Preparation, Motivation and Excellent Education: The DMS Way

Places We're Going...

Funny things tend to happen as you get a little older, and for me, I've realized that many things I've learned about life as an educator, I've learned from Dr. Seuss. For years his books have been relegated to elementary rhymes and gibberish, but it's something to be said about a person who can inspire hundreds of people through the colorful and wacky pages of a storybook. As parents, we've read these stories many times over to our young ones, and we've hoped that they have held on to at least a little of the words within the pages. After all, reading is the cornerstone of education; building successful students one vocabulary word at a time.

But then, as said earlier, funny things tend to happen as you get a little older. Our little ones become preteens, and they stop reading Dr. Seuss and become more interested in reading Facebook and Twitter, and between meetings, benchmarks and "teaching to test" methods, we as parents are left wondering if they are learning anything at all. As a parent with the above 3rd grader entering into his first experience with standardized testing, it's totally understandable.

In keeping with this small bit of anxiety (myself included) DMS will continue to prepare our students for the tasks at hand. As parents, and as always, we count on your help! We will continue our "PTO/Family Nights," exploring yet another subject being covered on GA Milestones (shout out to PTO for providing us with the tasty treats!) as well as continue to conduct Saturday School for extra help. Make sure you check out the remaining dates below.

I cannot promise you that your child will retain everything that they learn, but I CAN assure you that we as educators will continue to put forth our very best efforts to see that they do. We hope that you stay committed to the cause as we are, because with that partnership, success is definitely a place we're going.

Yes indeed.

99 and 4/4 percent guaranteed. :-)
