In the month of September 2016, Barnett Elementary kicked off the Leader in Me program. This event was designed to help parents and families learn more about leadership and life skills. The program creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. The concepts are based from Stephen Covey’s book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.
“An incredible day at Diamond Fork Jr. High School!” was the reaction of one helper who attended the district-wide Special Education Extravaganza. The day was full of excitement and encouragement for all those in attendance. Under the direction of Jo Edan Parker (special education teacher) and Linda Lewis (former PE teacher), the event was more spectacular than they had anticipated.
Brendan Bakker (SFHS), Tyler Christmas (MMHS), Gavin Deschamps (PHS), Noah Eliason (SHS), Kyle Gordon (SHHS), Rebekah Hair (MMHS), T-Rex Larsen (SHHS), Samuel Oliver (MMHS), Nicholas Paduano (MMHS), and Adam Syndergaard (MMHS) are students in the Engineering Design and Development course which is the capstone course for the engineering program at the Advanced Learning Center.
