Several of our students here at Spanish Fork Jr. High including Sam Jex, Michael Wyss, Mick Barber, Boston Bradford, and Dexter Bradford all had the opportunity to participate on the high school golf team this year.

 The season began about a month before school even started and finished in early October. The team practiced every day. There were 12 kids on the team.  Every week the qualifiers determined who would play varsity and who would play JV in the upcoming match or tournament.

 About his experience playing on the high school team Sam Jex said, “The high school team this year was AWESOME!  We had an awesome team full of awesome kids.  We all knew that in order to be a good team, we had to work hard.  We also have the best golf coach in the state.  Coach Rogers is one of a kind.  I don't think any of us could imagine how our team would be without him.  And he's got good taste in music.”

 Sam has been playing for about 2 ½ years now. He also plays in the off-season, practicing as much as possible, including using a golf simulator in his friend’s garage during the winter. His goal next year is to shoot in the 70s all year. By his senior year, he hopes to win a state championship, get a scholarship, and be the best player in the state. 

 Congratulations to all these young men for this fantastic accomplishment.

One Team, One Dream

The SFHS Girls Soccer Team roster this year included several girls from Spanish Fork Jr. High including Tracee Jones, Kayla Clark, Lily Ricks, Lavinia Naulu, Emma Runolfsen, Bayleigh Redd, Lindsey Blake, Sydney Berger, Maddie Haugen, and Brinley Maughan.

 “My girls have been just magnificent all season,” said head coach Shane Ferrin. “They’ve fought hard; they’ve come together as a team and done some neat things.” (Herald Extra)

 Maddie Haugen was a little afraid to try out as a freshman “because I was not sure if they would like me, but the other girls were extremely nice and always helped everyone to get better. It was as if there were no age gap at all between us because of how well we would treat each other. I think this helped us to get far and improve a lot as well as become widely recognized and supported. It is so much fun.”

 Lindsey Blake said, “I played with some amazing girls over the season and was taught by some of the best coaches in the state. I feel very fortunate to represent Spanish Fork Soccer. As a soccer team at Spanish Fork High School, we made the goal to be united with one another. Our motto this year was ‘One Team, One Dream.’ It surprises me how this goal stuck throughout the season. We really did follow our dream as a team, and you can see that by looking at our success throughout the season.”

 Lindsey’s advice? “My advice to any soccer players who are debating on whether to try out or not is to at least try. Trying can take you to new heights you never thought you could reach before.”

We once again have 5 fabulous students who have been nominated and chosen for our Excellent Explorer Award for term 2.  Here are the lucky winners:  Brendan Snyder:  Brendan really participates, and loves school!  He does his work correctly too, and he plays with classmates that are being left out.  Maggie Jones:  She makes me feel good inside and is very kind to people around her.  She is also good at paying attention in class, and even out of school.  Sadie Burtenshaw:  She always takes initiative to pick up a piece of trash and she is nice to everybody, and plays with everyone.  Jason Visentin:  Jason is always helping others.  He always volunteers to help both the students in our class and the teacher.  He is patient with others and is a buddy to anyone who needs cheering up!  Jamie Tiapson:  She is always on task and I've seen her outside and there was this one kid who saw her and she came up to him and asked if he wanted to play.  I've seen her more than once do that.  She is probably one of the kindest people I've ever known.  I've never seen her be rude or even mad. 

Thank you, students, for your great example and choosing to:  Be Kind ... Show Respect ... Work Hard!

Our younger students in grades 1-3 have been participating in their Artist in Residence rotations this week.  They will continue into next week with a parent showcase on February 2nd at 1:30 p.m.  Students were able to choose between photography, visual arts, dance and storytelling.  They have had a great time so far and are learning techniques and skills for their art medium.  Today in dance they were learning how to move with the mood and volume of the music.  In photography they learned how to look at objects from different angles such as under, through and over.   Visual arts was working on using shapes to make different patterns and designs, and storytelling was learning about using expression to tell stories.
