Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 11/23/2010 - 08:10

November 16, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. Spanish Fork High School’s Dance Company presented “Going Solo.”  All of the girls on the dance company either did a solo, duo, or trio.  Some of the dances were the own girl’s choreography, and some were choreographed by another person.  This was the first time the school has done this, but we hope to make this an annual concert.  It was a good way to raise a little money, and to also prepare us all for the busy performing season that is coming up.

Ballroom Club Takes Floor

The ballroom club had their first meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 16th. Students didn’t take the time to talk or do future planning. They just danced the waltz, cha cha, and little bit of country swing. There were about six boys and eight girls. Lucky for the boys, they got to dance with every girl. Since all of them had already had some ballroom background, it made the dancing more exciting. Annie Morris said, “It was fun to get to know the people in the club and dance for the first time with the club.” Everyone is hoping for more meetings like this one in the future.

5,4,3,2,1, Blast off! Ever wanted to build a rocket? Well in Mr. Bronson's Physics with Technology class, they do just that! For the past two weeks students have been making and launching bottle rockets, experimenting to figure out how to create the perfect rocket for maximum distance. When asked why he has the students do this exercise, Mr. Bronson responded with four reasons. First, it's a Physics with Technology class, which is a CTE course, and it emphasizes hands on learning. Second, the classes just learned about projectile motion, and now they can experience the real life application.

Spanish Fork High School honored the heroes of our country on Veteran’s Day with an inspirational assembly. It started off with a patriotic line-up of our Country’s flag to lead the student body into the auditorium, and then SFHS’s Choir sang the National Anthem. It continued with Spanish Fork’s own Combat Engineer veteran, Lucas Isley. Mr. Isley’s thoughts as he prepared for the assembly were that he wanted to speak about more than just what he did as a soldier.
