Green Man Group from UVU performed an awesome assembly for the students at Larsen.  They are a percussion band made of students from the university.  Drummer Clint was inspired by a teacher to play drums because of a nervous habit he had.  Clint would always tap his hands on his desk or his feet on the floor.  This teacher saw a talent in him that no one else had and gave him a pair of drumsticks.  Clint brought a few of his green friends with him and they all played drums and danced for us.  The students LOVED it.  Thanks Green Man Group of the fun assembly

The class of 2015 has a lot to think about when choosing where to go to school next year, but after this year's annual College Day, they have a lot more information to help them. Representatives from colleges and universities from around the state of Utah were at Spanish Fork High School on Wednesday, October 1 to meet with seniors and provide them with information about their schools. 

"It is a great opportunity for our seniors to get a wealth of information on colleges without leaving our campus," said Dawn Draper, counselor at SFHS.

The event started with a general assembly for all seniors. Then they each chose three breakout sessions to attend with the colleges they were most interested in. 

"The best part is seeing students get excited about college and excited about the opportunity to go to college.  They also have a contact person at each school that they feel they can speak to after meeting with the reps." said Draper.

Seniors applying for college and scholarships should keep in mind deadlines. December 1 is the scholarship deadline for BYU, USU, and UofU. Other deadlines vary from March to May.

Green Man Assembly

Red Ribbon Week:

Green Day

Students had the “Time of Their Life” at the Green Man assembly in connection to Green Day for Red Ribbon Week.  Clint Pulver from Utah Valley University entertained a sea of green Park Panthers with a Drug Free message that will stick with students tighter than a Green Man suit.

Clint shared a story when he was ten years old he couldn’t stop tapping his hands and feet in class.  This got Clint in trouble many times and even a few visits to the principal’s office.  Clint never understood why he was in trouble because the tapping was just a part of him and what he did. 

One day, his teacher asked him to stay after school and Clint thought for sure he was in trouble again.  To his surprise, Clint’s teacher asked him if he had ever thought about playing the drums.  Clint thought to himself: “I can’t even spell drums!”  Clint was surprised one day when his teacher bought him some drum sticks and told him to never stop tapping.  His teacher knew he had a gift and he should never stop playing the drums.

Clint shared a similar message to students telling them that people around them really care about them.  He told students they need to see their potential.  To never give up and keep doing what you like.  He also shared that we should complement our friends and classmates more and not bully.  He taught them a catchy song he made up called the “Good Job” song. 

Good job!  Good Job! 

Good Job! Good Job!

G double O- D-J-O-B

Good Job! Good Job!

He also taught students can’t do drugs and be like the Green Man Group.  Students were then entertained by a rocking drum performance by Clint and the Green Man Group.  Students screamed and danced as they enjoyed the message and music from Clint and the Utah Valley Green Men.

We appreciate Esther Wirfs from the PTA for arranging the awesome assembly to remind students to be drug free and for dressing Mr. Kay up.

 The rest of the activities for the week are:

Wednesday- Mustaches

Thursday- Bright Neon Colors

Friday- Crazy Socks and Shoes

People make art with what they can find.  Art is made of material.  Art can have digital elements.  “The great thing about art is you can’t be wrong!”  Modern art is being created right now.  Art is whatever you make of it.  An artist that like to surf uses the resin he uses on his surfboard for his art.  Collage art takes many materials and puts them together to make one piece of art.  We created collage art today!
