DFJHS Students Help MMHS Marching Band!

The Maple Mountain High School marching band took second place in its division, making them the region champs! DFJHS has these five awesome students in MMHS' band!

They have gone from DFJHS to MMHS after school three days a week for 3-hour practices and then competed most Saturdays. It's a lot of work! Way to Go!

Our 7th Graders Get HANDS ON in Learning about Organs!

Our 7th Graders Get HANDS ON in Learning about Organs!

7th Grade science had the opportunity to interact with REAL ORGANS! The organs presented were: a heart, a pair of lungs, a trachea and a liver with a gallbladder. Pig organs are very similar to human organs. With organ shortages being the cause of 22 deaths everyday in the United States, this begs the question, "Would a xenograft (pig heart) be an option for YOU if you needed a heart transplant?" Students were excited, enthralled, troubled, amazed and thought their teachers were insane when they inflated the lungs to full size! In the end, we did not lose a single 7th grader!

Stand4Kind and Foreign Figures Hold VIRTUAL Concert/Assembly

Diamond Fork Jr High and Stand For Kind have developed quite a friendship over the last few years. We have had many guests come to our school to celebrate Kindness and share messages of hope, acceptance and love. 
Despite COVID this year, we wanted our students to have the chance to hear this important message, and hear some amazing music from DFJHS's favorite band--FOREIGN FIGURES!!
Thanks for spending some time with us performing, sharing your message, and answering a LOT of questions--even what color toothbrush you have...
