Hello Diamond Creek Families! We hope you had a nice, relaxing spring break with family and that your families are staying safe and healthy. 

This week our students officially kicked off Virtual Learning.  We know this can be stressful and overwhelming as a family as we balance educating our children at home and working full time.  The Garcia household is working through this balance as well! We are all in this together. Our teachers have put in hours of hard work to plan lessons that align with our grade level standards and curriculum so that students are prepared for next school year. We understand that these lessons might be done at different times of the day or parts may be completed at a time.  We are all working together to do our best during these unknown and unchartered pathways we are living in right now. Please reach out to myself or your child's classroom teacher if you have specific questions.  Thank you for all you are doing at home to help your child(ren)…
