During the month of December, students in Mrs. Anderson's English and Creative Writing classes took on the Writer's Workout Challenge. To be a better writer, one must write. And write. And consistently write. To encourage the students to write, they were challenged to write for 20 minutes for 20 nights over a four week period. The appeal was that they could choose ANY topic to write on. All writing was above and beyond school work and none of their entries were required. Some wrote poems, song lyrics, narratives, and chapters to books they are in the process of writing!
On Wednesday January 10th the district wrestling finals were held at Diamond Fork. All seven schools from Nebo School District spent the whole day competing for indivudual and team victories. We had a great number of top 4 finishers with an impressive 1st place finish by Evan Prokopiw in the 120 lbs weight class, with Josh Beisinger finishing 3rd and Nathan Birch placing 4th.
- We are pleased to recognize our Diamond Fork “December Students of the Month”. These students were selected by their teachers and peers as those who not only excel academically, but who are examples of good character and kindness. These students were honored this morning at a breakfast with their parents and those who nominated them. We are so appreciative of these and the many others like them who work hard and make Diamond Fork a great place.
