On November 1st, Seniors from both Spanish Fork High School and Maple Mountain High School had the opportunity to go on "College Tours." Seniors could choose to attend BYU/UVU, Utah State University, Snow College, University of Utah, MTECH Campuses, or USU Eastern. Representatives of the Colleges were there to greet the students, give them a personalized tour, and provide the students with information about their respective colleges. It was a great opportunity for students to visit a college campus and learn more about their post-secondary education options.
Spanish Fork FFA finished a great year with the school garden program. This was our second year selling produce at the Spanish Fork Farmers Market. In total 7 students worked throughout the summer in the garden here at the school, taking care of the plants, harvesting, and selling produce. This year we grew 250 tomato plants, 75 pepper plants, 30 melon plants, and various squash plants. Our harvest was great this year, in total we harvested over 3,150 pounds of tomatoes, 50 melons, and countless squash and peppers!
This is a reminder that we have changed our NC/NG policy this year. In order to graduate from SFHS, each student will need 32 academic credits and 32 citizenship credits.
At the end of the term, we will no longer put an NG over an academic grade for attendance issues. We will, however, keep the NC in the Citizenship column and students will still need to serve detention and pay for the citizenship recovery as they have in the past.
