Dear Diamond Fork Parents,

Character is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. Good character is doing the right thing because it is right to do what is right. Abraham Lincoln said, “Reputation is the shadow, character is the tree.” Our character is more than what we show to others, it is who we are when no one is watching. Our character determines how we respond to our successes and our failures in every event and circumstance.

Dear Diamond Fork Parents,

We are embarking on our 2nd semester journey this week! It seems as though the latter part of the school year flies! The Roman writer, Seneca, once stated, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” At the beginning of each semester, during E-time, teachers facilitate lessons for students pertaining to our core values and our mission. This allows students to refresh their knowledge of and reflect on their actions as they practice courage, compassion, perseverance, respect and integrity.

"Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging test of geographic knowledge." - nationalgeographic.com
