Students were able to tour the Wishing Place which is the home to Make-A-Wish Utah. The building is unique to Utah. Designed by and for children, the Wishing Place includes a castle where children with life-threateing illness can go with their families to insert the magic key, watch the waterfall and beautiful colors appear, and place their wish in the special wish holder. The ceiling is covered with stars representing the wishes granted in Utah and the wall covered with pictures and stories of the children who have been blessed by the power of a wish!
Students at Diamond Fork were treated to a Hall of Fame star cookie Tuesday at the end of school. Those students with 4.0 GPA's, High Honors and Honors students, as well as students will perfect attendance were recognized for their hard work and dedication. A number of students earned this reward, way to go Diamondbacks!
- It is time for the annual PTA March Madness Fundraiser. We are asking each parent to donate $10.00 per student or any amount you are willing. This is our only fundraiser and we have chosen this way to eliminate time consuming, door-to-door sales. We hope you see the benefit in this simplified version of a fundraiser. This year we have added a little basketball fun into the week by having some basketball challenges for the students to try their hand at. This will be held during lunchtime, both Wednesday and Thursday in the lunchroom.
Enrichment activities included Just Dance, stress management, baking, card games, origami, karaoke, and more! 9th grade students got to leave for lunch five minutes early as the grade with the fewest deficiencies. Not one 9th grade student failed a class last term! Way to go 9th grade leaders!
