On November 1st, Seniors from both Spanish Fork High School and Maple Mountain High School had the opportunity to go on "College Tours." Seniors could choose to attend BYU/UVU, Utah State University, Snow College, University of Utah, MTECH Campuses, or USU Eastern. Representatives of the Colleges were there to greet the students, give them a personalized tour, and provide the students with information about their respective colleges. It was a great opportunity for students to visit a college campus and learn more about their post-secondary education options. Thank you to Kelly Seale, our Career Service Coordinator, for all her hard work and preparation in lining up the tours.

Spanish Fork FFA finished a great year with the school garden program. This was our second year selling produce at the Spanish Fork Farmers Market. In total 7 students worked throughout the summer in the garden here at the school, taking care of the plants, harvesting, and selling produce. This year we grew 250 tomato plants, 75 pepper plants, 30 melon plants, and various squash plants. Our harvest was great this year, in total we harvested over 3,150 pounds of tomatoes, 50 melons, and countless squash and peppers! In total the garden sold nearly $2000 of produce at the Spanish Fork Farmers Market! Students were also able to bring produce from their home gardens, and sold over $500 of produce grown at their homes. Students learned many skills from plant care, disease and pest control, and marketing.

Change in NC/NG Attendance Policy

Fri, 10/27/2017 - 12:18pm

This is a reminder that we have changed our NC/NG policy this year. In order to graduate from SFHS, each student will need 32 academic credits and 32 citizenship credits.

At the end of the term, we will no longer put an NG over an academic grade for attendance issues. We will, however, keep the NC in the Citizenship column and students will still need to serve detention and pay for the citizenship recovery as they have in the past. 

Please see the overview sheet attached to this post.

The Natural Resource Science class had the opportunity to assist the Division of Wildlife Resources today with their annual Gilnet survey at Jordanelle reservoir. Students aided the DWR in pulling fish from the nets. Then, students assisted in measuring, weighing, and observing stomach content of the fish. Students also assisted the DWR in writing down the data for every fish in the nets. This was a great opportunity to get these students in a hands on opportunity where students could work with professionals in a career that these students are interested in.

Counselors visit the U for you!

Our Counselors visited the University of Utah and were able to get in on all the up and coming things happening at the U! The University of Utah is a great school and is ranked in the Top 100 of all universities in the World! The U of U has refined their admission process from the former "admissions index criteria" to a new, "holistic approach." They now consider both academic preparation as well as personal achievements when determining who they will accept. The counselors were able to learn some helpful tips about filling out the application, so if you are planning to apply- go see the counselors! Two things you will want to be certain to do if you are planning on going to the U are as follows: make sure you apply by December 1st and make sure to send your ACT scores directly to the University! The counselors are unable to send your scores; you need to send them from act.org, or list them as one of the schools to have your scores sent to when taking the ACT. If you have further questions go see the counselors. GO UTES!

Counselors attend SUU "Counselor Days"

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!
