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,

Carl Lyman

Another Spanish Fork Junior Student Gets Published

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Mon, 04/16/2018 - 6:00am

Emily Wessman is a writer. When she heard about the opportunity to submit a poem to UVU's Write Outside Yourself Journal, she submitted a poem called "Illuminate the Forgotten." This beautifully written poem met the criteria of "Tales Throughout TIme," "exploring or reinventing different eras in history or presenting possible futures."

 Emily's poem was one of only two accepted for publication. Middle and high school students from across the state of Utah were all invited to submit, so this is a great honor for Emily to have her poem selected to be published.  

Emily will be honored at a launch party this summer, and her poem will be published in Volume V of the print and online journal. You don't have to wait for the published version, however. Simply ask, and Emily will be happy to let you read her poem. Congratulations, Emily, and keep on writing!
