Welcome Diamond Families

On behalf of the Diamond PTO, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year! We are looking forward to a busy, productive, and fun year ahead!

The PTO serves as a resource for Diamond families by keeping you informed of school events and news via daily announcements, weekly newsletters, and our website; providing grants and funding to teachers and staff for supplies and projects; supporting student clubs and intramural sports; and sponsoring social activities for both parents and students.  

Please see our 2019 Welcome Newsletter for more information about the first week of school, our directory, and answers to many Frequently Asked Questions.

We also hope you can attend these upcoming PTO-sponsored events:
