Students at Diamond Fork went to their first Team Time today! Team Time serves as an advisory period where 9th grade students mentor 7th and 8th grade students. Teams will share team building acitvities and character building activities throughout the year!
Mrs. Olson has started her famous early Hour of Computer Coding in the Diamond Fork Junior High library on M, W, and F from 7:00am to 7:55am. Students will learn creative computer coding. All students are welcome.
Diamond Fork Jr High is getting a brand new after school club, our first chime choir! Chime choir consists of hand chimes that are tuned to a specific pitch. Each ringer is assigned two notes and we learn how to play the right notes at the right time. Put it all together and you get beautiful music. Seems simple, right? Not so fast. Each ringer must work with the group as a whole in order for it to work. Music experience is helpful, but not necessary- you will learn what you do not already know! Rehearsal will be held Tuesdays after school. If there is enough interest, a second day will be added. Ms. Scott will be leading the choir and she is a member of the Bell Choir on Temple Square.
Region 8 has changed ticket prices to $5.00 for all adults, students and children. Senior Citizens and children 5 and under are free of charge.
Family passes can be purchased for $20.00 ( maxiumum of 6 immediate family member who reside together and must arrive at the game together)
Club rush will be held during lunch in the courtyard Thursday 9/13- Friday 9/14. If you would like to form a group please see Mr. Beardall in the front office for an application by Tuesday 9/4.

Our 7th grade day and first day of school were both a success! We are excited that this year is off to a great start! Every Wednesday I will send out a school newsletter that will provide information about upcoming events, important reminders, and a link to your student’s SIS account as well as his/her lunch account balance. In this week’s newsletter, I am including some important reminders for parents and students as we start off this school year. Feel free to email me or call the school with any questions (801-465-6040).
STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICKUP
The bus lanes are located in front of the school to the east. Please keep these lanes clear for the buses. The student pick up and drop off lane is located on the north side of the school.
STUDENT DRESS CODE
With all of our new students we have had many new inquiries into school dress codes and standards. Recently, Nebo School District did approve hats to be worn in secondary schools. The policy states “Students in secondary schools may wear hats and other head coverings. Notwithstanding the foregoing, hats and head coverings may not be worn in either elementary or secondary schools if doing so disrupts the educational environment, poses a danger to self or others, or limits the ability of others to identify the student.”
Please also note that clothing must be modest. Modesty includes covering shoulders, midriff, back, underwear, and cleavage. Inappropriately short, tight, or revealing clothing is prohibited. Skirts, dresses, and shorts must be at least mid-thigh length when the student is sitting. Pants or jeans with holes in them must not show skin above mid-thigh. Jeans with holes above mid-thigh must have holes covered.
