Over the next few weeks Diamond Fork Junior High is holding its annual Sub for Santa program. For more than 10 years the students and staff of Diamond Fork have provided Christmas presents for many local needy children. 

Funds are being collected through donation jars located in every classroom, and all proceeds from this year's Christmas dance will be used to purchase these Sub for Santa gifts. In past years many essential clothing items were furnished through the program including shirts, shoes, pants, socks, and winter coats.

Girl's Basketball

The girl’s ninth grade basketball team at Diamond Fork recently held basketball tryouts and selected 12 team members.  The decision was very difficult.  For the last three years the Diamond Fork girl's basketball team has won the district championship.  Unfortunately, injuries constantly threaten the team’s potential.  Of course there are ways to prevent such injuries, but such precautions are not always practiced - just like children riding bikes who do not wear helmets or knee pads.

Upcoming Musical

Every year students at Diamond Fork Junior High School audition for the school musical. This year's school musical is “The Little Mermaid.”  Last year’s musical “Beauty and the Beast” was amazing, with excellent actors and props. It was a huge success with gigantic crowds attending every night. The musical was very similar to the movie, with all of the excitement and more - including some very funny moments.
