Dance Tonight!

Tonight is our annual back-to-school dance! Join us from 6-8pm for fun, friends, dancing, food trucks, and more! Cost is $5 at the door, and students can bring extra money for pizza and snocones! (food trucks in our bus loop)


Our dances are for current DCMS students only and are chaperoned by teachers and administrators. Dress is casual. Our dances take place in the cafeteria, and we will unlock the bus loop door for entrance. You can choose to drop off your child in the gym parking lot, bus loop, or front entrance parking lot, but only the bus loop door will be unlocked for entry into the building. Please communicate to your child where you will pick up after the dance. Please arrive at 8:00pm for pick up.


Welcome Week!
Next week is our annual Welcome Week! We encourage ALL students to dress up all week next week to get to know your new classmates and show school spirit! Starting with Monday, we will have Disney versus Universal day where you can pick your favorite movie or character and go all out. Tuesday is tropical day, so break out the hula skirts, khaki shorts, hawaiian shirts and sandals and cool out. Wednesday is mismatch day, so dig real deep in the back of your closet and find anything and just throw it on! The more it doesn’t match, the better! Then Thursday is Cowboys versus Aliens. Dress as a cowboy to go rescue the aliens or be trapped in Area 51 dressed as an alien, your call! Last will be Friday, which is monochromatic blue out day. Dress in deer creek blue from head to toe! Then, keep all of that gear on for Antler Pride Night NEXT Friday here at DCMS!
