Attendance Line: 405.359.3160

Lunch Menu:

Visitors must check-in through the main office. Only authorized persons are allowed to visit and eat lunch with our students. Photo ID is required of all visitors. 

Incentive Trips are Next Week:

The 7th grade Incentive Field Trip will be Tues, Dec 6th.  We will see the movie Moana at Tinseltown and eat a pizza lunch afterwards.  The 8th grade Incentive Trip to Quail Springs Baptist Church Recreation Center will be on Thursday, Dec. 8th.  These trips are a reward for students that met the attached requirements this semester.  Students that do not qualify will stay behind with teachers and complete make-up work and practice assignments.  That work will be for a grade.  If students choose to not come to school, they will be counted absent and will still have to make up the work. Remember it is a regular school day for students that do not qualify for the field trips.  These field trips are a reward for students that have made positive choices this semester. 7th graders that are going to Tinseltown, will be provided a snack pack with small popcorn and a small drink for free, however, if they would like to purchase additional items from the Tinseltown concession stand, they will need to bring extra money.  8th graders will also be fed at the Rec Center on Thursday.  If they want to bring a lunch from home, they may do so.  See emailed “Incentive Field Trip Requirements.” We’ve attached this to The Scoop every week this semester.  Thank you for your support in partnering with us to motivate middle schoolers to make positive choices.

Finals Week:

The final week of the 1st semester is Monday Dec 12—Friday, Dec 16th. It is very important that you do not check your students out of school early for the winter break so that they can complete their final projects and exams. We do not give final exams early.  If your child misses a final exam, he/she will have to make-up that exam on the 1st day back (Jan 4th).  We space our final exams throughout the last week so that students do not have too many tests on any day. We follow our same weekly bell schedule as usual.

Mon, Dec 12th:  Math

Tues, Dec 13th:  Literature and Composition

Wed, Dec 14th: Social Studies and Electives

Thurs, Dec 15th:  Science and Electives

Support DCMS with Shoparoo!

Did you know there is a super easy way to support DCMS without spending one extra dime? School funding is tight, and many schools are having to increase their fundraisers to make ends meet.  All you have to do to support DCMS is use Shoparoo!!! By using the Shoparoo app to snap pictures of shopping receipts, last year's DCMS families raised $1,100 for DCMS! We received our check last week!  

Shoparoo is a hassle-free fundraiser created by teachers and parents to support schoolsOver 10,000 schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even THOUSANDS of dollars for their school through Shoparoo!  All you have to do is snap a pic of your shopping receipt before you toss it in the trash can!  You are providing consumer information for this area, and you can remain anonymous.  They do not share your info with anyone.  I've used it personally for 2 years.  For each receipt you submit, your sponsoring school receives $$$
