Nearly 700 students in our school were able to attend "Diamondback Day" this morning. Students without any deficient grades (D or F) and ZERO tardies and unexcused absences were able to attend. We loaded the buses early and went to see a movie at the Payson theaters. We are so appreciative to Ms. Draper, Ms. Taylor, Ms. Parrott and others who helped make this day happen. It is a HUGE undertaking and it went off without a hitch! Thanks to our awesome students too for their hard work.

Utah Valley Student of the Week- Rachel Wasden

Mon, 10/02/2017 - 2:27pm

On paper, Rachel Wasden, a ninth-grader at Diamond Fork Jr. High School, has a 4.0 GPA, takes multiple honors classes and loves to work hard. For two years now, Rachel has been selected to help tutor math other students in other grades. She is part of the National Junior Honor Society and has been on the tennis team for the past several years, most recently being on the varsity second singles team. She maintains a creative photography account on Instagram @Rachel_joy_photos.

 

But honestly, Rachel’s strengths aren’t necessarily the types of things that are easy to list. She has a gift for seeing everyone as individuals to be loved and enjoyed, whether they be an infant, child, peer or adults. When the Wasdens moved from New Jersey four years ago, their neighbors took Rachel to dinner to say goodbye because even at 9 years old, she was a genuine friend to them. She looks for ways to help students and teachers and likes to lighten the mood with a quick sense of humor.

Mandy Young, a teacher at Diamond Fork Jr. High School in Spanish Fork, has been selected as the Daily Herald Educator of the Week.

Miss Young currently teaches seventh grade science, though she has taught ninth grade biology and earth systems in the past.

 

Miss Young is one of the advisers for the National Junior Honor Society and is the PTA teacher representative for her school.

“Welcome to the BEST class ever!” That’s what you will hear if you are lucky enough to be in Miss Young’s science class.

 

Miss Young really is amazing. She always has the best interests of her students in mind. Mandy comes early and stays late to Diamond Fork Jr. High. Miss Young always goes the extra mile. She is continually improving on her lesson plans and does her best to make each student in her classroom feel great about themselves. Not only can you find her happy smile and quick wit in her classroom, but she is always ready to lend a hand in the office, at school activities, and in the hallways. She is a blast to work with and Diamond Fork Jr. High is lucky to have her as a science superhero!
