Week of September 3-7

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 to receive fingerprinting services if you are interested in being a Category II volunteer. The fee is $57.  The fingerprinting services will be available on Thursday, September 6th fro 5-6 PM in the Diamond Creek MPR.

GIRLS ON THE RUN
We will be hosting another Girls on the Run team this year at Diamond Creek.  Practices start in February and registration is in January, but we are looking for one more coach to help with our team.  Girls on the Run is open to our girls in 3rd through 5th grade and is a program that's designed to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  Please let Mrs. Garcia know if you are interested in coaching this year.  Practices are two days a week after school for 90 minutes.
