Freedom Walk

The Spanish Fork American Legion Post 68 hosted the second annual Freedom Walk at the Spanish Fork Sports Park on May 8 and 9. Members from each of the branches of the military were represented and told stories to nearly 1,250 fifth-graders from 13 schools during the two-day event.

Prior to the walk, each student either interviewed or researched a veteran and wrote a summary of what they learned. One-page summaries and photos of these veterans, many of which are family members, were attached to banners, creating a Wall of Honor which lined the walking route.

During the event, students completed a walk around the park, symbolic of walking in the shoes of the veteran they interviewed or researched. Along the walk were seven stations where Legion members would tell stories and even show items from their service. One student designed a shirt that was worn by all students which read, “We didn’t know them all, but we owe them all.”

Last year’s Freedom Walk was the first, and was conceived by Legion member Richard Johnson as a way to help the youth have a better understanding and appreciation for military veterans. According to Legion members, the walk is unlike any other event organized by the Legion.

“This event allows us to help the kids have a better understanding of and appreciation for the Flag and the sacrifices made by everyone who has served in the military,” said Legion Member Wayne Anderson.

Preparation for the Spring Concert

Trumpets, trombones, clarinets, flutes, tubas, euphoniums, french horns, and percussion. The Spanish Fork Junior High School Concert Band is practicing for their Spring Concert. They are playing songs like “DarkHeart” which is actually a piece of music based off a book. The book is called “Dark Adventure” which is a fictional book which includes much magic. “DarkHeart” is supposed to be part of a scene where the main character is running away from the castle. According to Max Fraser, 9th grade Concert Band percussionist, “It’s really challenging, but is a fun piece. I like the style of the music; it’s kind of creepy, but it’s also really fast-paced.”

       The band is also performing a piece called “Resplendent Light (On Walden Pond)” which is a slow touching piece. According to Enoch Sanchez, 8th grade trombonist, “The piece portrays how we as a group can help better ourselves so we may better others. When we have accomplished this, we may finally see the beauty in nature and in everyday life and reach what I like to call, ‘Resplendent Light’.” I couldn’t have described it any better myself.

“The Great Locomotive Chase” is, in my opinion, our best piece. It contains many percussion instruments. You will find chimes, bells, drums, timpani,  and even the rim of an actual train. I can’t really describe to you how they all sound. The percussion music is supposed to have sounds that sound as though they would be on or near a train.  While the percussion is doing that, the entire rest of the band is making the piece flow together, have meaning, and really does everything else.

The band has been working very hard on these songs and pieces. They play every single day trying to work out every single mistake. If you would like to see the Spring Concert they will be performing at Spanish Fork High School, on Thursday, May 17.

SAGE Testing

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 05/15/2018 - 6:16am
Attributions: By Ian Paxton

The end of the school year often comes with stress to get your grades up, procrastinated assignments suddenly seeming more important, and frantically searching through an oversized binder to find that one missing paper. Probably the greatest of many students’ worries is SAGE Testing. Like any other overwhelmingly important test, the teachers stress to their students to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and bring a water bottle if they want. SAGE Testing takes information from the start of the year to the end, and puts them all into one great big test. Though they don’t speak very highly of this unnerving test, students do seem excited to see their score at the end. Perhaps it’s because they get to see how well they did. Or maybe it’s simply because they know they’re finally done.
