Thank you! If you have any questions, please call the school office.

Mrs. Olson Diamond Fork PEAK Winner (Positive Energy and Kind)

Diamond Fork Junior High School News - Tue, 11/07/2017 - 11:15am

Words cannot even begin to describe the best librarian in the world- but if they could it would be Ellen-Anita Olson at Diamond Fork. Reading nights and weekends, it is not an exaggeration to bet that Ellen-Anita has read ever young adult book in our library. She can personally recommend a book based on a student’s personality and reading preferences. Pre-ordering and deal seeking, she gets the next book in the series for our avid readers even before the bookstores. English teachers bring their students in for her engaging book talks and critiques of the latest new reads. Before school, E-Time and at lunch, the most popular student spot in our school is the library. Famous all across the state, visitors flock to Diamond Fork to view her makerspaces. Students are creating or using models, puzzles, button-making, circuit boards, robotics, etc. Her library makerspaces provide creative time for students to build prototypes, explore questions, fail and retry, bounce ideas off one another and build something together. STEM education is happening in our library! She is a frequent guest speaker as just this week she was featured at the UVU Forum on Engaged Reading. She is the district leader for library PLC’s as well as the state. Partnering with Spanish Fork City Library, she hosts a teen advisory board. And this year she has added Battle of the Books, a reading incentive program where students have fun competing with their peers. But, oh no, that is not all, Ellen-Anita serves the faculty every Friday with a “Library Pop-In,” where she personally selects teachers favorite drinks and has them on ice waiting for an informal Friday get together in the library for the faculty after a long, hard week! She highlights faculty members on their birthdays as well. Yet, even more, she takes care of all of the equipment inventory for the school with amazing detail and organizational skills. When we want to know who has what or where to find something, we go to Ellen-Anita. If ever there was a Super Nebo Hero, it is Ellen-Anita Olson!

Students at Barnett Elementary sure looked different last Tuesday. We had some ninjas, Power Rangers, characters from Dr. Seuss and even a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz attending our school. No students quite looked like themselves and that is what makes Halloween at school so much fun! Students were able to strut their stuff in the morning during the Halloween Parade. The fun didn’t stop there! Many classes celebrated Halloween by having Halloween parties. Thank you to the room moms and class volunteers that helped throw some pretty great parties. We are so lucky to have such great support at our school to help us create some great memories at Barnett Elementary.

Brockbank Fifth Grade Students Enjoy D.A.R.E.

Brockbank fifth-grade students as part of their D.A.R.E. program taught by Officer Bryan DeWitt have been learning several lessons about drugs and ways to avoid the many influences in their lives that might lead them down dangerous paths. One of the fun activities fifth-graders got to do was to see Officer DeWitt's patrol car and see all the equipment that he uses to do his job. He showed them how some of it works and how he uses it in his job. Students have really learned a lot this year and are looking forward to graduating from D.A.R.E.

Brockbank third graders were thrilled to receive dictionaries donated by Central Bank. Mr. Glen Roach, is a part of the Spanish Fork Rotary Club who has a goal of placing a dictionary in the hands of every third grade student. Each student put his/her name in the dictionary and is encouraged to use it during classwork and also at home. Mr. Roach has sponsored Brockbank Elementary for several years and we appreciate his continued support of our students. Third graders look forward every year to Mr. Glen Roach's visit and the dictionaries he brings.
