Skyhawk Gorge

This fabulous feed is coming soon....Monday, November 19th starting at 5:00pm.  What is the Skyhawk Gorge?  It is a time when we all gather together to help another.  Taylor Warr is the individual we are helping this year, he is one of our students at Salem Hills High School who is going through some significant difficulties in his life.  The Gorge is one of our ways to help Taylor out and provide him with a small dream by using the proceeds from the Gorge to grant this.  

All the clubs at the school will have tables set up with some scrumptious foods.  Some will be good to eat, some are even good for you to eat.  It is a wonderful event for the entire family to come try many foods that you might not get a chance at eating, except for at the Gorge.  Take the opportunity to enjoy this time and bring another family or two, maybe a family with kids that will soon be coming to Salem Hills High School.  

Happy Gorging!

Marching Band and our Volleyball team both take 3rd at State competitions

Congratulations to our Marching band who went down to St. George and competed for the state title.  For the overall competition they took a very respectable 3rd place.  Thanks for representing your school so well.  Our percussion section placed first at the same competition, way to go Percussion! 

 

Our Volleyball team had great and exciting games Friday at the tournament, sending their opponents out with what seemed very little effort.  Saturday morning Skyview came out strong and furious, beating the Skyhawks in 3.  The Skyview team went on to win the title that evening.  That afternoon our girls did very well and beat Westlake in 3 for 3rd place.  Way to come back after a tough loss and put together a great match girls.
