Week of February 19-23

Updates from our week at Diamond Creek 
It was a week full of Valentine's love for our friends and family at Diamond Creek! We enjoyed a wonderful performance by the Auburn Symphony on Wednesday.   The students truly enjoyed the beautiful music and I even was able to perform a triangle solo!

The iReady testing window began this week for our 2nd through 5th grade students.  This is a diagnostic assessment that students take four times throughout the year.  This is our third test of the 17-18 school year. Teachers use the data from this assessment to plan classroom lessons, small group lessons and interventions based on what students need.

Our Pennies for Patients finished up at the end of last week.  Congratulations to all of our Diamond Creek students and families. We will be presenting the Lymphoma and Leukemia Foundation with a check for $8,548.24!! Thank you for all of your support with our penny drive.  

A reminder there is No School this Monday, February 19th in observance of President's Day.
