This month, students in grades 1-6 have been learning about college and careers from Mrs. Lewis, the School Counselor. They learned about how important college is, and that it's never too early to start planning for college!

Last week Canyon had its first annual College Week, where students and teachers dressed up in their college gear and students did a mascot trivia game, where winners got some fun college shirts and other fun college things!  Student Council also gave everyone fun facts about colleges every morning. (Did you know that Mrs. Perkins was her school's mascot in college?)

Ask your child what they learned, and what college THEY are going to!

Brockbank has a character education program where each month, a different group of teachers and staff act out a common scenario that could happen any day at school. "Marva and Jessie" (a.k.a. Mrs. Terri Jensen, school counselor and Mrs. Kristel Peterson, sixth-grade teacher) are "students" at Brockbank who have different experiences each month that they share with the students. This year's topics were Friendship, Patriotism, Conflict Resolution, Hard Work, and most recently Self Confidence. Students love watching their teachers, janitor, principal, and other staff members act out the parts of the program!

Brockbank Staff Spotlight!

Brockbank Elementary News - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 11:21pm

Brockbank is happy to spotlight Mrs. Wendy Dimond.

Mrs. Wendy Dimond  teaches transitional kindergarten. She and her husband live in Payson and one son and one daughter. Wendy likes reading, doing cross stitch, crocheting, handy work, traveling, politics, and cleaning. Some of her favorites are the color blue, licorice (any flavor), coke zero, the movie, "Maleficient" (which happens to be the last movie she saw), mystery books written by John Grisham, Mary Higgins Clark, and Dan Brown, the song, "Cinderella" song by Steve Chapman (says it reminds her of her husband and daughter), and eating at Mi Rancherito in Payson. Her favorite vacation destination is Hawaii. Something Wendy said not everyone knows about her is that she is a political junkie! Before coming to Brockbank, Wendy was an ESL tech for 9 years at Wilson and Spring Lake, subbed for 2 months at Taylor, and taught one year at Park. We are so glad Wendy came to Brockbank! She is a great addition to our staff!

Made it by a Hair

Park Elementary News - Tue, 03/31/2015 - 4:01pm

Last month, Park students were challenged to read 180,600 minutes during the month of March in connection to the Champions Challenge Rodeo.  

Our little Panthers made it by a hair with 181,000 total minutes read.  As part of the challenge, Mr. Kay, Mr. Gull, Mr. Talbot, Mr. Glenn, and Mr. Hales agreed to let students shave their heads or beard.  Needless to say, we have a few bald teachers walking the halls of Park School.

Seven lucky students also won tickets to the Champions Challenge Rodeo next month, two students won a pair of Justin Boots.

We encourage students to continue reading and hopefully that reading can have a reverse affect and the hair of these men will grow back.

The team won 23 out of 25 matches in a two day tournament. Congratulations on a GREAT win!

Spanish Fork High School cheerleaders came home from California with a 3rd place finish in their national competition. 

"We competed on Saturday and then the top 35% competed again on Sunday in the finals," said junior cheerleader Kourtney Beus.

Between the rounds of competition, a Spanish Fork cheerleader suffered an injury, but the team worked together to make adjustments that still allowed them to meet their goals for the competition.

"We reworked our routine on Sunday morning and had just enough time to get ready for the competition," said Beus.

"This makes all of the hardwork for the whole year worth it," said junior Makayla Olsen.

The songleaders took 8th in their competition.

Congratulations, SF Cheer!
