First Deaf Player in the NBA Kicks Off DF Hero Theme!

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. 

New Student Party


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.

Hope For Houston

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!
