Week of February 4-8

As of last Monday our Pennies for Patients total was over $3,000 after one week! We can't wait to hear our new total on Monday. Thank you for all of your support with this at home as we reach to achieve our goal of $10,000 being donated to the lymphoma and leukemia society.

Our students are hard at work in their classrooms.  I am constantly amazed at the math conversations they are having with each other.  Often times, our students are teaching me a variety of strategies to solve a particular math concept. Their ability to share why and how they solved a problem using a particular strategy is so fun to hear!

This week our Villages will meet on Wednesday for our Village meeting. We will continue reviewing Habit #4 and discussing how our tone of voice and body language contribute to our communication with others.

Calling all of our Diamond Creek father figures! We will be hosting Dads & Donuts on Wednesday, February 20th at 8:15-8:45 am in our MPR. We invite our Diamond Creek father figures to come along with their Diamond Creek students to enjoy donuts together and learn more about our WATCH D.O.G.S. program.  If you have attended our events previously the information will be similar but you are still welcome to come and enjoy this time with your child!  Please RSVP HERE

Student Leadership
New this year at Diamond Creek we have Student Leadership opportunities available for all of our 3rd through 5th grade students.  Leadership jobs include tasks such as library helper, lunch room line helper, playground equipment helper, student ambassador for new students, DC news crew, social media interns, and more!! We started our Student Leadership group this year instead of Student Council as a way to encourage more of our students to be leaders in a variety of areas across Diamond Creek. A huge thank you to Mrs. Lopez and Ms. Triplett for organizing and leading this group of students.

Registration is officially open in RCSD!!   Registration is all done online for new students and returning students. Below is a list of what documents you will need to scan and upload during that process for new students.

 Birth Certificate (County copy)
 Proof of Residency – acceptable documents are PG&E or Roseville Electric. It must be the page
with your name and “service address”
 Photo ID of parent
Once you have completed your registration, we need you to bring the immunization record for your
student to the school office.

Current 5th grade students do still need to register so that our system will move them into Middle School.  Any current students not planning to attend Diamond Creek next year, please call the office to let us know. 

Please share this information with friends and neighbors!!!

We will be hosting a Girls on the Run team again at Diamond Creek this year.  Girls on the Run is available to all of our girls in Grades 3-5.  Registration opened on January 21st at 8:00 am. Each team may have up to 20 participants, we still have a few spots open.  Register at https://www.gotrsac.org/

Girls on the Run is a program created to inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.  We can't wait for our girls to experience this team again this year! 

Winter and Spring dates have now been added to our sign up sheet for WATCH DOGS.  We love having our Dads and Father Figures helping us throughout the day at Diamond Creek.

Information on W.A.T.C.H. Dogs is linked below as well as a sign up for open days!
