December 3-7

WEEKLY NEWS

We had a great full week back after break! We hope you had a restful Thanksgiving holiday week with your family and friends.

Our students had a Village meeting Wednesday.  Our focus continued with Habit #2: Know Before You Do It.   We discussed academic goals and what those may look like and sound like related to school work. Then each of our students made their own individualized academic goal. Our big buddies did an incredible job of leading and helping our younger buddies set and write meaningful goals. I was impressed at how specific many of our students were, such as achieving a certain level on Lexia or mastering division and multiplication facts up to ten.  We have some great goals to achieve this year!



Academic Goal Setting in our Villages

TOY DRIVE - BEGINS MONDAY

Girls on the Run
We will be hosting a Girls on the Run team again at Diamond Creek this year.  Girls on the Run is available to all of our girls in Grades 3-5.  Registration opens on January 21st at 8:00 am. Each team may have up to 20 participants.

Girls on the Run is a program created to inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.  We can't wait for our girls to experience this team again this year! 

Pajama Day!
