Mr. Sorensen and his wife, Andrea, had a little baby girl on Friday. Little Wren Sorensen joins a sweet big brother and sister who already adore her!
Lance Allred was the guest speaker of our kick off hero theme assembly for the year. Mr. Allred, after numerous setbacks, ended up playing for Cleveland in the NBA. He spoke to the students about perseverance, integrity, getting out of your comfort zone, compassion, and being the leader of your own life or the hero of your own life which leads to inspiring others to be heroes as well. Students and faculty alike were inspired by his message.
Our Nebo after school clubs will be starting soon. Please click on the "Nebo After School Program" tab at the top of our webpage, you will see a PDF "Fall 2017 Flyer" with a list of all the classes. It is very well organized and is a great opportunity for students to try something new!
Thanks to Mr. Claybaug, the Latinos In Action, and our Counselors (Mrs. Caceras, Mr. Gull & Mr. Mundinger) for welcoming our new students to Diamond Fork. This afternoon there was a large "get to know you" party, and pizza! Lots of fun was had by all those who attended and hopefully made new friends.
Diamond Fork Jr. High is having a Hope for Houston day tomorrow, Wednesday August 30th. Our students and faculty have been impacted and want to do something to help. Tomorrow we are asking anyone who would like to donate $1 to this cause. If any students would like to show their support they can wear their cowboy boots, hats, bolo ties, anything that a Texas cowboy would wear. The $1 donation and dress up is NOT MANDATORY. If students would like to participate they may, it is not a requirement. Thanks!
Congrats to Jasmin Flores, our first Fiiz Friday winner of the year. A student with perfect attendance and grades will be randomly selected each week and receive a complimentary $5 gift card to Fiiz drinks. Thanks to Jasmin for being so great and thanks to Fiiz for helping us reward our students.
