As many of you start thinking about buying flowers and planting a vegetable garden, keep SFHS Greenhouse in mind. Greenhouse management classes have worked hard planting seeds and caring for plants over the past few months. We have a variety of vegetable starts as well as annual bedding plants.
We will open Friday May 11th from 3-6pm and Saturday May 12th from 9am-1pm. We will then be open the following weekends until we are sold out. To find the greenhouse:Pull into the back parking lot where the Spanish Fork Swimming pool and seminary building are located. The drivers ed driving range will be on your right. As you reach the end of the driving range, turn right and as you drive through you will see the greenhouses. We will also have signs for you to follow. Thanks and we look forward to seeing some of you next weekend.

Governor Gary R. Herbert has declared May 3, 2018 as “Utah Prevention Day!” Utah Prevention Day gives schools around the state an opportunity to celebrate the prevention lessons that students have learned throughout the year. Teachers can review and reinforce those life skills taught before students leave for the summer. We want to protect our students from the dangers of drugs, under-age drinking, violence, crime, and bullying.
There will be a central celebration of Utah Prevention Day on May 3rd at the Smith’s Ballpark with the Salt Lake Bees and 12,000 students and teachers. Governor and Mrs. Herbert will be in attendance to present the signed declaration. Click on the link to see a copy of the Governor’s Declaration.

I would like to congratulate the team from the Nebo ALC who won the 3rd annual Code Camp. The Code Camp is sponsored by the Mountainland CTE region, MTech, and Xactware. The students had 24 hours to design an application, created it, and have working a working prototype. The ALC team had 1 student from Salem Hills HS & 3 students from Spanish Fork HS. Their application was 1st place in the business division of the competition. Their was application was designed to look at the blood sugar levels collected by a blood sugar monitor for several years from a person and use software to predict what it would be coming up and to make a prediction on a computer or cell phone the past several readings. They also created a website to market the product. One of the sponsors made a comment to me that they worked really well as a team.
Congratulations to your students,

Spanish Fork, Utah--
Several Utah County schools are joining forces to do something special for students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as part of Utah Kindness Month.
This effort began shortly after Valentine's Day as tragic news from Parkland Florida blanketed headlines across the country. Mr. Glen Zobell, Science Teacher at Timpanogos High School was inspired to do something to heal those who were hurting across the country. Zobell served a LDS Mission to Japan and had a strong background in origami. As you look around his classroom, you will see many complex and beautiful examples of his amazing paper art.
As heartbreaking news from Florida eclipsed local heartwarming stories, the Daily Herald highlighted a Junior at Spanish Fork High School, who wanted to help students and staff know that they are respected, remembered and loved. Sterling Brinkerhoff, with help of hundreds of volunteers and sponsors ensured that every student and staff member at Spanish Fork High School received an origami flower and Valentine's Day treat, donated by Mrs. Calls Caramels and V Chocolates. The flower design was an original created by Sterling in 5th Grade, representing a lily instead of a rose. A heart folds out with a hidden message of hope and encouragement. The lily has represented faith, wisdom and chivalry since the 14th century.
Mr. Zobell contacted Sterling after reading the story to see if together, they could do something similar. Within days, two schools were united in an effort to share that same message with students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
As Sterling was trying to connect with someone to receive the flowers in Florida, Mr. Ryan Petty was in Utah during the last week of the 2018 Legislative Session. Father of one of the shooting victims, he initiated a declaration that April be designated as Utah Kindness Month- in memory of the goodness of his daughter. Sterling contacted him and was able to start setting dates to build flowers for Florida. Mr. Petty was excited to hear about the effort and wanted it to serve as an example to others around the world.
This project is a significantly larger folding project than Sterling's recent one for Valentine's Day. With 3600 origami flowers, supplies and shipping was a growing concern on a limited budget. Paper supplies have been generously donated by The Paper Store and More, located at 1786 South State Street in Orem. Shipping and copies have been kindly donated by the UPS Store in Springville and Spanish Fork.
Mr. Zobell invited several school clubs and organizations to help in the effort. They will be hosting an origami party April 9th at Timpanogos High School from 6:30- 9:00 p.m.
Spanish Fork High School will be hosting the second origami party on Wednesday April 11th from 4:00-9:00 p.m. Brinkerhoff invited the entire Spanish Fork community to participate. He commented, “If I were to build 3600 of these flowers myself, it would require more than 900 hours to get it completed. United schools and communities together can get it done quicker and have a much stronger impact for everyone involved. I am so excited to see everyone who wants to build these flowers. They are not the easiest flowers to make, but to me they are some of the most beautiful.”
Brinkerhoff concluded, “It was incredible that Mr. Zobell contacted me to do something on this scale. I am so impressed with him and his enthusiasm. This is going to be a lot of fun.”
