Counselors attend SUU "Counselor Days"

Spanish Fork High School News - Wed, 09/20/2017 - 12:20pm

This past weekend our counselors attended a conference down at Southern Utah University. They were able to learn about  the great amenities that SUU offers their students. One thing that was especially impressive, were the extreme measures SUU is taking to accommodate incoming Freshman. SUU holds new student orientations, and even assigns each student an "ACE" which is an "Assistant Coach for Excellence and Success." An ACE is essentially a peer mentor to help students in the big transition from High School to College. If you are interested in going to SUU, come see the counselors and ask about attending a "Red Riot," which is an overnight student life experience. The Counselors were also able to tour SUU's renowned Aviation Program. If you are considering a career as a fixed wing or helicopter pilot, SUU has a great program that the counselors would love to tell you more about!  An SUU representative will be attending our "College Day" on September 26th, and SUU will also be waiving their $50 Application Fee during our "College Week" which is November 6th-November 10th. GO THUNDERBIRDS!

What We're Learning: Biology

Landmark High School News - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 5:28pm

This week in Matt Cope's Biology class, students participated in a Concept Attainment activity. Concept Attainment is an inquiry learning strategy where students investigate the attributes of a group or category by comparing and contrasting samples.  

Cope's lesson activity asked students to identify the traits and properties of macromolecules. This strategy helps students make connections between what they already know and what they will be learning AND how to sort relevant information.

We had a blast last night jamming to music by local star Ashley Garbe Smith and her amazing band!  Families came and enjoyed hotdogs, popcorn and mingling with each other.  Mr. Gull started the night out by sharing our new Positive Behavior Intervention Plan with parents.  He explained what SOAR stands for, Serve and Support, Own Your Actions and Words, and Respect.   Mrs. Darrington then explained what Title One means and how we use our Title One allocation funds.  The PTA shared with us the benefits of PTA and encouraged parents to get involved with the different PTA activities.  The weather was beautiful, the support was amazing and the night was one to be remembered.

Fifth Grade Students Enjoy Learning About Science

Fifth grade students in Miss Sabrina Huyett's class recently got to do a science experiment with Miss Huyett's dad, Mr. Steve Huyett. He is a chemist and he taught the students the scientific method of using the "methylene blue" experiment. 

 The blue bottle experiment as it is called, is a chemical reaction. An aqueous solution containing glucose, sodium hydroxide, methylene blue and some air is shaken in a closed bottle; it turns from colorless to blue and then decolorizes again after a while. With further shaking, the cycle can be repeated many times. The students really enjoyed learning about science!

Kindergarters were so excited for their first field trip of the year.  They got to ride on a bus for the first time too and visited Canyon View Park. The classes had many fun activities planned while they were there.  They found leaves and did leaf rubbings, found rocks and wrote their names on them,  did water experiments and of course got to play on the playground.  Thank you Mrs. Eckhardt, Mrs. Murphy and and all the other helpers that made this day so fun!
