It's that time again! We will be holding our parent-teacher conferences this Thursday, February 15th from 3:30-8 PM. Teachers will be set up in both gymnasiums, we encourage all parents to come and visit with teachers about their students. We thank parents in advance for their support!
We had another great breakfast celebrating our February students of the month. Teachers from our Fine Arts department nominated students this month. Teachers talk about why they nominated a particular student, then a parent also gets to share good things about their student. It is such a neat experience to be able to recognize a few of our wonderful Diamondbacks. We appreciate all of the support we get from parents (the meeting is ALWAYS well attended) and from Mr. Buck and the service learning class. Nice work Diamondbacks!
Students in 8th and 9th grade social studies classes heard from Specialist Peters from the Idaho National Guard, Honor Guard, and Field Artillery member. He talked about respect for the flag, patriotism, and the US military. Specialist Peters is the husband of our 9th-grade social studies teacher, Mandy Peters.
Students have been sending Val-O-Grams to one another for only .50 cents! They go to Mr. Buck's room to sign up and pay, then the service learning classes deliver the val-o-grams all over the school to students. Parents can also do this for their students if they would like, just make payment in the front office. All the proceeds are being dontated to Primary Children's Hospital. The last day for Val-O-grams is Wednesday.
The Nebo School District Survey is available for parent input February 9- 25th. Please go to this link and give valuable feedback on our teachers, administrators, and school. https://neboschools.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a3Lrk9lpA9ORMRD
This week at DFJHS our PTA has been helping us celebrate our amazing teaching staff. Monday each teacher received a poster and students have been writing small "shout out" papers for each of them. It has been so fun to see the nice things students are saying about their hardworking teachers. Along with the shout outs the PTA has been providing snacks, breakfast, and even a soft serve ice cream bar! Thursday they will provide staff with lunch, followed by a popcorn bar and a free Redbox code on Friday.
This Impact evening will begin with a brief plenary session where President Matthew Holland and First Lady Paige Holland will share some of their final words on why girls and women should prepare to impact theircommunitiesthrough education, service, engagement, and leadership.
