Our DFJHS library is a pretty amazing place because we have Mrs. Olson, a pretty amazing librarian! Recently students created this self-standing KEVA Plank bridge that spanned acroos an entrie room! It is great to have a place where student's creativity comes alive. Not only are there cool things to do, but it is a great library full of great books, the evidence for that is that over 1,000 books have already been checked out this school year, we love to read! Thanks Mrs. Olson!!
Parents and students interested in the Especially for Athletes program stayed after school today to hear the founder of the program explain the positive impact that student athletes as well as all students involved in extra-curricular activities can make at their schools. "Eyes Up - Do the Work" is the motto meaning seek out poeple who might need your help and then being willing to do something about it!
The first "Student of the Month" breakfast was held today at Diamond Fork as 13 students were recognized for being amazing kids and outstanding students. English teachers nominated students and talked about why they chose each student. Parents were also able to say a bit about their students, it was a great morning. Here is the list of students for the month of October:
9th Grade: Ben Berky, Nikolas Taylor, Katelyn Day, & Madison Rowe
8th Grade: Nathan Birch, Joshua Biesinger, Kaitlin Stubbs, Alyssa Orgill, & Tanna Marshall
Mrs. Neumiller is doing some awesome things with her Biology classes. They are looking at organisms that live in pond water under a micropscope. There were some pretty gnarly looking creatures her students saw. They were also examining cells they took from their own mouths, cool stuff!!
- We will be holding our first Parent-Teacher Conference of the school year this Thursday, September 27th from 3:30-8pm in both gyms. No reserved time to meet with teachers is necessary, teachers are at tables in the gyms, just walk up and talk with those you need to visit with. Please either print off your student’s schedule at home or pull it up on your phone when you arrive so you know who to see. Our counseling office will print off schedules for those who need one.
With the help of many hands, we have revamped and redcorated two of the portables into an expanded game room for E-Time. A big thank you to Mrs. Katie Garner, a Diamond Fork mom and professional artist for her "Game Time" mural! Another big thank you to our awesome Diamond Fork counselors who man the game room! Students can participate in board games, card games, basketball shoot, ping pong, air hockey, Fooz ball, and more.
Students can join the Diamond Fork Chime CHoir as an afternoon club. Students get a snack and then get to learn from the best! Ms. Scott is a member of the Bells on Temple Square Bell Choir. No experience, no music reading needed! See Ms. Scott in Room 1515 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
