Principal's Message

Happy New Year!  I hope 2019 is a year filled with engaging, rigorous, and relevant learning for all students.  I believe that family involvement is an essential component to the success of our students academically and socially. I hope that you find Diamond Point’s website to be helpful in providing you with current information about our school.  I strive to use multiple means of communicating with our families so that everyone is involved and can actively participate in their child(ren)’s education.  In addition to this website, we also use Twitter, Remind, the school marquee, the parent information bulletin board in front of the office, monthly school newsletters, and automated phone calls or emails.  Follow us on Twitter @DiamondPPUSD.  You can receive text message reminders with Remind by texting the number 81010 and writing @7k4dkd6 as the message.  Our school marquee is updated on a regular basis with upcoming events.  In addition, you are always welcome to visit Diamond Point or call the office at (909) 397-4587.   

     The first semester of the 2018-2019 school year was very productive and busy.  We had many programs and events including:

  • 1:1 Chromebooks for all students
  • PTA Fall candy fundraiser
  • Halloween Carnival and Parade
  • Book Fair and Donuts with Grand
  • Lunch on the Lawn
  • Robotics Night and weekly Robotics classes for grade 6 students
  • Jog-a-thon
  • Accelerated Reader Ice Cream Party
  • Red Ribbon Week
  • Imagine Learning for English Learners
  • Holiday Boutique and Program
  • Enrichment Classes – Young Rembrandts and Mad Science
  • PBIS Student of the Month and Quarterly Rally Prizes
  • Student Clubs – Yearbook, Garden, GATE, Knitting, Social Justice, Math Field day, and Student Council

       This second semester will also include many programs and events as we look forward to state testing for students in grades 3-6, the Variety Show, Open House, Spelling Bee, Math Field Day, Science Camp for 6th grade students, International Night, and End of the Year Activities.  Families are encouraged to be actively involved in our school.  In March, our PTA will be holding elections for PTA Board positions including President, Vice Presidents for Membership, Ways and Means, and Room Representatives, Secretary, Treasurer, Auditor, and Historian.  Our PTA is an essential partner in supporting our students as PTA funds field trip transportation, Accelerated Reader, student incentives, Garden Club, Red Ribbon Week, and special events such as Halloween Carnival and International Night.  We thank you for supporting Diamond Point in continuing its tradition of being a learning community committed to providing a safe, respectful, and positive environment for academic and social success for all.
