"Fishing For Careers" - Springville High Career Fair

In February for CTE Month during lunch, students were "Fishing for Careers". Students were made aware of the AWESOME CAREER CHOICES  they get to make individually and the possibility of an INTERNSHIP. "They can't just leave it to chance" explains Mr. Black as each kid pulled over a new career pathway during the fishing activity. This activity was a prelude to the Career Fair that will be held on March 25th where students will be able to visit with professionals from around the valley who have been successful in their career choices.

Spanish Fork FFA Proficiency Award Area Winners

FFA had some students with awesome success. The proficiency award program recognizes students for the skills they have developed through their Supervised Agriculture Experience (where they take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in a real-world setting). In January, 8 of our students were named Area Winners (our version of region).  These students then moved on to the state competition which was held February 9.

Our girls from MMHS had a great time at Microsoft's DigiGirlz event where they built their own brush bots, designed homes using AutoDesk, used block codes to create their own video games, and learned about career opportunities for women in tech careers. They had a blast! #CTE #DigiGirlz

Springville High School Celebrates CTE Month

To celebrate CTE Month at Springville High School students were asked to think about how they plan on making their first 100 Grand? They were then challenged to think  of careers that they are interested in and submitted their responses on $100 bills. After they shared their interest with Mr. Black and taped them on the wall, he gave them a kick-start to their career pathway by giving them a 100 Grand candy bar.
