On Wednesday, December 15,2010, Spanish Fork High School students were able to participate in a talent competition much like the one seen on television;  America’s Got Talent.  It turned out to be a huge success! Friends and family came to support each participant. Spanish Fork students arrived with songs they had written, and dance moves they made themselves.

Window in the Workplace

Recently, Spanish Fork High School was lucky enough to have psychologist Dr. Liebing present at Window in the Workplace.  A room packed with students listened as she told them about her experiences going through school and working as a psychologist.  Dr. Liebing compared being a psychologist to reading a mystery novel, “you are trying to figure out this person,” she said.  Many students found that intriguing.  Though it takes many years of schooling to become a psychologist, the rewards can be awesome. What could be more rewarding than helping someone improve their life?

On Thursday December 2, 2010, the Spanish Fork High School Cross Country team left for California, where they ran the All-West Region Footlocker Race at Mt. San Antonio College. The SFHS Cross Country team shared a charter bus with two other high schools, Salem Hills and Springville. The bus ride was long and arduous; however, it was merely an obstacle in the way of the ultimate goal of racing in the All-West Region Footlocker race. It is a privilege and an honor to compete in the race. Runners from across the country come to participate.

Spanish Fork High School's Production of the Phantom of the Opera was a giant success. The hours spent in labor over this grand project paid off in the end. With a sold out audience on closing night, this play was a smashing hit. Out of four performances three were full houses and the fourth nearly so. The play was presented by only thirteen high-schools in the nation; and even with their work cut out for them, the Spanish Fork Drama Department came through with a standing ovation and a wondrous performance.
