Character Education

Character Education students at Diamond Fork Junior High School have been busy.  Every Friday of the school year this class of 35 seventh graders collects hundreds of pounds of used paper to recycle.  After visiting every room in this school of 1,200 students, the used paper is then hauled to the back parking lot and deposited into the recycling bins.  This recycled paper is purchased by a recycling company, which generates over $300 a year.

$5 On Friday

Submitted by scott.buck on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 11:11

Have you heard of "$5 On Fridays?" Each student at Diamond Fork has a chance to earn five dollars every Friday for having perfect attendance each week! In order to have a chance to earn five dollars at the end of each week students must have no absences or tardies Monday-Friday. This great idea was started last year by our Vice Principal Mr. Lawrence. The goal is to encourage students to strive for great attendance.
