Ms. Dekker - 2nd Grade Teacher

Rees Elementary News - Tue, 04/18/2017 - 2:11pm

This is my fifteenth year teaching. I have been at Rees since the new school was built.  I have taught first through third grades and second grade is my favorite.  I am the oldest of 8 kids and grew up in Anaheim, California.  I love being an aunt and spoiling my niece and nephews.  I love to dance, take pictures, watch movings, look at the sky, bake cookies, and laugh with my family.


I like burgundy, but I don’t like tan.

I like pizza, but I don’t like lima beans.

I like ice skating and archery, but I don’t like WWE Wrestling.

I like strawberries, but I don’t like strawberry rhubarb pie.

I like dolphins, but I don’t like mosquitoes.

The best part about my job is working with awesome people and making learning fun for kids!

Brockbank Bulletin

Brockbank Elementary News - Tue, 04/18/2017 - 11:42am

Hello, Brockbank Families!

Thank you all for the wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week!  It was such a great week and we appreciate the PTA and especially Brittany Bartold, for all she did to make this such a special week for our teachers and staff!

This time of year we are getting ready for our year-end testing.  Please make sure your child is early to school with a good breakfast and ready to go!  We also ask you to encourage your child to do his/her best. We realize that testing can bring stress to our students.  Please discuss ways in which your child can pause, take a breath, and relax when taking tests.  Please know that we have and are still working with students so they feel calm when taking tests.  We have also had trainings on test taking with the SAGE program.

We want to wish the best of luck to our students that will be attending the State Debate Meet on Friday!  The following students will be representing Brockbank, and we are so proud of them.  They are:  Peyton Thorpe, Seth Argyle, Emmalyse Beecher, Aeris Eastland, Valeria Marquez, George Heywood, Angel Garcia, Kynslie Farr, Rio Ochoa, and Isaac Bryson!

Track Meets: Beginning April 25th, and including the following four weeks, we will be having our school track meets for 3rd-6th grades, at the Spanish Fork football field, and the Super Star Track Meet, for Ms. Jensen’s class, at Maple Mountain High football field.  Please make sure of the following things:

Your child is dressed for any kind of weather.   

Your child knows if he/she will be eating school or home lunch. 

Your child has sun screen and water.

We will be providing a sun tent for shade at Spanish Fork.

Parents, you are welcome to come to the field and support your child.  At Spanish Fork you may sit on the field, but please make sure you are respectful of the participants running and that you stay off the track. At Maple Mountain High you are welcome to sit in the bleachers.

This summer there are many opportunities for your child to take some fun ARTS classes.  Your child will be bringing a note home with some of these activities, and there are also flyers posted in the school windows that tell about each class offered! 

Thanks for the many things that you do that help our school run so smoothly!  We have a great school and the students here are the best!

Mrs. Nelson

NJHS Collecting "S" Donations for Refugees

Diamond Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 04/18/2017 - 9:27am

The National Jr. Honor Society is asking for your help.  As many of you know, there are tens of thousands of refugees fleeing from countries where they are mistreated by their own governments. These people need our help with many of the basic necessities of life.  We are going to be collecting items for the next 5 days.  There is a collection box in the front office and one in Mrs. V. Gardner's room.  We are asking for items that start with the letter "S."  The refugees need super spectacular supplies such as gently used shoes, skirts, and sweatshirts as well as socks, soap (hand, dish, laundry), and school supplies (pencils, notebooks, crayons, markers).  Please help with a simple "S" donation.  It will mean a lot! Donations will be accepted until Friday, April 21.
