Week of October 7-11

WEEKLY NEWS

Hello Diamond Creek Families!

We had another great week at Diamond Creek! 

Our 4th grade students were able to experience "A Touch of Understanding".  Throughout the day, students had the opportunity to experience life from the perspective of a variety of disabilities.  Students were able to practice writing in Braille, drive a wheelchair, understand the sounds and senses of autism, and more.  This is a wonderful experience for our students.  Students also have the opportunity to hear stories from a variety of speakers who have different disabilities.  We look forward to this experience for our 4th grade students each year.

On Thursday, we had a Village Rally.  Honhulu students and staff led our rally and reintroduced Habit #1: I'm in Charge of Me.  Along with Habit #1, we discussed two essentials. Be Responsible for Your Trash and Move Around Respectfully and Safely.   We will be focusing on this Habit and these two essentials through the month.  Linked below are the 7 Habits we will review throughout the year in case you would like copies for your own homes!
