r “The Strength of the Team is the Team” is the theme for Diamond Fork Junior High School this year. Adopted from the Utah Jazz national basketball team, “The Strength of the Team is the Team” has proven to be a meaningful motto for individuals and groups at Diamond Fork Junior High School.

Two years ago, “team days” were instigated by Principal Brenda Burr. Each student belongs to a team of eighteen to twenty students for the purpose of encouraging friendship and mentoring among students of various grades. Teams meet weekly to play games, participate in team building activities, and strengthen friendships.

Kara Poulsen, drama teacher at Diamond Fork Junior High, said, “We want every person at Diamond Fork to feel like they are part of the team, that everybody here supports everyone else, and that everyone has a place to belong.”

McKay Turner, an eighth-grade student at Diamond Fork Junior High, loves attending Friday meetings with his team. He said that the meetings “make it easier for some people to make friends.”

Upon reaching out to the Utah Jazz about the adopted motto, Diamond Fork Junior High received news that the mascot for the Utah Jazz, the Jazz Bear, would be visiting their school! During a pep rally held on Wednesday, September 13 at Diamond Fork Junior High, the Jazz Bear rode in on top of a van launching confetti, throwing Jazz t-shirts to students, and spraying silly string in an effort to band students together for the upcoming school year. The Jazz bear lovingly danced with students, took pictures, and played with them. All students and faculty members Diamond Fork Junior High were delighted and grateful to have the Jazz Bear come to their school.
