Service Project for Mrs. Sorensen's class

For Valentine's Day, students wanted to share their love and chose to do a service project for their class party.  Students were each able to make a first-aid kit, and collected many other items to be donated to Humanitize Expeditions. 

These items will be taken to Haiti, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic to help those in need.  Great job students! You are definitely making the world a better place. 

Thank you to all those who donated items for this project.

Diamond Fork Junior High Registration Assembly

Parent(s) of Sierra Bonita Sixth Grade Students, 

On Friday, March 23rd, 2018 Diamond Fork Jr. High School would like to invite you to attend a registration assembly in the junior high café-torium.  We will be meeting with the sixth grade students from 9:30-11:00 AM for an introduction to our school.  Parents and students will have the opportunity to view a brief presentation and to receive 7th grade registration information.  If you cannot attend, your student will be instructed to bring home the registration form for your approval and signature.  The 7th grade registration form needs to be returned to their 6th grade teacher by March 30th.  If the registration form is not returned to their teacher by March 30th, please bring it to the junior high school Counseling Center as soon as possible.  Late registration forms may cause students not to receive their chosen electives.  

We look forward to helping your student have a successful junior high experience. 

Thank you,

Diamond Fork Junior High Counselors

Nebo Stakeholder Survey

Lana Hiskey

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools.  A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday, February 7 and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21, 2018, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

Thank you for your helpful feedback.
