News from Mrs. Diggs

Patriot Families,


We have 8 more days to make a positive difference in student learning outcomes this year! We cannot believe how quickly this school year has flow by. Over the past few weeks, our students have been engaged in crafting their skills as writers, developing a love of reading in reading workshops, problem solving in math workshops and learning all about science as well as social studies. We have continued to focus on what it means to have Patriot GRIT while really exploring what it means to have Tenacity. Our Patriot Focus Book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak has helped us recognize that there is always room for us to grow. Our Patriot Learners have been encouraged to continue to self both academic as well as personal goals for themselves as we wrap up this school year.


Next year, Providence will officially be a campus that receives designated state Title I support. Following field day on Friday, I will be sharing information in the library about what this designation means for our campus and answering questions. The Title I Informational Meeting will take place May 17th at 1:45pm. Be sure to join us if you would like to learn more or have questions.


I am truly blessed to be able to serve our students, staff, and our Providence community. If I can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me by calling the school at 940-369-1900 or via email at jdiggs@dentonisd.org.


With Patriot Pride,
Jairia Diggs, M.Ed.
