Leadership is becoming more prominent each day at Park Elementary.  It’s important for students to learn leadership skills now, especially when it applies to academics.  That is exactly what our Literature Leaders experience as they work to promote reading in the school.  Students at Park have the opportunity to find certain books in the library, read them, and report to a Literature Leader about the book they read.  And even more impressive, students discuss the Habits the characters used or did not use in the story.  This has been engaging for all students as they gain a love for reading.  Thanks Literature Leaders!

Excellent game! The teachers had the edge but the 6th graders gave them a run or 17 for their money. The All-stars made a great showing in the last inning—had Mr. Johnson not taken out Mrs. Moxon with a hard line drive to 3rd the 6th grades may have taken the lead.

The PTA and the student council joined together to put on a safety assembly for our students.  With school coming to an end and summer break fast approaching it is good to review some safety tips.  They reviewed such things as bicycle safety, crossing the street safely, wearing the proper clothing,  and stranger and pet danger.  Officer Warner, from the Spanish Fork Police Department talked with students and encouraged them to follow these safety guidelines and to wear helmets when they ride their bikes or scooters.  Each student was sent home with a safety pledge to be signed by them and their parents.  If they are turned in they will be put in for a drawing for a helmet.  The Utah County Department of Health donated 100 new helmets to our school.  We want all of our East Meadows students to have a FUN and SAFE summer break.

On May 6th Diamond Fork Junior High School's National Junior Honors Society held its induction meeting for the new inductees and their parents at 5 pm in the library. Honors Society is a great experience and all the new inductees are excited to take part in this organization over their 9th grade year.

In order to try out for the National Junior Honors Society, students filled out a sheet stating the accomplishments, service, and leadership positions they participated in during their seventh and eighth grade years. They then explained why they would like to be in the National Junior Honors Society and signed their forms, and turned it all in along with a parent signature as well.

Inductees also signed up to bring supplies for a service project. They made hygiene kits for the people in Peru, which included a hand towel, a mini shampoo and sanitizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a comb. They brought all their supplies and assembled these kits during the meeting.

Honors Society is a wonderful program and we are all proud of the newest members of our 2014-2015 DFJHS National Junior Honors Society!
