The winners of the 2015 SHHS Knowledge Bowl enjoy their victory lunch at Tucano's.

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” --Mark Twain

 Next week is our spring break, and I think all of us can relate a little to what Mark Twain was talking about when he spoke of "spring fever." Our hope is that the break helps you find a portion of what your heart is aching for, whether it's an adventure, time with family and friends, rest and relaxation, or a little of each. We hope you have a fabulous break and come back recharged, energized, and ready to finish the 2014-2015 school year strong!    

 Have a great week and GO SKYHAWKS!

Skyhawk Highlights:

SHHS Track and Field: Congratulations again to the Skyhawk Track team on another great meet over the weekend!  They competed at the UVU Invitational against 28 schools from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and California.  The Men's team finished in 7th place overall, and the Women's team continued their undefeated season by finishing 1st place overall!  Great job Skyhawks!

This team continues to set and break records (sometimes their own)! RJ Lundberg broke his own record in the 2 mile run with a time of 9:33. Haley Johnston broke her own record in the 2 mile run with a time of 11:24. The girls 4x100 Relay team (Ashlyn Bradley, Amber Edmondson, Kaylie Adams and Paige Simmons) broke their own school record with a time of 49.64. Also, we failed to recognize Devin Minson last week for breaking the school record in the 300 Hurdles with a time of 41.61 in a meet at Provo HS.

Day dawns on another great day at SHHS.

Thomas Jefferson said, "Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day." We've had some really cool sunrises lately, and I was able to take a picture of a particularly awesome one last week. However, as is usually the case, my picture didn't come near to doing the sunrise justice. It did, though, serve to get me thinking about the quote I included in this week's newsletter and how the dawn of day gives us new life and hope.

As we begin a new and final term of the year, I hope the experiences your student(s) is (are) having here at Salem Hills High School are helping them gain the enlightenment and understanding they will draw from in future days to overcome the "tyranny" and "oppressions" of "mind" that they face.  It is our sincere hope as a faculty and staff that your student's days dawn with spirit, heart, honor, and success that they've learned, and continue to learn, here at Salem Hills High School.   

Skyhawk Highlights: 

SHHS Debate: Our school's debate team finished in 4th place at the state debate recently; this is the highest that our team has ever placed. Coach Welton is proud of his team and the progress they continue to make from year to year. Congratulations to our SHHS debate team!

They defeated region competitor Springville HS in the tournament championship. They followed up their tournament win by defeating the Red Devils again last night by a score of 5-2.

SHHS Drama: The Drama III class competed in the region one-act play and individual events over the past couple of weeks. They took 3rd in the one-act play event, and the following students qualified for state in individual events: Isabel Truax, Beth Mitchell, and KC Johnson - Straight superiors in Musical Theatre; Richard Call - Pantomime; Brayden Kane - Dramatic Monologue; Ammon Flint - Straight superiors in Dramatic Monologue. Congratulations to these students and good luck at state!

SHHS Boys' Soccer: The boys had a good week on the pitch last week. They lost a close game with Provo HS last Tuesday 1-0 but bounced back with an awesome win against Timpview HS on Thursday (3/19).

Rebecca Holt, Devin Minson, Garrett Parry, and Samantha Sands enjoying a fun-filled night at the PALS Ball.

As you undoubtedly have picked up on if you've followed these newsletters, I love the profound wisdom that can be found in the simplest of quotes, and this week I found such wisdom in this quote from Babe Ruth: "Every strike brings me closer to the next homerun." I guess with the spring weather and our spring sports in full swing (pardon the pun), I chose to focus my message on this  baseball quote and metaphor. We certainly have all had our share of strikes and strikeouts (to use the metaphor) in life. However, it's comforting to realize that Thomas Edison didn't invent the light bulb with his first swing; Orville and Wilbur Wright struck out a few times with their flying machine; and the homeruns known as the iPod, iTunes, and iPhone gave Steve Jobs the distinction of masterminding, what some would say, the greatest turnaround in business history only after he had his share of strikeouts. The point is, we can't quit; we can't give up; we have to swing with all our might because that next hit might be one of our homeruns!    

Skyhawk Highlights:

SHHS Debate: The national debate qualifiers were held last week, and two students from our school qualified for the NSDA (National Speech and Debate Association) Nationals in Dallas, Texas this June. Jenessa Pratt qualified 1st in Oratory, and Juliana Millet qualified 1st in Congress. Our school also had several students qualify for the NSDA Nationals as alternates: Caleb Sly (Lincoln Douglas), Emily Miller and Sierra Draper (Policy), and Hannah Wallentine and Alea Simmons (Public Forum).

SHHS also qualified three students for the NCFL (National Catholic Forensic League) Nationals which will be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in may: Caleb Sly, 1st, Lincoln Douglas; Juliana Millet, 1st, Congress; and Jenessa Pratt, 1st, Oratory.

Coach Welton was very proud of the overall performance of his team. He stated that this is the first year any student from SHHS qualified for NSDA Nationals, and three students is the most that have qualified for NCFL. Congratulations to our debate team!

SHHS PALS Ball: Our annual PALS Ball was held last Friday night (3/6) in the cafeteria, and our SHHS students danced into the night burning up the dance floor with their impressive moves. The theme of the ball was Despicable Me, and there actually was a sighting of a dancing, yellow minion. It was a great night, and we appreciate all who made it so!

SHHS Baseball: Our SHHS baseball team won the Desert Hills Tournament in St. George last weekend (3/6 & 3/7). The team defeated Copper Hills HS, Murray HS, Desert Hills HS, and Murray HS again to claim the tournament title. Last night (3/10) the team played Herriman HS and won in dramatic fashion, 11-10, on a walk-off balk. The team next plays Saturday (3/14) at 11:00 AM here at SHHS.  Come out and support the baseball team as they look to continue their winning ways.

SHHS Boys' Soccer: The boys' soccer team kicked off their season against Jordan HS last Friday (3/6) afternoon. They played the Beatdiggers to a 1-1 tie, and played well and competed hard throughout the match. The team played last night (3/10) at Riverton HS and lost to the defending 5A champions 3-0. The team next plays Payson HS here on March 16.

SHHS Softball: Our state champion team of a year ago began the defense of their title against Manti HS yesterday and did so with an impressive win defeating the Templars 9-1. The ladies next play on Friday (3/13) in the Dixie Tournament in St. George.

SHHS Sterling Scholar Finalists: Kenny Van Ausdal  (Art) and Nicole Flinders (Vocal Performance) were runners-up  for State Sterling Scholars. Congratulations to these two exceptionally gifted students!     

SHHS Track and Field: The boys' and girls' track teams got off to a great start in their first meet of the season which was held at Springville HS yesterday (3/10). Our teams competed against Springville HS and Wasatch HS in the tri-team meet; though the final meet results aren't in yet, Coach Thompson was pleased with how the teams performed. Our teams next compete in the Cougar Relays at Kearns HS this Friday and Saturday (3/13 & 3/14).

This year's Mr. Skyhawk contestants; event sponsored by SHHS FCCLA.

"A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don't have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed." --Nelson Mandella

I came across this quote recently, and it coincided nicely with our debate team winning their sixth consecutive region debate title. This quote also gave me pause to reflect on our school, our faculty, and staff and the impact they are having on our students. I am proud to work at SHHS and associate with colleagues who, to borrow from the ideas of Mandella's quote, prioritize student learning and teach our students the importance of putting aside arrogance, overcoming superficial behavior, and ensuring our students are not uninformed or ignorant, be it in preparation for a debate or not.

Skyhawk Highlights:

SHHS Debate: As mentioned previously, our debate team won their sixth consecutive region title last Saturday (2/28)! Congratulations to Coach Welton and the dabate team: Karlee Bowles (3rd, Foreign Extemp.),  Caleb Sly (1st, Lincoln Douglas), Andrew Christensen (2nd, Lincoln Douglas), Juliana Millet (1st, Student Congress), Elisheba Armstrong (2nd, Student Congress), Ethan Adams (4th, Student Congress), Bethany Davis (6th, Student Congress), Seth Erickson and Erik Johnson (1st, Public Forum), Amy Robinson and Maleah Cook (4th, Public Forum), Kenny Van Ausdal (1st, Oratory), Albina Truax (Tied for 2nd, Oratory), Jenessa Pratt (Tied for 2nd, Oratory), Amber Southwick (1st, National Extemp.), Jeff DeGraffenried (Tied for 3rd, National Extemp.), Ashton Overbay (1st, Impromptu), and Jackson Martin (4th, Impromptu). Next up for the debate team will be a national qualifier held here at SHHS this Thursday, March 5.

SHHS FBLA Competition: At this week's FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) competition students from SHHS finished with high scores in several categories. Sierra Draper finished 2nd in Job interview; Lauren Bennett finished 3rd in Word Processing; Lauren also finished 3rd in Database Design and Application and 9th in Business Communications; Hannah Wheelwright placed 10th in Public Speaking. Congratulations to these future business leaders!

SHHS Lashays: The Lashays' Showcase which was Thursday (3/5) of this week featured awesome dancing by our drill team and several local dance companies as well. Our Lashays and Coach Stokes did a fabulous job with the performance.
