Students in Mrs. Whittekiend’s Next Step Prep (Business Communication) class have been working hard on perfecting their presentation and teamwork skills. Today the importance of teamwork was emphasized as a soft skill that everyone should develop. Students had fun working as teams to solve problems and think critically and creatively. Brooklyn, Annette, and Harley came up with some hands-on activities and did a great job leading the class through their presentation.
What an honor it was to donate 100 flower arrangements to the Payson Veterans home today to honor the amazing Veterans in our community! Our amazing floral students made beautiful patriotic-themed bud vase arrangements to give each Veteran at their awards banquet today. All of the Ag Students at MMHS made beautiful cards with heartfelt appreciation for those who have sacrificed to preserve our freedoms. Thank you to all of the brave men and women serving in our military and those how have served. God bless America!
Every year the FFA holds a Nationwide convention and expo. We got the amazing opportunity to attend the first convention since Covid 19 shut everything down in 2020. With bags in tow, we left for the Salt Lake City Airport at 5:30 on the 26th of October. When we arrived at the airport we went through the grueling process of TSA and check-in.
Several MMHS students were selected by School Resource Officer Clint Peterson to participate in the N.O.V.A. programs at Larsen, Sierra Bonita, and Spanish Oaks elementary schools. The MM students served on a panel and answered questions from the 5th graders about drugs, bullying, alcohol, time management skills, how to choose classes in junior high and high school, and how to make friends, among other topics. Thank you, MM students, for your great examples to these elementary students!
Spanish Fork FFA recently had the opportunity for 14 students to attend the National FFA Convention. While their students had the opportunity to listen to motivational speakers, compete, network with others from throughout the nation, and go on agricultural tours. We found some great success at the convention and want to congratulate the following
From the day we left until we came home, National FFA Convention was more than fun. It was an amazing experience. We made friends from all over the United States. We were able to see history in the Churchill Downs Museum and at the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum. During conventions sessions, we were able to see the thousands of FFA members just like us, representing their states and chapters. Students in our chapter learned that hard work pays off and even if life isn't going your way right now, don't give up. You have to keep trying every day. We encourage anyone who is in FF
