Here's The Scoop!



Important Message to Students for the Last Week of School:

Parents--I have directed teachers to read this message to homeroom classes on Monday. I don't want any students to potentially face a consequence that carries into the next school year. Some of our students struggle with self-control during the last week of school.  Please talk to your child about this message:

Students---The last week of school is finally here.  We want this week to be relaxed and fun at DCMS so that we can all start our summer break feeling good about this school year.  Instead of final exams, later this week we are asking for your help by assisting in moving your teachers into their new classrooms. It's going to be a fun week. However, please don't let the excitement of the approaching summer break influence you to make poor behavior choices this week.  We will have no tolerance for negative behaviors.  We would hate for you to end your school year under a suspension. Keep in mind that certain behaviors require a certain number of days of suspension according to district policies, and if your suspension is not concluded by the end of the week, this means that it will carry over into August. We don't want any surprises for our students, so we are educating you on this now.  It would be pretty embarrassing to not be able to join your classmates in August either here at DCMS or at the high school because you are still suspended for something you did in May.  We do not want that for our students. We want your 8th grade year and your freshman year to start with a clean record, so please keep this in mind this week.  Think before you act.  Let's remember the Antler Way and make good choices! Thank you! 

Congratulations to our May Students of the Month!

Shout-Out to Youth and Government!

Congratulations to the Youth and Government Model United Nation Team who saved the world in a simulation in Moore last Saturday!  Way to go!  We are very proud of our entire delegation!


Yearbook Distribution/Sales:

All pre-ordered yearbooks will be distributed Tuesday during all 3 lunches. Any extra yearbooks will be sold on a first-come, first served basis beginning Thursday morning at 6:45am by the waterfall for $60. Please talk with your child and help us by reminding students about proper yearbook signing etiquette. Any student that defaces another’s yearbook with inappropriate sayings or photos will be held fully responsible for purchasing a replacement book.  Our yearbook is a 100% student production, and we are very proud of our Yearbook Crew's hard work this year!  Please keep in mind that no school yearbook is ever perfect, and we apologize for any mistakes. We hope you enjoy our 2017-2018 DCMS Yearbook!

DCMS PTO Officers Needed!

Moving to New Classrooms for Finals Week!

It has been a hectic (and sometimes loud) year at school this year, and our kids have handled it beautifully!  Being literally "under" construction quickly became our new norm, and we are so proud of our hardworking staff and our flexible students that helped this year run smoothly despite the craziness!  As a reward, we are finishing the year with final projects and assignments and not giving final exams.  Also, at various times during the last week of school, we will ask students to help us move their teachers into new classrooms!  We truly appreciate their assistance as we work together to enjoy our newly expanded school! (Students will not be moving any heavy items.)
