WEEKLY NEWS

Welcome back to all of our students and families! We were so excited to have our students back learning with us this week.  The students jumped right back into their learning routines as I was walking through classrooms. They had many stories to share with their friends.  We hope you had a wonderful break with family and friends.

We had a Village Meeting this week.  Our students spent time together reviewing Habit #3: Make Priorities Matter and we especially talked about working before we play. Students brainstormed ways they "work first, then play" both at home and at school.  I heard many students talking about how they do their reading or their homework before they play outside with friends. We brainstormed a variety of strategies to help us stay focused and aware of distractions around us when those happen.  Thank you for supporting these habits at home as well!

Girls on the Run - REGISTRATION COMING UP!! 
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!
