Nebo School District wants to showcase our Positive Energy and Kind employees. PEAK Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education. Math teacher here at Diamond Fork, Mr. Dennis Olsen was the recipient of that award for the month of September. Here are a few things that our faculty said about Mr. Olsen, he is a fantastic educator and an even better person, congrats Mr. Olsen.

“Dennis is always lending a helping hand and ready to answer math questions. He is kind to everyone. Yesterday he helped me by putting things in my car. He often holds the door for students and teachers in the morning. Dennis is always in the hall during class breaks and is always willing to help students and teachers.” Ellen-Anita Olson

“Dennis always goes out of his way to make everyone feel special. He has true concern for students and teachers alike. A genuinely kind person!” James Clark

“Dennis certainly is one of the best people I’ve been able to work with! We can’t say enough good about him. He always makes his acts of kindness seem like no big deal.” He’s scraped off my windshield, carried things to my room for me, and let me borrow things from his classroom. He is so genuine and seems happy to help. I have also appreciated his thoughtful cookies and notes from time to time. Dennis is definitely a Diamond Fork Hero of the day, week, month... year.” Kelly Cole Taylor

“Dennis is one of the finest people I've ever met. When his name comes up in class, there is an instant positive response from students - he builds up everyone he's around. I have never found anyone (student, teacher, parent, or administrator) who didn't love Mr. Olsen. He shows the rest of us what's possible. Thank you Dennis.” Scott Buck

“Mr. Olsen truly is one of the kindest and most positive people I know. And I don't think there is a parent, student, teacher, or administrator that doesn't adore him.” Mandy Young

“Mr. Olsen is a great "Hall Buddy" and neighbor. He was one of the first people to make me feel welcome at Diamond Fork Jr. His cookies are a lifesaver!” Rebecca Antares

“Definitely the essence of a gentleman!!” Susane Anderson

“Dennis embodies what true gentlemen should be. He is always thoughtful. But, beware, when I least expect it, he will say something, and I giggle. I love that!”

“Thank you Dennis for all you do for our students and for us at DFJHS. You are AMAZING!” Leslie Parrott

“Dennis brought all my stuff home for me the day I had to do a long run training and run home from work. He is always smiling and owns the best ties in the world!” Maria Lewis

“I love Dennis! He is always positive. Seriously, no matter the topic, lunch detention, math lab, naughty kids, he is positive! He never asks for anything but he wants others to receive. His smile and wit brighten many of my days!” Brenda Burr

“Perhaps the kindest person I’ve ever met, after my mother.” Rhet Rowley

The Jazz Bear Visits DFJHS!

Diamond Fork Junior High School News - Wed, 09/12/2018 - 11:16am

(more pictures available)

"The Strength of the Team is the Team" is our motto this year at Diamon Fork. We adopted the idea from the Utah Jazz as they shared it with fans across the state last spring during their playoff run. The Jazz organization was so thrilled that we follow the motto they sent the Jazz Bear to us for an awesome assembly. We had cheerleaders, our choir was fantastic, and the Jazz Bear handed out t-shirts and filled the air with silly string and confetti. It was a great day here at Diamond Fork! A big shout out to the tech crew for helping get the stage set up, thanks.

Fall Captains Academy was a big hit once again. 

Our fantastic Captains, George Heywood, Sarah Seely, and Sydnie Smith, were chosen by their coaches and team mates and represented our school well. 

At the conference, they heard excellent messages from local High school principals Bart Peery and Everett Kelepolo.  The messages on sportsmanship and leadership were great reminders for everyone. 

What an awesome opportunity for these student athletes to learn!  Now they’ll be able to share their knowledge with their team mates!

Hello Parents!

We extend a warm welcome to students, parents, and families of Sierra Bonita Elementary, Home of the Bears. We look forward to working with each member of our school community to achieve our school mission statement:

In partnership with parents and community, our mission at Sierra Bonita Elementary is to create high levels of learning for every student, celebrate individual differences and abilities, and inspire responsible citizenship and lifelong success.

During this upcoming school year it is our commitment each day to emphasize our theme “HERO Within” with our students. As parents, “HERO Within” stands for the great work you do to help your child learn and we appreciate all you do for students and our school.  Thank you for your support for Sierra Bonita Elementary!


School Picture Day

Picture day is coming up on September 14th, so be ready to put on your best smile!

School Community Council Elections

Student Education Plan (SEP) Conferences and Sign-Ups

We are excited to share that we will be using Sign-Up Genius, an online tool for creating and managing group sign up lists, to sign up for our September 27th and November 29th SEP conferences. (Our February 28th Student Led Conferences will be according to a different schedule). 

On Friday, September 14th, a message will be sent to your email from the school through Parentlink that will provide a link and information on how to sign up using Sign-Up Genius. If you have any questions, please contact the school at 801-798-4480. Thank you!


Pick-Up Zone & Parking

We appreciate the efforts of all parents and staff members in providing for the safety of students in our drop-off and pick up zones. Please help us to ensure that all students are accompanied by an adult when crossing through the pick-up zone.  Also, thank you for reserving our handicapped parking spaces for those who have need for these parking stalls. We remind you to please park in a parking stall if you need to leave your vehicles to come inside the school.  This allows the flow of the drop-off and pick-up areas to be maintained and keeps vehicles moving forward and not needing to back up!  We have great appreciation for everyone’s efforts to increase safety in our parking lots and drop off and pick-up zones before and after school.



Note: By law, bus zones cannot be used as drop off and pick up zones even if there are no buses present!


School Checkout Procedures

Please follow the following procedures when you need to check a student out from school before the end-of-school bell rings.  First, share with an office secretary that an early checkout is necessary, second, fill out information and sign name on the checkout sheet located in the office area, and third, wait in the office area until your student arrives in the office. Thank you.


End of School Day Checkout

We ask for your help in reducing the number of interruptions classes could experience at the end of the school day due to students being checked out early.  Our teachers are instructing right up to the end of each day, and it is increasingly difficult for them and the class when students are checked out early. Unless it is an emergency, we ask that students not be checked out during the last 15 minutes of the day.  This practice helped last year and will continue to help teachers and students to make the most of every minute of the day.


Students Walking, Riding Bicycles/Scooters & Crosswalks

We have many students who are walking and riding bicycles/scooters to school each day. We have provided training for students to use sidewalks and to follow the instructions of adult supervisors and our crossing guards. We have instructed students to use the crosswalk in front of the school when crossing 1800 East. Faculty members will serve as crossing guards at this crosswalk. We ask that all parents please instruct their children on these and other safety measures to better ensure that students safely make their way to and from school each day.


Spirit Day

We have school spirit at Sierra Bonita, and have designated each Friday as our School Spirit Day. We have nice school shirts and encourage children to wear their school shirts (this year’s and past years’ shirts) or school colors (blue and maroon) on Fridays.  We have a lot to be proud of at Sierra Bonita and want to do all we can to build school pride.
