Congratulations to the 7th grade football team for winning the super bowl! The 7th graders are the only grade in the school that won their super bowl. They played a tough game against Springville, a team that they had lost against earlier in the season. Everybody came together as a team and several students made some great plays that helped our team take the victory. That is incredible. We are so proud of the 7th graders!

The Spartan Chronicle returns

Submitted by sam.mcgrath on Wed, 10/25/2017 - 14:39

After a two year absence, we have decided to bring back our school newspaper The Spartan Chronicle. After Mrs. Ashworth used old Chronicles in her production of Guys and Dolls last year, students began asking why we didn't have a paper anymore, so we have brought it back. 

Our journalism students are proud of their articles and excited to see their names and their writing in the newspaper. Having a large audience like this can be great motivation to get kids writing more.
