Week of September 7-11

WEEKLY NEWS

We had an exciting week at Diamond Creek with our Special Sorting Day Zoom Rally for our TK/Kinder and all new students to Diamond Creek!! Over 110 students found out their Village on Wednesday morning! 

Then we kicked off our Villages on Thursday with an all school rally which was completed in individual classrooms via Zoom.  Linked below are the 7 Habits we discuss at Diamond Creek. Over the school year, we will spend time each month reviewing one of the 7 Habits along with the essentials that align with each Habit.  Habit #1: I'm in Charge of Me will be our focus in two weeks! 

Feel free to print and use these posters at home as well.
