Last week the National Junior Honor Society went on a field trip to Primary Children's Hospital and the State Capital. Students had made blankets which they were able to deliver to the patients of the hospital then were able to tour the capital. We have great students who are a part of NJHS and Mrs. Anderson is awesome as well.
In the spring our LIA class was in charge of our Make-a-Wish week which included a lot. We had a dance, we had an assembly, and we raised a lot of money for our wish child Ryver. Part of what was done was the making of a thousand paper cranes that we hung in the hall to honor her. Today our LIA students were able to deliver those cranes to Ryver at her home. It was a great day!
We celebrated all the good that Mrs. Olsen has done for our school last week. She is moving on to Mt. Nebo Jr High next year to do more great things. She has built an amazing library during her years here at Diamond Fork. It is a place where students come each and everyday to do amazing things. She is kind, considerate, and knows more about books than anyone we have ever met. Thank You Mrs. Olsen! We will miss you here at Diamond Fork and know that the students at Mt. Nebo are getting the best, good luck!

Celebrating our Students of the Month is a favorite day here at DFJHS. Lots of smiles and often times tears of joy are shed as we highlight the great kids that attend our school. Thanks to our amazing counselors and office staff for nominating students, and thanks to our parents for their support. We enjoyed hearing the great things these outstanding students do each day to make Diamond Fork a great place to be.

Our Latinos in Action class recently attended a conference at the Univeristy of Utah. Students are able to learn and interact with other students from across the state. Some of our students were able to perform a dance at the conference as well. You can watch the video of their performance on our school Facebook page. Thanks to Mr. Claybaugh for allowing the students this opportunity, they made Diamond Fork proud.
