Mrs. Carlson and her team of wood shop students have filled the Payson High main gym with wood wonders once again this year. Pieces range from bed stands, dressers and drawers, to nightstands, pool tables, and hope chests.
Many of these projects have been in the works since the beginning of the year and highlight the different skills available within the woodworking trade. Many pieces this year have logos or images etched, burned, or laser printed into the wood.
Come stop by the gym tonight until 8:00 pm to see this amazing showcase.
Senior graduation clearance starts this Thursday, May 17th. Clearance for sophomores and juniors starts Monday, May 21st. Please see the attached PDF for details.
Maple Mountain High School’s STEM Ambassadors club had another successful year. Having the opportunity to meet with students from Sierra Bonita and Mapleton Elementary schools, the STEM ambassadors taught principles of coding to all fifth grade students. This was done by teaching stage two of code.org. While some elementary students struggled, other students made it to stage three. Jared Martin said the following, “Throughout my high school career, this has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken. Most definitely my favorite part about this class has been teaching and connecting with the kids.” Nikelle Barney stated, “Every time I walked into the class the kids would always be so happy to see me and my partner, calling out our names and telling us about how far they’ve gotten.” Thanks to all the fifth grade students and STEM ambassadors for making this another successful year!x

The orchestra students of Spanish Fork Junior High killed it on Thursday, May 10th at the 2018 UVU Orchestra Festival Competition! All seventh, eighth, and ninth graders did an excellent job thanks to their amazing conductor, Angela Harman. Cason Barton from the seventh-grade orchestra says, “I think it was a very good experience performing in front of the judge and that it could help us further along in life.” Indeed it will! Did you know that people who play a musical instrument have better brain development? A ninth grader from the ninth grade orchestra, Hailey Creer, says, “I benefited from this experience because I was able to learn to work in harmony with others. The songs we had the opportunity to play at the UVU festival challenged me and my classmates and we were able to improve and thrive together.”
