At SFHS, Biology teacher Layne Shepherd gave his students a special opportunity to learn more about the parts of cells. Students could choose to make an edible model of a cell and label each of the parts. Students Makayla Michelsen and Shaylee Archibald accepted this challenge and together made a model of an animal cell out of chocolate cake, with the parts made out of candy and pumpkin seeds. “It had to be edible and a cake can hold a lot of things,” said Makayla and Shaylee about why they chose to make their model the way they did.

Spanish Fork High School still has spirit! Traces of Halloween roam the hallways. There has been a mass variety of costumes such as Buddy the Elf, Hello Kitty, a dairy cow, and something as simple as a fairy. There was a competition held for the best costumes where people were awarded for funniest, scariest, most original, and best couple costumes. Those students who dressed up were highly favored for their tasteful and appropriate ways of dressing. Not only did the students have spirit, but the teachers did as well.
