In fourth grade, we have been learning all about soil. This week we made an edible soil profile. The students had a great time choosing which food best represented the bedrock, subsoil, topsoil, and humus. Although, I think they enjoyed eating their soil even more!

Kindergarteners had an exciting day celebrating Sock Day. They all spent the whole day wearing socks and participated in some fun activities. Each student measured their feet, wrote about them and read some books. All the students decided its way more fun to just wear socks and no shoes!

Larsen 1st graders had the opportunity to meet 2 Spanish Fork City firefighters and learn about fire safety. The classes learned to have a fire plan at their homes to keep safe, when to call 911 and they even got to tour through the fire truck. Each student was given a safety book to take home too. Thank you for keeping us safe fire fighters!

A sense of humor, ties, kindness, and being a student favorite. These are just a few of the qualities that describe Mr. Dennis Olsen, math teacher here at Diamond Fork. Mr. Olsen is such a deserving recipient of the Crystal Apple Award. He is a fantastic teacher, but he is an even better person. We are so fortunate to have him here at Diamond Fork, and seriously check out the ties, they are awesome!

Spanish Fork FFA gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees held in Sandy Utah. This year our chapter did a tree in memory of Levi Sampson who lost his life in an auto-pedestrian accident this summer. Students donated over 40 pairs of jeans to help with the decorations of the tree. In addition over 40 FFA members spent time making ornaments. There was an activity and classes that helped to put everything together. We would like to thank all of those who made the tree a success.
The officers delivered the tree Monday, November 29 to the South Towne Expo Center. All the donated trees were auctioned off with all the proceeds going to the Primary Children's Medical Center. This year SFHS FFA's tree was purchased by an Anonymous sponsor for $1050. It has been great to remember Levi and his spunky attitude. He always wanted everyone to do better and help someone each day. We encourage everyone to find something good that they can do each day. Do Good and Live for Levi.
