Paper Cranes for Ryver

Mrs. Peters and Mr. Mohler's classes recently took on a huge project. As part of our "Wish Week" students folded 1,000 paper cranes for our wish child Ryver. In Japan during WWII a little girl named Sadako Sasaki got Leukemia from the dropping of the bombs on Nagasaki, she was 12. Sadako heard that if you made 1,000 paper cranes the God's would grant you a wish. Sadako wished to be well and was able to make about 600 cranes before she realized she was going die before completing the 1,000. Instead of wishing to be well, she changed her wish for peace.

We love our Student of the Month breakfast. It is such a great experience to listen to teachers and parents share wonderful things about students. We recognized thirteen amazing students this morning as we gathered in our library. The Fine Arts department nominated students as well as our Character Ed class. Thanks to the following students for going above and beyond what is expected. Thanks to the parents for raising such awesome kids and sending them to Diamond Fork.

Art Class Murals

Here are some photos of the class murals students created in Art. The first is supposed to be like stained glass. We love seeing the colorful reflections on the walls and floor when the sun is shining through the window. Students were given one small piece of a famous artwork and were instructed to recreate the lines they saw. They did not know what artwork they were creating, what pieces were going to be next to them or what colors to color (except in the Great Wave). It's fun seeing them all assembled.

Students Express Gratitude for Police Officers at Make-A-Wish Assembly.

Two police officers from the canine training unit demonstrated the use of police dogs today at the Make-A-Wish Assembly. Mr. Mohler's father, Cory Wride, was killed in the line of duty five years ago this week. His partner who was also shot but survived was one of the police officers who came today. To honor their bravery and thank them for their service, the students gave the police officers a standing ovation.
