October 15-19


It's been an exciting week at Diamond Creek leading up to our Fall Festival on Friday.  Our classrooms have some amazing pumpkins to share and our students have been pumped about visiting the Book Fair to find new books to read. 

Our 3rd grade students visited the Maidu Museum this week and came back excited to share about their learning and adventures. 

Our 2nd through 5th grade students will be taking the iReady diagnostic for the 2nd time this year anytime from now through October 31st. This is a diagnostic assessment that allows us to measure progress in ELA and Math for each student and plan intervention and instruction which is appropriate to each student's individual needs. 

On Wednesday, we will have our next Village meeting.  Our meeting focus will also be on Habit #1: I'm in Charge of Me which we kicked off at our rally a few weeks ago.  Students have been working hard to remember our Essential: Be Responsible for Your Trash.  We hope you are noticing these habits and essentials we are teaching at home as well!  I have had many compliments from visitors and parents of how well our students are doing at greeting people and using "eyeballs and handshakes".  Our Habits posters are again linked below if you would like to use these in your homes as well.
