North Sanpete High School
Four of the school’s choir students sang with 590 other Utah high school students in an all-state choir event in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Saturday, Oct. 8. Audrey Oldroyd, Lydia Madsen, Abraham Bunting and Brenden Blackham spent three days in Salt Lake to rehearse with the all-state group before the performance on Saturday. “It was really cool to sing with 590 other students who worked hard and wanted to be there,” Lydia Madsen told the Messenger.
As a reminder, all district schools will take fall break from October 20-24.

Briggs instructed his students using the Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) system, showing them how heat is transferred into cylinders of the ovens and how it can prepare food. Students got real world experience and put their various oven creations to use on Friday, Oct. 7.

Students can also bring in mason jars full of goodies to donate to the ring toss games. Water bottles, jelly jars or any other container of similar size can be used. The PTA asks for goods to be in wrapped packages if you are planning to donate.
