It was a windy meet, but the athletes were able to perform at their best. We had Chris Ohman who jumped 6'1" which was a personal record in the high jump this year and he qualified for state. Sean Stapel was also able to have a personal record in his high jump performance.
The girls 4x100 team took first and the boys 4x100 team took 2nd. Ceci Sumsion had a personal record throw in the Javelin. Overall, it was a good meet for Springville and there is a lot more we expect to see this season.
Track Meet was held on Saturday, April 16.
FFA and Student Council members dramatized serious scenarios including Prom night, a teen crash including a fatality, and even a mock funeral. The purpose was to increase awareness among our student body of the importance of driving safe to prevent injuries and fatalities.
FFA and Student Council members created many posters which portrayed the statistics of driving unsafe. During the assembly walk-through, which was conducted in the underground track, students were asked to write their name and pledge to “Not Drive Stupid.” Assembly was held on Tuesday, April 12.

Much Ado Aboot Nothing, eh? is a recreation of a William Shakespeare play, which is set in Messina, Canada. The story begins with everyone visiting Leonato’s cabin, with Hero and Claudio falling in love at first sight. The villain Dawn John attempts to thwart Hero’s and Claudio’s love which nearly succeeds. At the same time Don Pedro is attempting to make Benedick and Beatrice fall in love. Dawn John makes it seem like Hero has been unfaithful in order to thwart the wedding.
Friar the priest helps fake Hero’s death while he investigates whether the claim of unfaithfulness is true. Friar gets the watch to interrogate several of Dawn John’s henchmen and finds out that Hero was not unfaithful. Leonato blames the accusations of unfaithfulness on Don Pedro and Claudio. Claudio goes to Hero’s grave to pay penance, Hero looks on.
Many Modern day Shakespeare plays are “re-located” to somewhere others than the original setting. Shakespeare loves to add a little drama to his comedy and a little comedy to his drama.
Some of the male roles are being played by female actors. But the names are kept the same for clarity.
