WEEKLY NEWS We had an exciting week at Diamond Creek! Our 4th grade students went on their big field trip to Coloma! This is always a highlight for our 4th grade students. On Friday, we welcomed our Grandparents to Diamond Creek for our 2nd grade Grandparents Day.  Our 2nd grade students performed beautiful songs for our Grandparents and were able to learn more about their grandparents traditions and hobbies.  This is always a very special day for our students and Grandparents. We have many science experiments alive and well at Diamond Creek! Students in multiple grade levels are studying and observing the life cycle.  We have plants growing, caterpillars moving through their life cycle and chick eggs that will be hatching soon! Many exciting opportunities for our students to learn and observe. Check out our Diamond Creek Student News that is filmed and produced by our Student News Leadership Group!
