News and Notes from Doniphan Middle School

October 2021

DMS Parents & Students,

The school year is up and rolling and before we know it we'll have reached the end of the first quarter. This past week mid-term progress reports were sent home with students. I hope that each of you were pleased with the academic progress your child has made. If you feel that your child may need additional assistance we have after school tutoring available for them. You may sign your child up for tutoring at any time throughout the school year. Registration forms can be picked up in the DMS office or accessed using this link

We are excited to work with you and your child this year. Working together we can, we will, and we are making a difference for our kids!

We're looking forward to a great month of October!
