Springville High is celebrated for its outstanding athletics programs; but, what you might not know, is that SHS also has an exceptional choir program. Last year Mrs. Leanna Crockett retired as choir director, and the reins were left in the hands of Mrs. Leslie Walker. 

Walker is an excellent teacher; and, even though she has volunteered at Springville High for the past 17 years, she has officially been a member of the Red Devil faculty for the past three. This is her first year as director over all SHS choirs.  

Springville is home to multiple choirs:  Singers, Concert Choir, Belle Canto, and Red Devil Men.  After the choir’s first performance, the concert received raved reviews for its excellence.  Even though Walker has been with us for a long time, we are so proud of her in all she does and gives for the SHS choirs—we know there are many more fantastic years to come under her direction.

This December Springville High’s DECA club organized a “Santa letters” service project.  DECA students visited elementary schools in Springville and decided to be Santa’s Elves. This was a good way to get all the SHS clubs involved; DECA reached out to every elementary school in Springville and the response was astonishing.  The club ended up with over 800 letters to respond to so DECA club members had to act fast.

DECA opened this opportunity for service to all clubs at Springville High.  Everyone who wanted to participate had the chance to discover their fun side with writing to children--telling them things about how nice they have been and that the North Pole was very busy this year.

Once students finished writing the response letters, students decorated the letters and put them in a big present to deliver to the children. Santa’s little helpers went to each school to deliver the great treats. This service project put so many smiles on their faces and was a great present for most of them.  DECA club, with the help of other service clubs at SHS, really enjoyed this service project and hope to continue it throughout the years.

LIA served as volunteers in a Christmas/dinner party for the United Angels Foundation. In addition, LIA students from SJHS and SHS collected 2,289 letters to Santa for Macy's "Believe" program. Macy's donated $2 per letter to the Make A Wish Foundation. That is a contribution of approximately $4,600. The money is used to grant wishes to children with terminal illnesses

The SHS DECA club wrote and delivered letters from Santa to several Springville elementary schools today. The students were so excited!

DECA already heard from several elementary school teachers this afternoon:

"The students were SO excited. The big box was so impressive, curiosity was through the roof!"

"The excitement my 1st graders felt today was priceless! The presentation of the whole thing was simply awesome and I could not have asked for anything better! Job well done!"

"Oh my goodness! Thank you soooooo much! The light in my students' eyes and the smiles on their faces are inexplainable! This was so magical and amazing for them! Thank you for doing this!!"

Recently the Springville High wrestling team had their first home match on December 3rd. They also attended the “Skyhawk Showdown” which is a tournament in which they compete against different high schools in Nebo District. Unfortunately, Springville had to forfeit, but not before they had some victories against some of the schools they were faced against.

“We have a pretty solid team all around,” Senior and Captain Jared Lopez stated. “Everybody learns at their own pace and they try as hard as they can.”

Springville’s wresting team knows winning isn’t everything, and they work to perfect their moves and try to make weight at practices.

Make sure to go support our high school wrestlers at their next tournament in Juab.  

Introducing the 2015-2016 Springville High wrestling team:
Seniors: Justin Crookston, Jared Lopez, and Gunther Snodgrass
Juniors: Simon Taylor
Sophomores: Harrison Brown, Tyler Bush, Carson Davis, Dallin Giatras, Benjamin Graham, Enrique Quezada, and Jessica Rojas
Freshman: Gage Crookston, Corbin Dallin, Colten McQuivey, and Aaron Mele
