May 2023: Communication for our Coyote Families
Note From Principal LeCount
May 8th - 12th is teacher appreciation week. I am so thankful for our PTA for sharing out information for celebrating the best staff there is. I challenge our community to FILL STAFF email boxes with appreciation. The power of words is truly impacting.
Please know on behalf of our staff, we love and appreciate our community in big ways. Thank you for your partnership and engagement this year. Last week as our first graders had their dino museum, our library was full and it warmed my heart to see how many parents come onto campus to celebrate their children. It was also wonderful seeing so many kindergarten parents that helped make National Kindergarten Day with an outdoor learning time at the park a memorable and fun experience for all.
With Coyote Pride,
Mrs. LeCount, Principal

KINDERGARTEN TESTING SIGN UP FOR 2023-24 SCHOOL YEAR
Welcome to Diamond Canyon kindergarten! We are looking forward to a year full of learning and fun with your child. As an A++ School of Excellence, we are dedicated to providing the finest learning environment for your kindergartner. We want to ensure that your child’s first year in elementary school is one that sets the foundation of good learning habits throughout their educational lives.
Before school begins, we would like to assess your child on basic reading and math skills so that we can better prepare for his/her educational needs. It also gives us a chance to meet your child and get to know their personality a little better. The data from the assessment is used to plan educational strategies, make the class lists, and will be shared with you at a later date.
Assessments will be scheduled on Monday, July 24, 2023 in the kindergarten classrooms. It should take about 20 minutes. Attached is a link for you to sign-up for a specific time. https://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Diamond_Canyon_School. Please sign up today to grab your spot.
We are looking forward to a wonderful school year!
