Five On Friday

Diamond Fork Junior High recognizes excellent student attendance with "Diamondback Five On Friday."  This new program encourages students to come to class on-time everyday, and rewards those who do by entering them into a weekly drawing for $5 if their attendance is perfect when their name is drawn.

March's Five On Friday winners are Hayden Pierce, Mariah Burnham, Jonathan Candia, Julianna Keele, Jaden Peer, Skyler Peterson, Hannah Seamons, Avery Curtis, Braxton Ferguson, and Ezrie Pierce.  Congratulations to March's Five On Friday winners!

At Diamond Fork Junior High School the National Junior Honor Society is making friendship bracelets to sell and raise money for a Veteran’s nursing home being built in Payson to provide services to Veterans and their spouses.

Glen Bradford, past commander of the American Legion, is in charge of fundraising efforts for the Veteran’s home.  He came to the National Junior Honor Society and asked for their help in raising money for the home. All of the money raised will go toward completing the home and furnishing the rooms to make it comfortable for Veterans to live.
