Principal's Message

Home of the Bulldogs

Happy Holiday from the Staff of Diekman School!!! 


The Holiday Break is fast approaching but, learning never stops!  Winter break begins Friday, December 20th and ends January 3, 2020.  School will resume on Monday, January 6, 2020.  Have a safe Holiday!!!!!   Please make sure your child(ren)  continue to read during this holiday season.  During the winter break students are encouraged to continue to utilize the Stride Academy Program at home.  The top 10 students with the highest points will receive $100.00 in Bulldog Bucks to use in the school store.  So let’s start READING!!


The Stride Academy Program is aligned with the Common Core State Standards

and supports the transition to the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) Assessment.  Students are gradually building skills in reading and math that will be similar to questions on the IAR assessment ultimately priming them for College and Career Readiness.


Just a Friendly Reminder!!  It’s that time again and we are for your support.  Senate Bill 7 requires all schools provide a survey this to help local educators better identify strengths and areas in need of improvement. The survey gives teachers, students and parents an opportunity to voice their thoughts about the learning conditions in their school.  Your participation is essential.  We are looking for 100% participation in this 15 minute online survey.  Parents are welcome to visit our Computer Lab.  The Computer Lab will be open beginning January 6th through February 14, 2020 before and after school from 8:00-9:00 a.m. and 3:30 until 4:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday. 


The Illinois 5Essentials Survey window opened October 10th and will close February 14, 2020.  To take the survey:

  1. Visit  http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois
