DMS Weekly Family Newsletter


Conductor Corner

Hello Families!

I can't believe that November is already coming to a close and we are deep into the holiday season. As I think about Thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to express how thankful I am to be able to spend my days with your children. I truly believe that we have the best students here at DMS and this school family would not be the same without your child! Each student brings something unique to our school and I feel so blessed to have each one here. I see students do amazing things every day, from learning something new to doing acts of kindness. I will never take my responsibility here at Durand Middle School lightly and I want you all to know just how important your children are to me. I am thankful for the students, staff, and families of DMS! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and I look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday!
