Principal Blog for December 20th, 2016

 Dear Parents: 

A look ahead into next semester - Beginning in January. we will have our new parking structure. Visitor parking for parents will be in designated spaces along the West side of the first parking lot, and in the first row of the parking lot between the elementary and middle school. By first row we mean the row closest to the school.  There will be NO Drop off area in that second parking lot.  That area is not a drop off area and is not safe. All lanes into the parking lot will be closed except for the first lane which is where the parking is located. Please follow these rule to keep our students safe. Workers plan to put in signage tomorrow Dec. 21, so this area will not be used for drop off or parking Wednesday of this week.

On January 19 plan to join us for the Student Led Conference night. That is a special night with lots of fun family activities. We will have some Science and Arts activities, but most importantly this is a chance for your child to share with you their learning goals and their successes. You will receive information on this upon our return on January 9th.

Today we had our Reindeer Run, which was fun for the students and a good workout as they have been practicing running the course.  It was such fun to see the antlers and other holiday creations that the children wore. Funds raised at the Run with go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This national organization is dedicated to treatment and cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

Tomorrow students participating in the run are welcome to wear their Winter or Holiday clothing. Please be sure the clothes are school appropriate, meaning that though students are out of uniform they follow district dress code in that they do not wear extremely short shorts, spaghetti straps, bare midriffs, or any outfits with inappropriate messages.

All of us at Diplomat wish you and your family and happy and safe Winter Break and a very wonderful New Year.
