanish Fork High School was a success! The week began as each of the students received another character card. These cards have been distributed out amongst the school as part of a competition to see who can get them all. They have motivational quotes on them and have been a tradition carried out by the NHS. Besides character cards, the school had plans of having Paul Cardall come and speak to them. The one downer on the very important week was, he came down with a virus and was unable to show up. Fortunately, that didn't slow the students down.
