Freshman Brian Gunyan Takes Second in State

On Saturday, March 23, Brian Gunyan, a Freshman at Spanish Fork Junior High, participated in the varsity section of the Utah State Chess tournament where he took second place in state!

Brian reported, “Unfortunately, I was unable to perform in the official segment due to other obligations. During this tournament, I took second place with 4.5/6 points, one loss and one draw that should have been a win and would have been a win if I had looked at the board for a few more seconds. The winner had 5/6 points.”

“She Tech” Seminar a Huge Success

She Tech was an amazing experience that encourages girls to get involved with technology and science. I enjoyed the entire event and would definitely recommend it to others.

Some of my favorite features include the “Raspberry Pi” class.  Raspberry Pi is a very basic computer you can program to do different things. In the “Girls Who Code” after-school club, we are using this technology to build a robotic dog.

Freshmen Explore Career Choices

Recently, our 9th graders completed some activities on www.utahfutures.org . Students took the Career Cluster Inventory and were able to look up occupations and what education is needed for careers they are interested in.

They were also able to look up college admission information so they are familiar with what is required and how to do a scholarship search to see the thousands of scholarships available and how to apply.
