Principal's Message

Mrs. April Davis

June 2019

Dear Parents and Friends of Diekman School,

It is truly hard to believe the 2018-2019 school year has ended!! 

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all our families and volunteers for their dedication, time, energy, generosity and support of their efforts throughout the school year.  We could not have done it without you.  Thank you for partnering with us in the education of our children. 

So to all our students, teachers, and parents, I would like to say Thank You for another amazing school year.  The end of the school year always seems to come quickly.  We are excited to introduce our Summer Reading Initiative along with our partnership with Roosevelt University to support Balanced Literacy in our school.  Next year we will have a Balanced Literacy Coach in the building.  Our goal is to help students re-ignite the passion for reading!  This week all the students received a set of books to read over summer break!!!  The reading packet was sent home with your child on the Last Day of school.  Every student that completes the “Have a Cool Summer” Reading postcard and returns it on the first day of school will participate in the Fun Friday Reading Party!!!!!

Summer and outside activities can sometimes distract us from what is most important.  Please continue to encourage your children to read during the summer vacation.  If your child was visiting us from another school due to overcrowding we would like to thank you for believing in us and being so patient with the transportation process.  Your child’s file will be sent to their home school for the Fall and we wish them the best of luck on their future endeavors.

Please remember school begins on Monday August 19, 2019 and the Annual Back to School Carnival is Saturday August 24, 2019 from 11am- 3pm at Caroline Sibley School. 

Until next school year, here’s wishing you love, laughter, and learning.


Yours in Service,

Mrs. April C. Davis                                                                            Ms. Renata Patterson
