On the 18TH of October, selected members of Mr. LeMmon, Ms. Carter, and Ms. Lundgren's World Studies, 9TH grade classes, got the chance to visit the Hare Krishna Temple. The classes first went to the temple to learn about the Hinduism religion.

Members of the temple told us about why they have Holi-- The Festival of Colors. Spanish Fork's Holi Festival is the largest in the western hemisphere. It has over 120, 000 people attend each year.

Championship Wrestling is a Spanish Fork Junior High tradition.  It is exciting for students all over the school who plan on participating.

The head coach, John Webb was the former head coach at Weber State, the head assistant coach at BYU, and an assistant coach at Oklahoma State. The assistant coach Dave Clark has been a former coach at Cedar High School and an assistant coach at Spanish Fork High School.  These coaches are the reason that we are able to have a wrestling team in the first place.

Mystery Students

Student #1

By Tristan Anderson

              This student is in 9th grade and is a female. She has lived in one state her whole life, and that is of course Utah! She enjoys playing softball and loves munching on Berry’s fries. She has four siblings and is terrified of spiders.

              Her most embarrassing moment is when she was at Maceys grocery store; she got inside a car that she thought was hers.  When she looked again, it was the wrong car. She flew out the door and felt so embarrassed.
