Students in the 8th and 9th grade sewing classes at Diamond Fork Junor High have been busy making monsters. These monsters are relatively tame, at least most of the time, and they make excellent gifts. They were finished just in time for Christmas, and are fully customizable with different arms, legs, and faces.
Every month at Diamond Fork Junior High two students from the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades are selected as students of the month. These students are nominated for their outstanding citizenship and hard work. Nominees are then voted on by the entire faculty. The students of the month for December are:
7th Grade: Abigail Jones and McKay Clegg
8th Grade: Krystalyn Lockwood and Josh Sales
9th Grade: Jentri Harris and Konnor Frisby
This month at Diamond Fork Junior High the English department is holding a Literary Competition. The task is simple, all students have to do is compose the opening sentence to an imaginary novel, and then email it to Ms. Brooke Anderson, an eighth grade English teacher. In the email, students should include their first and last name, grade, English teacher, and their opening sentence. Winners will be announced after Christmas Break.
Diamond Fork Junior High School has an excellent boys and girls basketball team. Ninth grades students can play on the team and eighth grade students can serve as team managers. To make it on the team students must attend three days of tryouts, and then coaches carefully select the specific girls and boys who are best qualified for the team.
