There is a PTA Coffee scheduled for October 20 at 9:00am in our new cafeteria. Members of our counseling staff will be on hand to share with parents the role of counselors and social workers here at Diamond.
There will be an 8th grade parent meeting about our Washington D.C. trip on October 18th at 7:00pm in the Diamond auditorium. At this time, we will review fundraising for this trip.
This year, in addition to the morning topic-based principal coffees at Diamond, the PTA is going to host four evening “meet and greets” with Principal Turner. These will be held in parents' homes and provide an opportunity for a more informal conversation with Principal Turner and allow her to get to know members of the community. In order to allow a chance for conversation (and to be considerate of our hosts), these evening coffees will be limited to 40 people; sign-up forms will be available online before each coffee.
Our first evening meet and greet is next Tuesday, October 10th from 7-8:30pm at the home of Vaishali Mitta, 40 Grove St. You can sign up to attend here: https://goo.gl/forms/eZtNJjD9ntqzcqJx2 . We look forward to seeing you there!
Dear Diamond Community,
This year, the Student Council is organizing a fundraiser to support the victims affected by the terrible disasters that have hit parts of our country. For one, Hurricane Harvey caused devastation, destroyed homes, and affected thousands of families. Fewer than two weeks ago, Hurricane Irma hit Florida, flooding cities on the coast. Two more hurricanes: Jose and Maria, have wrecked havoc on other cities as well.
With all these people affected by the storms, the Diamond community is ready to help! The Student Council members, with the support of the Diamond PTA, are selling drawstring bags to raise money for classrooms in these communities. The bag features an image of the Diamond Drum and cost $10. An image of the bag is attached below. You can purchase as many bags as you’d like, or you can donate directly through the links and QR code below. All proceeds will go directly to classrooms in need through an organization called DonorsChoose. As a group, we will choose projects posted by teachers and schools in affected areas. (DonorsChoose.org: Support a classroom. Build a future.)
The Diamond Student Council is a group of students dedicated to making positive change, not only at Diamond, but also in the Lexington community and throughout our world. With your support, together we can make a difference!
Student Council members will be present during Back to School night, so please stop by and ask us any questions.
