Craft Club is working to create Holiday Gift Cards for the children at Cook's Children Hospital. Our 1st project has started with the students creating Christmas cards for the children in Cook's Children's Hospital. We are also looking to create a beautiful gift for the teachers and staff. Any donations of scrapbook paper, markers, pipe cleaner, yarn, etc for creating crafts will be greatly appreciated. The students will also learn to bake and decorate Christmas cookies. Recipes, food items for baking, and Christmas treat bags are just a few of the items we are looking for. And we are looking for adult assistance. Contact Ms. Bailey if interested.

Theatre Arts - Awesome accomplishment

Last Friday the Theatre Department participated in the District UIL One-Act Play Contest at Timberview HS. The DJMS production of Shipwrecked! was awarded FIRST PLACE as well as honors for Best Actor: Cole Collier; All-Star Cast: Andrew Nordwick, Kenneth Turnipseed, & Zachary Rhodes; Honorable Mention Cast: Madalyn Buckley; and Honor Crew: Tyler Ferris. Ms. Baker is extremely proud of all of the hard work put in by the cast & crew and of the way they represented DJMS.

Arrival and Dismissal at DJMS

We are doing a great job as we begin this new year. Thank you for being patient as everyone learns the new routines and procedures for arrival and dismissal. Just a few reminders to keep in mind as we move forward this year.


  • Students are to be dropped off in front of the building for arrival. The building opens at 8:10 each day. If arriving for a sport, follow the coaches directions for arrival.
  • Students are to be picked up on the side or in front of the school. This is the Broad St. side or the Day Miar side of the school.
  • Follow the flow of traffic through the parking lot
  • Students walking home or being picked up by their parents will leave the building from the front. Students are not to leave the building from side or back exit areas.
  • Keep the circle drive clear for our designated cars and buses for that area.
  • Keep the area in front of the dumpsters clear. This is a no parking or standing zone.
  • The bus lane is in the back of the building near the football field. This is for buses only.
  • If driving in the back, be mindful that students are crossing to the field for practice before and after school.

Dress Code

Our dress code has changed a little this year. The students are following it well as we begin the year. Please remember the rips or tears in jeans must be below fingertip length when arms on down by the side. This follows the same guideline as the length of shorts and dresses. To see the full dress code, visit the link below.


Bandanas are not allowed has headbands.
