We would like to congratulate the boys golf team on an excellent season. After 8 tournaments, they came up only 9 strokes short of qualifying for state. For the season, they improved 222 strokes from last year--that's an average of 28 strokes per tournament. With 10 players coming back, they are expecting even better results next year. We would like to give a shout out to yesterday's top performers at Wasatch: Jayden Parkinson, Brock Nielson and Ty Bennett all led the team with scores in the 70's.

Ernest Hemingway, the great American author, said, "As you get older it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary." At Salem Hills High School this year we have been challenged by our principal, Mr. Peery, to be heroes to those around us. He's challenged us to be heroes to our students, classmates, colleagues, friends, and neighbors and be a source of strength and support in their lives. We are extending the challenge to you, our entire school community, to, as Mr.
Vince Lombardi, the great hall-of-fame football coach of the Greenbay Packers, once said, "There is only one way to succeed at anything and that is to give it everything!" We are committed to making our school the best it can be, and, like Vince Lombardi admonished, we are going to put everything we've got into ensuring that happens. We expect our students to give their studies and activities here at SHHS everything they've got. And we know that our students' parents are giving everything they can to help our students be successful.
Come join Mr. White, Mr. Burton, Mr. Peery or Mr. Tischner for the greatest detention experience you may ever have. If you would like to roll back the number of detention hours from last year, come and talk to one of the Administration Team about Double Time.
While walking through the halls of our school and supervising our various activities this last week and interacting with our students, teachers, staff, and coaches and watching them perform academically, musically, and athletically, I had a bit of an epiphany: our school is really AWESOME! I witnessed how tremendously talented and motivated to succeed our students are, and I witnessed how committed and devoted our teachers, coaches, and staff are to helping our students tap into and discover their potential. It is so cool to see it happening and to be a part of it every day.
