Principal's Message

Red Raider Friends and Family,


It was a great start to second semester! Teachers spent time reviewing their classroom rules, policies, and procedures. Students also discussed and completed activities to highlight our school motto -- Raiders are Respectful, Responsible, and Ready. Students enjoyed watching videos of their teachers and administrators acting like students and modeling what it means to be respectful, responsible, and ready. I am proud of all of the hard work our teachers do to prepare our students for success.


Also, DCS will be conducting lockdown drills over the next couple weeks. You may see an increased presence of emergency personnel at our schools. There will be limited access to the building while the school participates in the lockdown drill, and they typically last 30-45 minutes. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our students safe.


Finally, our DMS PTO Membership Fall/Winter Meeting was cancelled due to inclement weather. Please see the message below from Doug Bacchus, our PTO president. We are blessed beyond measure to have such an involved PTO Board.


Sincerely,


Luke Bergeson

Principal
