The MMHS Ellevés Drill Team competed at the West Coast Elite Dance Competition held in Long Beach, California on March 24, 2018.  The team competed in the following categories:  Military, Dance, Pom, and Hip Hop. 

The Ellevés placed 1st in Military and were awarded the National Champion Military trophy and jackets. The Ellevés also received a judge’s choice award so they were asked to perform their military routine in the Finals Gala that was held later that evening. Other routine placements were 5th in Pom, 7th in Hip Hop, and 8th in Dance. There were 62 teams competing at the competition, mainly from California, but there were teams from Texas, Florida, and Utah.

While in California, the Ellevés also had the opportunity to take classes at The Edge Performing Arts Studio.  They took a private hip hop class that was very beneficial, motivating, and fun.

Now the team will prepare for their annual showcase which will be held on May 3 in the MMHS auditorium.  The showcase will feature all of the team’s competition routines as well as a few new routines.  The new 2018-19 Ellevés will also perform.  Plan now to attend and see some award-winning routines performed by an amazing team!

Spanish Fork High School has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance.

“SFHS continues to demonstrate true environmental leadership by reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions that are proven to contribute to climate change,” stated Jean Lupinacci, ENERGY STAR Director for Commercial & Industrial Buildings. “Today, 45 percent of U.S. emissions are attributable to commercial and industrial buildings, which is why improving energy efficiency is so critical for our future.”

ENERGY STAR Certified buildings and plants are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the United States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at SFHS and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation. Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.

On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers—all without sacrifices in performance or comfort.

To date, tens of thousands of buildings and plants across all fifty states have earned the ENERGY STAR. For more information about ENERGY STAR for Buildings and Plants, visit www.energystar.gov/buildings

Kindness Week

A new tradition was started at SFJHS this year by the student council. We celebrated the first annual Kindness Week. There has been so much going on in our world lately, and it is scary to think about what kids these days go through as they grow up. The best way to combat these types of events is to show kindness, acceptance, and love to our peers every day. We all have strengths and gifts to share, and that is what Kindness Week is all about.

On Tuesday, students wrote kindness notes and were challenged to walk up to someone, whether they knew that person or not, and give them a note. After pack time, the halls were full of smiling and laughing kids.

Wednesday was all about showing kindness to ourselves. The students created a paper chain which was full of statements about their strengths and amazing talents. It was kind of awkward at first because students didn't want to brag. But once they started, many students ended up doing way more than they were asked to. It was awesome to see kids light up as they realized they are special and unique individuals. The chain was hung up around the outside halls of the school to remind students about how special they really are.

Thursday was Compliment Day and students watched some funny videos about the importance of giving, but also receiving compliments. After that, brave students, and a few teachers, stood in front of white boards while others wrote good things about that person. When students could see what others wrote about them and see how others view them, their faces broke into grins and laughter.

Friday was the day to say thank you to those who may not always get the recognition they deserve. Classes talked about the importance of recognizing people for their hard work and showing our appreciation and gratitude. Each class made posters for the different faculty members in the school to let them know that we are grateful for their hard work every day.

We want to thank the counselors, the student council advisors, and the faculty for teaching the pack time lessons. And of course the students for their participation. Last week really was special, and we hope that a difference was made, even if it was small. One student admitted to their teacher "I just feel so good this week. I can't remember being this happy for a long time." And that's what it is all about.
