May Newsletter - The Final Countdown!

May 24, 2018

And the countdown is ON!!  There are only 2 weeks remaining in the school year.  Here's a breakdown on the last 2 weeks.

On Your Marks…Get Set….GO!!!!

The Diamond Creek PTC will be putting on our annual end of the year Field Day on Friday, June 1st!  This is a fun event for our students where each class rotates through fun activity stations such as Tire Relay’s and Tug-O-War.

The event will be in the morning from 9:30-11:45 and we ask that every student wear their classroom T-shirt and a hat,  have sunscreen and bring a water bottle.  There will be water refill stations at the event.  

We need lots of parent volunteers to help make this day successful!  Please see the SIGN UP GENIUS below to see what jobs are available.  The event is broken down into 3 age groupings:  Youngest Classes (TK-1st), Middle Classes (2nd-3rd) and the Older Classes (4th-5th).  After the event is over, the kids will eat their lunches outside at their normal lunch time.  We encourage parent volunteers to stay and have a picnic lunch with your child.  Please note that there will be a bit of a time gap between the end of Field Day and the normal lunch time period.

Any questions regarding field day can be directed to Heather Weis @
