In Biology, we’ve been learning about water. We learned that water is the universal solvent. A solvent is a liquid that a substance dissolves in. To prove this point we conducted an experiment. On lab day, we conducted our first one. We poured 10 mL of water into four different test tubes. Next, we added either sodium chloride (also known as table salt), sugar, baking soda, or epsom salts. We set a timer and after one minute, we saw how much the substance had dissolved by comparing it to a test tube that had the same amount of the substance in it.
Dear Diamond Fork Parents,
In very few words, respect is the condition of being esteemed or honored. One of our five core values at DFJHS is respect. We can think highly of a person because of their positive qualities. We can have high regard for another person’s choices or decisions. Additionally, we can and should respect ourselves.
Wrestling season is well under way and the boys have been practicing hard for their matches. The first two matches against SFJHS and SaJHS were a team loss, but many of the wrestlers did a great job in their individual matches. Colton Bean, Nate Hausbrow, Hyrum Froerer, Hayden Webster and Grady Nelson went away with wins against SaJHS last night.
The next match will be at home against MNJHS on December 10th at 3:30pm. Let's all support our wrestlers for all of their hard work!
Sewing is a useful and practical life skill. Last month the sewing classes worked on several projects as they learned stitchery methods. Many students are even working on additional projects to give as Christmas gifts this season. Mrs. Gardner (Castillo) guides students through each step of the process to create fun and innovative designs.
The photos display some of the great talent and skills learned in class. Good job, students!
In our season opener against Mt. Nebo JHS, our Diamondbacks and Lady Diamondbacks grabbed the lead quickly and maintained it thoughout the games. While MNJHS played hard throughout the games and pushed their team, the Diamondbacks sustained a team effort throughout and won!
Mr. Claybaugh's class celebrated "El Dia de los Muertos" or Day of the Dead by coloring face masks and skulls that represented what the day means. Afterwards, they were hung in the hall.
We also watched informational videos that Senor Claybaugh showed in class. It taught us of the many traditions that Hispanics celebrate this day. They usually have a lot of food and a dance/parade.
Dear Diamond Fork Parents,
Many of us can recall a teacher or other educator throughout our academic career who gave us a gift of knowledge. Some teachers even shared with us tidbits of wisdom on other topics, as well. Often, we may not even remember the academic concept teachers taught us, but we remember how they made us feel. Teachers have a way of validating and frequently helping students to explore or find their talents, skills, abilities and at times, their very self-worth.
"She asked me, 'Son, when I grow old, will you buy me a house of gold?'"
Check out the short video at http://youtu.be/8wf1D73KOEk to see some of our students singing a cover of "House of Gold" by twenty one pilots.
