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

Please help us start a new tradition at Diamond View.
Diamond View School has started a new tradition where we are awarding students with outstanding achievement in academics, citizenship, participation in activities, attendance, and more. Students earning rewards will receive a lanyard and achievement pins to collect and add to their lanyard. Today was our first awards ceremony. We have funded the base start-up cost for this program, but to continue on with being able to hand out these awards we will need support from the student's families and friends. If you would like to sponsor a child with a $10 contribution it would pay for a child to receive at least 6 pins throughout the year. The more we raise the more students are rewarded. All money raised will go directly back to the students. More pins will be added throughout the year. Our current enrollment is 332. Please help us raise $3320.
You can donate online through our Facebook page or drop your donation off in the office. Thank you!
Congratulations to Mrs. Martin
