Lobo Update 9/17/18

Spanish Fork Junior High School News - Mon, 09/17/2018 - 7:13pm

Parents, Students, and Friends - 


Striving to live The Lobo Way takes everyday effort, look for ways this week to cultivate your love of learning. This is part of LEARNING TO LEARN WITH PASSION. Teachers and students, take notice of ideas and topics in classes that give you an “A-HA” moment. This is the moment when you “get it”, you have a better understanding of what is being taught. Come to the office and share your experience with Mr. Christensen, Mrs. LeMmon, or Mr. Mortensen for a small treat! 


If your student received a Lobo T-shirt that is too large for them, have them bring the shirt to school and trade for  XS and S sizes.

Also, shirts are available for siblings and parents on a first come, first serve basis at $5 per shirt. We have XS, S, L, XL and a few 2XL. See the finance office. 


MONDAY is Card Making Club

TUESDAY your choice of Chess Club or Dungeons & Dragons Club

WEDNESDAY your choice of German Club or STEM Club: Coding and Robotics

THURSDAY your choice of Improv Club or Magic the Gathering Club

FRIDAY is Meditation Club

Pick up an application form in the office or online at http://sfjhs.nebo.edu/content/nebo-afterschool-clubs. Clubs are free!

Meet in the Lobo Den after school.  Clubs end at 4:15 pm. You can get registration forms in the front office.

Riverview Elementary Weekly Newsletter

Riverview Elementary News - Thu, 09/13/2018 - 12:27pm

Principal Moment

We all hit that point where we can’t figure out exactly what we really want to do with our lives.  My niece is at that stage in her life.  She recently told me she thinks she has definitely made up her mind…she wants to be a teacher.  A smile spread across my face when she told me what she is studying…”I’m thinking of going into teaching.”  It warms me up inside.  She wants to teach the little ones, maybe first or second.  Or maybe third.  She is not really sure.  Definitely the little ones.  Just like me.  She asked me why I decided to teach elementary.  I told her it is because they can’t drive yet.  I wanted to find a parking space.

Heads Up – ‘Did You Knows’ for Parents

Are you a new parent to Riverview Elementary?  Do you know what dismissal time looks like?  We need your help to keep the school and your children safe. EVERY child’s safety is important to us. It remains our highest priority to ensure that students enter and exit cars in a safe and organized way. We ask everyone to correctly follow our pick-up and drop-off procedures. Failure to do so creates chaos, frustration and unsafe conditions. Each family should discuss these loading and walking procedures. Thank you for your continuing support in making Riverview a safe environment for all.

General Precautions:

  • Be your child’s best example. Please be courteous and follow all safety guidelines at all times.
  • No arrivals prior to 8:00; front doors will be locked until 8:00 AM
  • Please DO NOT STOP in the left lanes of the loading zones. This is a very dangerous location in our parking lot.  No students permitted in parking lot without an accompanying adult.
  • Use crosswalks to cross streets and loading zone lanes.
  • Students are not to ride bikes on school sidewalks or crosswalks. 
  • Students are to use the yellow walking/bike path that is painted around the perimeter of the West Parking lot by the Kindergarten playground when leaving school at the end of the school day.  Students may not ride bikes or walk through the parking lot. 
  • Follow all directions from school safety personnel. They can see potential problems you may not.
  • Students are to be picked-up promptly at dismissal; 2:15 on Mondays, 3:00 Tuesday – Friday.

Dropping Off:

  • Pull your car as far forward into the loading zone as traffic allows. Drivers may drop-off students along entire length of Loading Zone.
  • Students can unload from PASSENGER SIDE of vehicle only. The driver should remain in the vehicle at all times and all driver side doors are to remain closed. No trunk unloading allowed in this zone.
  • Keep pulling forward and fill in all gaps in Loading Zone Lane.
  • Have all school materials including backpack and lunch ready before student exits vehicle.
  • Once your student has exited your vehicle you may exit the parking lot via the bypass lane to the driver’s left. This lane is for driving only — no loading, unloading or stopping at any time.

Picking up from School:

  • Pull your car as far forward into the loading zone as traffic allows. Student pick-up is available from Loading Zone Lane only.
  • Once your child has entered your car on passenger side of vehicle, please exit parking lot via bypass lane to driver’s left. This lane is for driving only — no loading, unloading or stopping at any time.

Mr. Olsen Receives NEBO PEAK Award

Diamond Fork Junior High School News - Thu, 09/13/2018 - 8:33am
(more pictures available)

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
