Youth Court is a program in Spanish Fork where first time offenders of small crimes can go and find ways to make up their debt to society. When kids 14 to 18 commit a crime like stealing, vandalism, and other small offenses, they can attend Youth Court and work with the kids involved in the program to get their crime erased from their record. “Kids can do stuff like write essays, clean up the mess they made, do community service, and other simple things that help them realize what they did wrong,” says Karianne Nelson, who is in the group of students that help find solutions.

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.
