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!

Updates from our week at Diamond Creek  One of our exciting events this week included Santa's Elves visiting our first grade students! Students had written letters to the Elves who then delivered letters back to our students.  Our 1st grade students were thrilled to share their writing with the Elves and even took some of their free time later on to write thank you notes to them.  Coming up this week our Choir students have been hard at work for their Holiday Concert on Tuesday evening! We look forward to hearing their beautiful music!  Our 3rd grade students have also been hard at work preparing for their Holiday Play.  They will be presenting to our Diamond Creek students during the day and our parents the evening of December 14th.  Over the next two weeks you may notice our staff wearing similar apparel.  As a staff we started the 12 Days of Diamond Creek Cheer on Thursday with jeans and flannel day.  A few of our students noticed right away that our staff were all wearing

Updates from our week at Diamond Creek  We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break last week and enjoyed time with family and friends. I was excited on Monday to greet our students and welcome them back this week!  We had some exciting learning happening all around Diamond Creek this week. I am always amazed when walking through classrooms to see the progress our students have made since the beginning of the school year.  They are working hard each day! This week our 4th & 5th grade students were organized into villages at our kick off assembly.  The kids seemed to love the assembly and kick-off assembly!  The 8 villages are organized by colors and students will be picking village names and creating banners to represent their village.  Each village is comprised of a teacher along with 4th and 5th grade students.  Villages will be meeting every 3-4 weeks to discuss effective habit skills.  This month the focus will be on how to show appreciation and gratitude.    Our village
