Three of our amazing students were able to attend a Hope Squad training today in Provo. They learned valuable information in how to help their fellow students who may be facing difficult challenges. We're so lucky to have such caring students who look out for each other!

Underwater robotics is an after school 4h club. They had a competition March 23, 2017. They competed at Lehi Rec Center. Underwater robotics is a club where you and your team build a robot with the materials given, then they send it into the water to go grab some items. One of the groups at our school made it into the top 10. They said they used many useful tactics such as: pool noodles to help it, the pool noodles made it not completely sink or float. They also used tons of superglue to hold it all together.

I played high school soccer in the fall and I know for a certain that  it takes lots of time and dedication to be on the team. Spend lots of hours out of school for games and everyday after school. Its also important to keep up with school and make sure that soccer doesn’t get in the way of it. Soccer team also gives you an opportunity to make close friends and learn new skills to always keep improving as a team. High school soccer helps you learn how to work as a team on and off the field and it also helps you get exercise everyday and get stronger.
