We had a wonderful week at Diamond Creek celebrating our staff and honoring them for all of their hard work.  Thank you for all of the kind notes, treats and love you surrounded them all with this week, it was all greatly appreciated.  We love our staff and are so thankful for all they do for our students at Diamond Creek.

We had our last Village Meeting of the year on Wednesday. We reviewed Habit 7: Find Your Balance.  Students participated in a fun four corners game where they were asked questions about strengths and areas of growth when it comes to balance in their life in these four areas: Mind, Body, Soul, and Heart.  We discussed strategies to help us keep these areas of our life in Balance.  We will have one more Village Rally on May 22nd as the grand finale of our year!

A reminder that open house is Thursday, May 16th from 6-7:30, students will be dismissed at 2:05.

We had an exciting week at Diamond Creek! Our 4th grade students went on their big field trip to Coloma! This is always a highlight for our 4th grade students. On Friday, we welcomed our Grandparents to Diamond Creek for our 2nd grade Grandparents Day.  Our 2nd grade students performed beautiful songs for our Grandparents and were able to learn more about their grandparents traditions and hobbies.  This is always a very special day for our students and Grandparents.

We have many science experiments alive and well at Diamond Creek! Students in multiple grade levels are studying and observing the life cycle.  We have plants growing, caterpillars moving through their life cycle and chick eggs that will be hatching soon! Many exciting opportunities for our students to learn and observe.

We had a great first week back after Spring Break! We hope you and your families had a wonderful week off together and enjoyed some family fun time.  Our 3rd through 5th grade students continued on with their statewide CAASPP testing.  They are definitely taking their time and trying their best! Thank you for helping them get lots of sleep at night and healthy breakfasts in the morning.

We had a Village Rally this last week and introduced our last habit, Habit #7: Find Your Balance.  We talked about being the best we can be and living our best life.  Our very own teacher, Mr. Lemos, also delivered a positive message about overcoming obstacles to be the best you can be and how some very special teachers had a strong, positive influence in his life.

This week our final two 3rd grade classes visited the Bernhard Museum. They came back tired with many highlights to share!

Our Village Meeting was this week. In our Villages we discussed Habit #6: All in This Together.    Students discussed activities that are easier to do in a team vs. alone.  We came up with a large list that ranged from sports like basketball, soccer, baseball to building structures in our classroom and solving math problems.  We discussed how much better we are together when we help and lift others up.

Our 5th grade students experienced another highlight of 5th grade this week - the sheep heart dissection! Students were highly engaged in this activity and were guided through the various parts of the heart and their functions. It was an amazing hands on learning experience for our students.
