Week of May 6-10

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!

Diamond Creek’s annual canned food drive kicks off Monday, May 6th and we’re hoping to collect over 3000 food items in JUST 1 WEEK!!.

The food bank supply gets really low in the spring and they could really use our help.  Student Leadership has come up with some theme days to make this fun! You can bring in anything on the days of the drive, but if you want a little challenge try to bring in items related to each of the days listed below.

Macaroni and/or Marinara Monday (boxes of Mac n cheese and/or Spaghetti Sauce)
Tuna Tuesday (any canned meat item)
Wellness Wednesday (any canned fruit or vegetable)
Tomato Thursday (any canned tomato item)
Free Choice Friday (Any canned food items you have!)

***The only things we cannot accept are breakable or perishable items.
