SAGE Testing Begins Monday April 16th

Diamond Fork Junior High School News - Fri, 04/13/2018 - 3:14pm

As we begin our end of year testing the counseling office has put together a list of tips to help our students and test time go smoothly:

  • Get a Good Night's Sleep-This gives your brain time to recharge and remember what you've learned.
  • Eat a good, light breakfast-This will help with energy and concentration, also drink lots of WATER!
  • Stay Calm-When you sit down to do your exam, remember to relax and slow your breathing.
  • Don't Rush-Work through the exam at a comfortable pace and read each question more than once if needed.
  • Trust Yourself-Be postive and believe in yourself, you can do this!

Students in Mr. Whiting’s science class watched as he dissected squids to learn about the different cool adaptations and traits that the octopus has. They also learned some of the anatomy of the octopus. Mr. Whiting showed students some of the external anatomy, like the eyes, and he told us about the chromatophores which are things on the skin that make it so the squid can camouflage. Then he cut the squid open with some suture scissors. He showed students things like the gills, ink sack, and the squid pen which gives support to the squid. It was interesting and fun.

Second Grade had an opportunity to visit the Paleontology Museum, The Bean Museum and Farm Field Days this week. They learned about animals from long ago as well as animals that live now. At Farm Field Days they were able to learn about animals and agriculture.  This was a very informative field trip and we want to thank BYU Bean Museum for letting us visit. We would also like to thank USU, Utah County 4-H, FFA and Harward Farms for putting on Farm Field Days.
