Mrs. Anderson's Classes Loves to Write

During the month of December, students in Mrs. Anderson's English and Creative Writing classes took on the Writer's Workout Challenge. To be a better writer, one must write. And write. And consistently write. To encourage the students to write, they were challenged to write for 20 minutes for 20 nights over a four week period. The appeal was that they could choose ANY topic to write on. All writing was above and beyond school work and none of their entries were required. Some wrote poems, song lyrics, narratives, and chapters to books they are in the process of writing! They were rewarded with a little extra credit and daily drawings.  Over 100 students participated throughout the 4 weeks, and 28 students completed the full 20 day challenge. These 28 students' names were entered into a drawing for bigger prizes like gift cards, journals, sketch books, paintings, and, of course, candy! Mostly, they were rewarded with a greater appreciation for prized, quiet, writing time and greater skill. One of the most beautiful things an English teacher can hear is: "You're right! I really can write. And I like it!"

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!
