If you know anything about Park Elementary, the first thing you would think of is the Leader in Me program.  But, there is something else at Park that is just as special.  Mrs. Graham, our wonderful and caring computer specialist teacher, has spent about an hour a week for the past four months working with a special group of students called P.A.L.S or Park Advanced Learning System. 

In this group, students have been studying the history of our amazing city.  Students recently took a field trip around Spanish Fork learning about its’ Icelandic heritage and the Spanish explorers Escalante and Dominguez.  When visiting the Pioneer Cemetery, Spring Kemper said: “I had fun! Half of my family is Danish and we learned about the people who were Danish. I had so much fun reading all the signs.”  Hampton White said: “I definitely enjoyed learning about Spanish Fork and, hope to learn more.” 

Spanish Fork is a wonderful city with a rich heritage of pioneers and leaders in history.  Park Elementary also has a rich heritage and is a beacon in the community of Spanish Fork thanks to teachers like Mrs. Graham and the amazing P.A.L.S students!
