Submitted by scott.buck on Wed, 04/30/2014 - 12:56

Here at Diamond Fork Junior High School we have had the opportunity to publish a yearbook at the end of every year since we started out as Spanish Fork Middle School. Not many people know how yearbooks are put together, unless you have been on a yearbook committee before. So I decided to inform you on how these wonderful parts of a school’s history get put together.

Recently, Diamond Fork Junior High held their school play “Once Upon a Mattress.” This play is based on the famous fairytale "The Princess and the Pea." It all started with the young Prince Harry who did everything he could to find the right bride for himself.  His mother appeared as an impediment to stop him from marrying.  Eventually the Princess from the swamp, nicknamed “Fred”, came before Prince Harry as the perfect bride. Will Harry’s mother stop Prince Harry and Princess Fred from becoming man and wife?

The National Junior Honors Society (NJHS) of Diamond Fork Junior High recently held a Special Olympics service project inspired by the president of the honors society Jonathan Tanner. Special needs students were placed into groups of 3-4 and chose a country to represent.  Each of the NJHS students also picked a country and made individual posters for that student and their country so they could cheer on that student while competing in all of their events.

Mr. Anderson teaches many types of art classes here at Diamond Fork Junior High such as Art Foundations, Drawing, and 3D Art. Most students at Diamond Fork participate in the Art Foundations class before entering the Drawing or 3D Art classes.  Art Foundations teaches the basics of art from both drawing and 3D such as shading, color schemes, clay, ect.  After you complete the Art Foundations class you could choose to participate in either Drawing or 3D Art - depending on which you are more interested in.
