WEEKLY NEWS WOW! We had a great week at Diamond Creek.  The highlight of our week was definitely our student sorting day on Wednesday. All of our students at Diamond Creek found out which Village they belong to at our school. This will be their Village moving forward for the rest of their career at Diamond Creek.  We began building relationships on Day 1 with learning the Village chant, learning names and even practicing our hand shake skills.  Make sure to ask your child all about their Village. We will have our first Village meeting on Wednesday, September 5th.  Students are encouraged to wear their Village T-shirts they received on Wednesday.   We will have a Village meeting once per month and a Village Rally once per month. These will always be on Wednesday from 11:00-11:30. Thank you to some of our amazing parent volunteers who captured the day in photos for us. A few of them are below and more to come! We will be offering one more evening at Diamond Creek for our parents t

WEEKLY NEWS We are anxiously awaiting our Student SORTING DAY coming up this Wednesday, August 29th at Diamond Creek! Our students will finally be finding out their Village, learning their Village chant and beginning to make connections with the other students and staff in their Village.  We are encouraging all students to wear a white shirt to school on Wednesday so that we can white out Diamond Creek.  Part of the Village celebration will be delivering Village T-shirts to students with their Village name, color and symbol. Students will be able to put their shirt on right over their white shirt and wear for the remainder of the day. We have a few parents who have volunteered to photograph this day for us so we will be sure to share with you the excitement from this day! Thank you to all of our families who participated in our Skate Night and Dine & Donate this past week. It was a packed week of community fun for us at Diamond Creek.  Another huge thank you to all of our pare
