WEEKLY NEWS
This week at Diamond Creek our 5th grade students had a full day of reading at Camp Read S'More! Our students were highly engaged in their reading activities and thank you to all of our parents who helped set up tents and came to read with our students! It was a meaningful day of learning for our students.

Our 3rd grade students had a visit from our local library where they learned about checking out books and all received their own library cards that need to be activated at the library! Last year, Diamond Creek had the most participation across the district in our local library program! Way to go readers!

A reminder that next Thursday, October 31st and Friday, November 1st are non school days for students.  Our staff will be learning together at Professional Development. 

All of our students in grades 2-5 have been taking the iReady diagnostic. Each classroom has a different schedule of when they are taking both the Reading and Math diagnostic.  Students take this diagnostic four times throughout the year to measure growth in a variety of areas.  The data is then used to provide intervention and extension opportunities and provide appropriate instruction in the classroom.

Girls on the Run
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.  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! We are still looking for one more coach to help us with Girls on the Run this year. Please email Mrs. Garcia if you are interested in learning more.
