  WEEKLY NEWS Hello Diamond Creek Families! We did it!! Week #1 of the 2020/21 school year.  Please take time to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy the weekend. I want to personally say THANK YOU for all of your patience and support throughout this first week of distance learning.  We know that distance learning is challenging for our students, teachers and families.  I was absolutely amazed at our students this week, their engagement and hard work.   Throughout the week, I had the opportunity to "pop in" in to classrooms to welcome our students and it was so nice to see their smiling faces.   Thank you to our teachers for planning a variety of ways to engage students and thank you to our parents for all of your support at home.  We appreciate you!  This week will be another great week of building relationships and classroom communities.  RCSD Learning Site Please refer to the site  HERE  for links and how to videos which will be helpful throughout distance learning.  Our Kindergart
