What's New @ Diamond View!

Diamond View School Principal's Report- Mrs. Heimbigner

Are you a Chain or a Link? We need both!

Hello Diamond View Students and Families,

Our students and staff have just finished up the first trimester and many of you are probably getting ready for Thanksgiving break and the start of the holiday season. In these first few months, we have spent time getting to know you and your family. With your help, and with the help of the staff, much work has gone into setting up a positive and hardworking culture at Diamond View. We have seen major gains in our behavior, attendance, and our students’ iReady scores. One hundred fifty-five students made the honor roll, which is 55% of the school! Students are working hard every day and there are positive results to be seen every day.

That being said, there are also some issues, which are common in middle schools and the adolescent stage of life. Attached is a video that we will be watching here at school. I sincerely hope that you will also take the time to watch it. Even though it references high school, it applies to all ages, especially middle school.

After watching the video, my question for our Diamond View Community is: “Which of us will be the “chain builders” for support to our students that have ventured out a little too far from shore?” Which of us will be the links to make sure that the chain is strong and supported? Let’s work together to have the chains ready for our students who get a little too far out and are in danger of getting swept away.

We know Diamond View is not perfect, but we are always striving to improve. Hopefully, we can face these challenges together. If you have ideas for improving student achievement, while having a little fun while doing so, please help us by sharing. “Are you a chain or are you a link? Either way, we need you.”—from Chains and Link Video

I hope you have a fantastic holiday season and I look forward to our next trimester here at Diamond View.

I hope to see you at parent conferences this week!

11/20-11/22 1:00- 3:00PM

Constitution Test Coming Up Soon!

Part of our 8th Grade Graduation requirement is that 8th graders pass the Constitution Test. The test is coming up soon! The test will be on December 11th and 12th. The teachers will be hosting two very important study sessions on December 5th and the other on December 10th. For some, this is the first big test that they have to study for. Please encourage your student to start studying now. Did you know that there are even APPs to help you study the Constitution?

We have Guitars!!

Thank you for buying those lottery tickets! Did you know we were able to fund guitars with lottery money? Yes, it does go to the schools. Mr. Jenner is set up with some fancy guitars to help bring music into the school.
