SFHS Biology Class collects teddy bears for Children's Crisis Center

Brad Warren’s HOSA/Letterman club at SFHS have been busy collecting teddy bears to help children at the Women/Children Crisis center.  They collected close to 900 new stuffed animals!  These HOSA students also had the opportunity to tour Mountain View Hospital and learn more about the wide variety of careers opportunities at a hospital.


Mr. Warren’s biology and medical anatomy classes have also been involved in some exciting learning labs.  A few of these labs include using strawberries to learn about DNA extraction, cellular respiration, and dissecting cow eyes!

Medical Forensics at ALC

Ms. Grants Medical Forensics class recently pulled

out the microscopes to see if they could determine

what was on their wet mount slides. They were

challenged to use their deductions for their Medical

Forensics unit. The students were very engaged. It

was a great activity that they all seemed to enjoy.

Ms. Grant is very good at keeping her students

engaged in hands on-learning.

Advanced Learning Center Robotics Team brainstorm solutions with Bomb Squad

The ALC was humming with excitement from the Robotics department this month. Provo City Bomb Squad, Sergeant Drew Hubbard, and Sam Sorensen brought their Bomb Squad robots for the ALC Robotics students to brainstorm and figure out how to make the scope on the rifle of the Robots gain movement, up and down and side to side, zoom in and out, yet still retain the accuracy of the laser points. The discussion was very interesting to be a part of.

Spanish Fork FFA gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees held in Sandy Utah. This year our chapter did a tree in memory of Levi Sampson who lost his life in an auto-pedestrian accident this summer. Students donated over 40 pairs of jeans to help with the decorations of the tree. In addition over 40 FFA members spent time making ornaments. There was an activity and classes that helped to put everything together. We would like to thank all of those who made the tree a success.

We were able to get our name out to many of the people who were there as well as through Channel 17 news.  Our float included a reindeer barn and Santa on a tractor.   We had students who came and rode on the float.
