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.
