  Happy Friday Trailblazer families,   Happy New Year!  2023 is here, how can this be?  Time continues to fly here at Diamond Creek!  I hope that this message finds you happy and healthy as we enter the second half of our school year!  It was wonderful to welcome back the students, staff, and families onto our campus this week.     WINTER WEATHER AND PARKING LOT REMINDERS With the return of our wet weather comes an increase to the number of cars at drop off and pick up.  Just a friendly reminder that the flow of traffic will improve when we utilize all of the space in the Bus Loop.  Please pull all the way forward to the end of the loop and refrain from stopping in the middle.  This makes a huge difference in the amount of cars we can have dropping off at a time.   Also, please make sure to use all crosswalks and sidewalks around our campus.  We have noticed an increase of families crossing with their children in the middle of the street and the Bus Loop.  Student safety is our number

  12/23/22   Happy Friday Trailblazer families,   These last 3 days have been full of wonderful learning and fun here at Diamond Creek!  This morning the students were greeted by the Diamond Creek Staff Carolers!  We even had Buddy and Papa Elf join in on the festivities!  We kept the music going with our Music Ensemble performance this morning!  Many thanks to Ms. Dow and her wonderful musicians!  It was a very special way to spend our last morning of 2022 together.     TRAILBLAZER MARKET AND TOY DRIVE UPDATE In the last two weeks, the PTC gave $280.00 in “market dollars” to teachers to give out to students who showed kindness and leadership.    The market was able to raise $2,800.00 for the Diamond Creek Toy Drive. Amazing!  We could not have done it without the help of our volunteers.  Amy Kimura Sara Bye Staci Strickland Amanda Konyndyk Amy Wilson Carrie Lowe Desiree Ornelas Erin Garcia  Haylie Stacy Jayme Tesser  Julie Seiler Lauren Evans Lilia Tahmasian Michelle Killin Trisha Hon

  Happy Friday Trailblazer families,   It was a fabulous week here at Diamond Creek!  Many classes have been doing daily Kindness activities and spreading cheer to others around the school! These kids are incredible and so thoughtful of others! I loved going into all of the Fifth Grade classes on Thursday to read a Winter story with them!  Third Grade has been busy sharing their Tradition Reports this week as well!  On Wednesday, we enjoyed a yummy lunch put together by our PTC! The staff enjoyed the soups, salads, and sweet treats! (see pictures below in PTC NEWS.) Thank you on behalf of all our DC Staff! We finished the week up with our Village Meeting today with a very funny story called Interrupting Chicken and the students focused on what it looks like to be Disciplined at school.  Thank you to the staff leaders of the Makkiti Village for preparing today’s meeting!     Our first Trailblazer Market has been a huge success and I will update you on how much it helped raise for our
