Parents, Students, and Friends -


HOPE Squads are the eyes and ears of our  school. They are comprised of students who are trained to watch for at-risk students–provide friendship, identify warning signs, and seek help from adults.


HOPE WEEK is a time to raise awareness about HOPE squad and what they do. Throughout the week students are given opportunities to forge new friendships and combat feelings of loneliness or isolation.

Boys Basketball: Spanish Fork vs Springville

by Megan Oldham

Within the first 5 minutes of the game, Spanish Fork had already scored 5 points! The crowd was cheering loudly even when we didn’t have the ball. Within the next 5 minutes, we had been fouled many times. One of our players hurt his back while trying to block the other team’s shot, but now he’s ok.

By half time, the score was 25-15; we were annihilating them. Springville had the ball and was taking it down. Number 3, Cade Olsen, stole the ball, ran down the court and made an awesome 3 pointer!

Goodbye, First Semester

by Karissa Johnson

Woo-hoo! Only two more terms until school is out. First semester is ending, so hurry and make sure you have all of your missing assignments in. Hopefully, all of us have had a great first semester. Unfortunately, as all good things must come end, so does this. On Friday, there will be no school. On our day off, the most important thing to do is to sleep in. Make sure to make it a great day.
