Successful Night at the Skyhawk Gorge!


Salem Hills High School's annual 'Skyhawk Gorge' was a huge success!  Our Make-A-Wish recipient Lydia is on her way to Walt Disney World.  A special thanks to our students, families, teachers and sponsors!  We couldn't have done it without you!

Skyhawk Gorge

The INFAMOUS Skyhawk Gorge is happening on Monday, November 4th.  This is Salem Hills High School and the Communities effort to help " Make a Wish" for a student we love.  Come by between 5 and 7 PM that night to taste the variety of foods sponsored by each class.  You may purchase individual, or family passes to the Gorge.  There will also be highly entertaining acts throughout the night performing in the auditorium.

Only Sophomores Attend School on Nov 6

Our sophomores will be taking the PLAN test on November 6th.  This day will also be one of our Minimal Days so the Sophomores will be coming home early.  Because of the space and personnel requirements our Jr's and Sr's will not  attend school.  The busses will run the regular times (for our Minimal Days)  for our Sophomores, lunch will also be served.

Thursday Football Game is Veterans Night

All Veterans will be admitted free to the football game against Orem this Thursday.  Before the game there will be a small Thank You tailgate dinner for all Veterans.  Right before kick off we would like to recognize all Veterans by having you join us in the center of the field.  Our football team, student body, and fantastic fans want you to know we appreciate your service and remeber still your sacrifice.
