A Note From Mr. Lawrence

Diamond Middle School

"Home of the “Wildcats” 

Principal: John Lawrence      Assistant Principal: Chris Mettlach       Counselor: Michael Crider 


Dear Wildcat Families,


I want to cordially welcome all of you to the 2019-2020 school year and for making Diamond Middle School your school of choice.  Summer is a time to reflect and to energize as we prepare for the new school year. During the summer we have made several changes to improve our academic course work and to ensure we are preparing students to be college and career ready.  At Diamond Middle School, we believe students should “Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful as these key pillars reflect our school culture.  As we begin the school year, it is our desire to provide a comprehensive curriculum, provide extracurricular opportunities, and enhance student achievement to its fullest. 

As the principal at Diamond Middle School, I look forward to working with the teachers, parents, and students to make this a successful school year.  We are blessed with a great teaching staff, as we were able to recruit and retain an awesome group of professionals dedicated to teaching and learning.  Please call the front office if you have any questions and look forward to having your student for the coming school year. Please visit the district website as this will serve as a resource for upcoming events and important reminders. Our Facebook page is also available as you can enjoy the wonderful things our teachers are doing in the classroom.

Please review the handbook regarding our expectations, rules, and policies that govern students, staff, and parents within the Diamond school district.  We look forward to seeing everyone on the first day of school and hope the rest of your summer break is enjoyable.

In closing, our Diamond Middle School vision statement is “A Community of Excellence, Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships” and want to personally welcome you to the Wildcat Family.


John Lawrence
