Keep Antioch Beautiful 2016 Results

The results are finally in from Keep Antioch Beautiful’s 7th event. The April 23rd event included a small turnout of amazing volunteers. While the turnout was smaller than previous years at 198, you wouldn’t have been able to tell by the amount of debris cleaned up. 


Four tons (that’s over 10,000 POUNDS!!!!!!!!) of litter and illegal dumping were picked up in our neighborhoods.  A special thanks to the Public Works staff that come out to help with the BBQ and with most of the heavy lifting of large items that day. This is truly a community event.  The winners of the school participation contest are ...

1st prize $500 t 2nd prize $300 t 3rd prize $200


High School:

District Spelling Bee (UPDATE)

BDMS would like to send a HUGE congratulation to Gabby Gonzalez and Paulette Imperial for the outstanding job they both did at the District Spelling Bee.  You both represented the Black Diamond community extremely well.  Way to go!



Important reminder regarding your child's transition to
high school for the 2016-17 school year. 


Also, we have added a new option of a non-themed pathway at Deer Valley High School. If you would like to select the non-themed pathway and have already turned in your child's pathway application, you may submit a revised application indicating you would like the non-themed academy. Please mark this application as 'revised'  and return it to your child's current school office.  

As always, please do not hesitate to contact your child's current school if you have any questions about the pathway lottery process and/or your child's transition to high school.
