  Hello Trailblazer Families,  We hope you and your families have a nice break and a Happy Thanksgiving. We know breaks and holidays are different this year, but we wish you all the happiness in the small moments.

We hope you all had a great week as we transitioned into new learning spaces. On site, we had a great week welcoming students back. I am amazed at how well students did adjusting to all of our safety procedures. There were so many smiles underneath those masks and lots of excitement to be back in the classroom with teachers and peers. If you have not yet had a chance to review our Diamond Creek Procedures video, watch this video as a family to become familiar with our school-wide expectations.  HERE is a campus map that will help students in navigating campus.

Students are encouraged to wear their Village T-shirt or color! We wil
