    Happy November, Double Diamond Families!
    This month we are celebrating kindness.  We are kicking off the month with food donations for Salvation Army and a coat drive for kids.  Please donate in our lobby if you are able.

    Our fall fundraiser will be celebrating kindness.  Students will be learning to show kindness everyday in many ways.  We are searching for corporate sponsors for this event.  If you know of a sponsor, please contact the school or DDES PTO to help make a connection.

    As the weather gets colder, please remind your child to dress warmly.  We most often go outside unless it is very cold, or there is heavy rain/snow.  In the event of a delayed start or school closure, WCSD will send phone calls home.  Additionally, you can find information at www.washoeschools.net or on the news.   Sierra Kids does not operate if there is a delayed start.

    Have a wonderful November enjoying your family and friends!

    ~Ms. Thaxton
