That's strange, I get frequent phone messages and emails. Perhaps you didn't give good contact information if you aren't getting any. There is also a message board in front of the school and a website.
The school has been changed in recent years. 1. Lock of parents participation. Why? Why less parents want to involve or participate in this school? There must be some reasons. 2. Rule! Rule! Rule to parents and students. 3. One way direction - announcement only - lock of communication or communication skills. Only staffs and/or a group of parents know what is going on around the campus. I don t think parents are willing to give some feedback to avoid trouble. Few years ago, this school was a very good school. It is sad to see those changed.
Diamond Point Elementary School is a fantastic school!! Not only is our new principal dedicated to improving every aspect of our school, she has shown a great interest in bridging the gap between parents and school. Diamond Point is dedicated to making sure each and every parent knows they have a voice at school. D.P. staff and PTA is committed to making parent involvement 100%! There is such a wonderful group of students and staff this year, we are the best school in Pomona Unified and I am proud to have my children attend D.P.!
Diamond Point Elementary is an awesome school with great students and a dedicated staff. They have worked very hard during the past few years to ensure students succeed academically, have fun while learning, and that families feel welcome. They PTA is fabulous and is committed to providing support for school activities and programs.
In regards to the person who commented that Diamond Point is communicating only to "some" parents...Do you receive and read the monthly newsletter that is sent home? Do you check the school website that's updated several times a month? Do you see the updated marquee that is in front of the school? Do you see the Principal on and around campus, available and approachable? Are you aware that we have a School Site Council and Bilingual Advisory Council that parents are invited to attend? Communication is one area where Diamond Point shines! As far as grammatical errors, that's human error, perhaps a typo now and then; what a shame that you can think of nothing nice to say about your home school!
My Child is among one of the children that ride the school buses! its something called: NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND!I had the choices from different schools and I choose this one this school believe it or not is ranked rather highly! just because my son isn't a RESIDENT doesn't mean that I was going to settle so all the children that attend the school in buses is every parent that choose that school for there child to go to and have them ride the bus because they probably aren't all stay at home moms they work for a living.I give this principle credit because no buddy is perfect!had I known I would have to deal with such selfish parents (some not all) I would have choose a different school.ALL IN ALL it is for the child
D.P is a great school My child has attended since 1st grade and is now in5th for the 2012-2013 school year. By far the best well behaived students I've talked too. Huge parent involvement. When you visit the school teachers and staff know how to associate parents with children (which shows their staff takes the time to care as individuals, not just as students). We have an awsome science AM program, along with two onsite after school programs that help with Homework. There is an awsome drop off/pick-up system that 99.9 % of parents follow. Im very proud of our Mustangs!!
This is such a wonderful school, my child is currently in the 2010-2011 school year. the last three years have been such a great experience. great staff wonderful and safe campus. The PTA is super involved which is what makes this school a succesful school.
