How can we see just how immense our solar system is? Well, Miss Hanks’ Earth Systems class figured out a way. They built a scale model in the front foyer of the school and lined up the planets in relation to the sun. They used science and math to form the scale model from actual distances of those planets. The students were able to do and see for themselves the colossal size of our piece of the universe.

Last week DFJHS Agriculture teacher Mrs. Draper had some fun with her Veterinary Assistant class when they were able to learn more about horse care. Mrs. Draper brought two of her horses to school! The students were able to gain hands on experience with the horses as Mrs. Draper and our principal, Mr. Peterson gave them valuable information. Thanks, Mr. Peterson and Mrs. Draper!
The FFA (Future Farmers of America) at Diamond Fork is an agricultural class that leads students to a career path in farming and agriculture. Future Farmers of America was founded by a group of farmers in 1928, their original mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding the growing nation. Today they are still called Future Farmers of America, but the official name was changed to FFA in 1988. Today they have expanded to other areas in agriculture like biology, chemistry, veterinary, and engineering.
