SFHS Business students in Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Whittekiend’s classes had a short lesson about Brand Identity and Brand Recognition before choosing a brand to represent on their blank turkey. The rules stated that they couldn’t directly use the logo or the brand name, but needed to make the turkey’s brand recognizable. We have so many fun and creative students!
Students from the MMHS advanced welding class were able to go on a field trip where they toured 4 union halls (sheet metal workers, pipefitters, ironworkers, and boilermakers) and Weber State University's welding engineering department. It was a long day of over 10 hours and 200 miles but the students enjoyed using the equipment at several of the union halls, learning about post-high school options, and meeting with multiple experts in the field of welding and other trades. Thank you to everyone who made this field trip possible!
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!
