Week of January 8-12

Updates from our week at Diamond Creek 
This week we had our second Reading Drill. Students have the opportunity to Stop, Drop and READ as an entire school! Students are enjoying the surprise of the drill and the opportunity to dive into their favorites books. 

Our 3rd grade students were hard at work this week presenting their Holiday Traditions reports. It's fun to see the variety of ways students are presenting information and the unique traditions each student has with family and friends. 

The staff at Diamond Creek and I wish you a happy and healthy holiday break.  We hope you have time to relax, play and enjoy family and friends.  We look forward to having our students back on January 9th!

Spring Fundraiser
Our Spring Fundraising Event will take place on Saturday April 21, 2018. We are in need of committee members and would like to have our first meeting Wednesday, Jan 10, 2018 @ 6:00PM in the school library. This is our LAST big fundraiser for the school year. We need a lot of help planning the event and collecting donations.
If you are able to help, please come to our meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting, there are still ways to help. On our PTC website is an area you will find our sponsorship letter, if you know of any businesses that can donate to our event, please give them the form. Thank you in advance for all your support. Please feel free to contact us for any questions.

Strep Throat
There have been several cases of strep throat at Diamond Creek. Practicing good hygiene techniques such as hand washing, covering all coughs and sneezes, and not sharing food or drinks can help decrease the chance of getting and spreading diseases like strep throat. 

We will be hosting our next WATCH D.O.G.S. Kick Off event on Tuesday, January 23rd from 8:15-8:45 am. We invite our Dads and Father Figures to join us for donuts and learn more about our WATCH D.O.G.S. program and how to get involved. Students of our dads are welcome to join for donuts as well! There will be more information coming home after break as well as a way to RSVP for the event. 

We had more WATCH D.O.G.S. this week and it was AWESOME!! Thank you to all of our Dads that have signed up for day(s) so far this year! Your positive reinforcement truly makes a difference!

Please click on the link below to sign up for a WATCH D.O.G.S. day if you are interested! Mrs. Garcia will send out another form in November for the remainder of the year. If there is a day after January that you are interested in signing up, just email Mrs. Garcia to sign up.  Stay tuned for our 2nd WATCH D.O.G.S. event that will happen in January - Donuts with Dads! Thank you for all of your support starting this program at Diamond Creek. We are excited to have so many positive male role models at Diamond Creek helping with our students.  A reminder that all WATCH D.O.G.S need to have fingerprinting and TB testing cleared through the district.  New DATES were added to this form which continue into January and February.
