Ryan Flake, an eighth-grade student at Spanish Fork Jr. High, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee on December 15, 2017, and a chance at a $50,000 college scholarship.  The school-level Bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 30th annual National Geographic Bee.  In order to participate in the Bee, eighth graders had to pass a written test with a high qualifying score.  There were only 30 seats available for the entire eighth grade so being able to participate is an accomplishment in and of itself.  The following students qualified and participated in the school competition:

Connor Gates, Laycee Bills, Carter Cook, Emmie Olson, McKay Shaffer, Gwen Beagley, Sydney Chipman, Jones Lewis, Questin Francis, Brian Gunyan, Wyatt Hughes-Millman, Brenner Shepherd, Natalie Olsen, Zac Dart, Samuel Clements, Ellie Maughan, Trevor Stephens, Kate Jones, Xander Lacefield, Kelsey Mansfield, Cole Gwilliam, Andrew Porter, Ryan Flake, Ashton Szalkowski, and Kade Baum

Ryan Flake finished the competition in First Place with Wyatt Hughes-Millman finishing in Second Place and Sydney Chipman finishing in Third Place.  Congratulations to our school finalists! 

 School winners around the country, including Ryan, will now take a written test to be eligible to compete in the state Geographic Bee on April 6, 2018.  State winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to participate in the National Geographic Bee and a chance for a $50,000 scholarship.

The National Honor Society, Key Club, and STAR Clubs worked together to bring the spirit of Christmas to many in our community who so faithfully serve us.  They also wanted to bring a some joy to little ones on Christmas morning.  

Students got together and frosted cookies (hundreds of cookies) and made dozens of dog toys. The cookies were distributed to staff and faculty members at SFHS to thank them for their service and wish them a Merry Christmas. Cookies were also delivered to various community service organizations (Police and Fire Department, etc.). The many dog toys made at the activity were donated to the local animal shelter and to top it off, students brought toys for a toy drive which were then donated to the United Way. All club members want to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Service is FUN!

Two of our outstanding employees were recognized yesterday as the classified employee's of the year here at Diamond Fork. Both of these wonderful ladies are amazing individuals and are part of why Diamond Fork is such a fantastic place. 

  • Melanie Wilde is the front office secretary and is responsible for making the school run as smoothly as it does each and every day. She answers hundreds of phone calls, helps students and teachers, and does so much more. We are so fortunate to have Mrs. Wilde here at Diamond Fork and she is very deserving of this recognition.
  • Anna Hanson does so much for our students one title wouldn't fit her. We can count on Anna to do whatever is asked of her and she will do it with a smile on her face. She has a wonderful relationship with each and every student that she works with and truly cares about students. 

Thank You Anna and Melanie!

Principal Moment

Today is the first day back from Christmas Break; sounds like most had a Merry Christmas.  Legos were a hot item, so were Hover Boards, hatchimals, RC cars, drones, smart watches, and the flu.     

This morning, most kids said they were glad to be back but there were some who were “kinda yes and kinda no.”

I asked some what their New Year’s resolutions are.  Kid’s resolutions don’t change much from year to year: “I want to get better at times tables.” “I’m not going to fight with my brother.” “I will be a better reader.” “I want a new puppy.”  I said, “Uh….that really isn’t a resolution, it’s a wish. A resolution is something you want to improve in or change.”  He then said: “I want to change the way my mom feels about having a new puppy.”  Clever boy!  It’s good to be back!

The third session of after-school clubs will begin on Monday, January 8th and go until Friday, March 2nd.  The fees for clubs will be $12 this year.  Please fill out the registration forms if you haven’t completed one this school year and make the payment in the office by Friday, January 5th.

Recess Guidance

Cool weather is upon us.  As you know, poor air quality is common during Utah winters and affects health.  Riverview monitors air quality from: http://air.utah.gov/.  We follow the Utah recess guide:  http://health.utah.gov/asthma/pdfs/airquality/recessguidance.pdf

During the cold months we will check air quality levels in the morning.  Students will remain inside when air quality reaches high levels on the air quality index.  If the air quality is good ALL students will be sent outside for recess.  Please make sure your child is coming to school with outdoor clothing during the cold weather months.
