Mrs Harmers 9th grade World Civilizations classes were able to experience life in a trench while learning about WWI. Students learned about the Christmas truce, poison gases, and conditions associated with trench warfare!
Friday, April 27 was the Disney themed school dance! The dance was held in the lunch room, which was decorated by our impressive student council. There was also a costume competition. People had amazing costumes including Rapunzel, Bell, a Wizard, Queen Guinevere, and even some interesting background characters! It was well attended and everyone looked like they were having fun. There were plenty of beautiful decorations like silhouettes of Disney characters. The music ranged from Disney music to the Cupid Shuffle.
Pepper the Guinea Pig came into Mr. Madsen’s class today for the second time, surprising many students. As the classes continued on, students looked at her with adoration. All of the students from fifth period to seventh period had seen and petted her before, so this was a first for the first four periods of students. Mr. Madsen held and petted her often, and she is simply adorable according to most students.
This last weekend, on April 20 and 21, members of our school’s National Junior Honor Society joined together to help with a BSA Eagle Project. The Eagle Project was for Caleb Pollock, a student at our school. The project began with clearing rocks from the school’s field. Shortly afterward, the volunteers helped to clear rocks off the retaining walls on the east side of the school. The next morning, the rocks were completely removed and the volunteers helped to spread mulch where the rocks had been.
In Mr. Madsen’s and Mr. Whiting’s science classes, the students had a great learning experience. They headed outside to a timeline in the track field to observe and learn about the Earth. Students learned about the Earth over time, and they learned about the geologic and biologic points of it. There were multiple stations to learn about. For example, the Precambrian, Phanerozoic, Cenozoic, and Quaternary periods.
Last week, Mr. Gibson’s art class had a final project for their term on the watercolor technique. They were given one week to create a project on watercolor paper that was uniquely their own. Some of the projects featured flowers, cactuses, dancers etc. Each one was made with compassion and style of their very own.

Cade Olsen, 8th grader from Spanish Fork Junior battles for 1st in the 400M dash. Cade finishes 2nd behind Mt. Nebo and runs a personal best of 54.9 seconds, that's 4 seconds faster than his performance just a week ago.
Animal Science classes got to learn about the importance of therapy animals. Mini horses can be therapy animals with lots and lots of training. Ever After Mini's brought two of their therapy horses to class today. Students learned about care and training of a therapy horse, they learned about horse behavior and benefits of a therapy animal. Horses are for people with memory loss. Often times people make connections with them if they have ever owned a horse before.
Mrs. Brockbank’s class was assigned to make a project that represented a book that they liked. Some of the ideas for projects consisted of comic strips, stories, a coat of arms, and more. These projects were meant to represent either the main characters in a book, or something like a big event that happened in a book, or just to give a short summary to get people hooked on a good book. The projects were a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed being creative and working on a fun project.
