Late Tuesday evening Mrs. Burr sent out a message to our students and parents, "Families displaced by the fires need our help, bring items to school Wednesday morning to be donated to families and volunteer firefighers." The response was amazing! With such a short amount of time to bring items in we still had enough items to fill two trucks full. Thanks for your amazing support, we live in a wonderful community.
Nebo School District wants to showcase our Positive Energy and Kind employees. PEAK Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education. Math teacher here at Diamond Fork, Mr. Dennis Olsen was the recipient of that award for the month of September. Here are a few things that our faculty said about Mr. Olsen, he is a fantastic educator and an even better person, congrats Mr. Olsen.
"The Strength of the Team is the Team" is our motto this year at Diamon Fork. We adopted the idea from the Utah Jazz as they shared it with fans across the state last spring during their playoff run. The Jazz organization was so thrilled that we follow the motto they sent the Jazz Bear to us for an awesome assembly. We had cheerleaders, our choir was fantastic, and the Jazz Bear handed out t-shirts and filled the air with silly string and confetti. It was a great day here at Diamond Fork! A big shout out to the tech crew for helping get the stage set up, thanks.
