What a fantastic assembly! Teachers ate Wasabi, kissed pigs and chickens, had their make up done by blindfolded students, held dance-offs, ate worms, and much more. The best part was having our Make-A-Wish student here at school to be recognized by the students. She was the hit of it all and we are thrilled to have been a part of her wish coming true! It is great to be a Diamondback!
The school Make-A-Wish Ball was a huge success last night! Thanks to Mr. Claybaugh and all those who helped in making these last two weeks so amazing as we have raised money for Make-A-Wish. Our goal to begin was to earn $1000, we surpassed that goal by a long way! Thanks to the generosity of our students and community DFJHS raised $2,089.19! THANK YOU to all who were kind and donated. We are excited for our Make-A-Wish assembly coming up on Monday, April 23rd at 8 AM.

Mrs. Olson, our wonderful librarian taught a "Book Tasting" lesson to Mrs. Anderson's Novel's and Literature class last week. Students were to find 3 books from 5 different genres that sounded interesting to them. Once students learned a bit more about the books they chose they were able to taste some cookies and soda. It was a great way to learn more about some new books!
