Week of April 26-30

Hello Trailblazer Families,

Exciting news for our 2nd grade students this week as a few of their caterpillars are beginning to hatch into beautiful butterflies! Some of our 1st grade students are also enjoying learning and observing the life cycle of a chick with chick eggs.  Students were able to Zoom in with a researcher in the poultry science department at North Carolina State to learn more about the cycle of the chick eggs.

CANNED FOOD DRIVE: May 3rd - May 7th

Diamond Creek’s annual canned food drive kicks off Monday, May 3rd 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.
