Who's ready to Hula?!🌺
Come hungry because Kona Delight and Wave Beach Cafe will be serving up authentic mixed plate meals. If you're looking for something sweet, grab a shave ice from Kona Ice! 10% of all sales will be donated to the PTO.
We hope to see everyone in their favorite Hawaiian-themed attire!
This is a free event for all families.
PTO Membership is highly encouraged. 😁
Attendance is Crucial to Student Success!
To partner with the school, we encourage all families to schedule regular dentist and doctor's visits outside of the school day. We understand that occasionally students will miss school, and when they do, please contact the Attendance Line at 623-445-3590 to report their absence. Mrs. Anh Tran will review all attendance calls and report absences accordingly. She may also be reached at 623-445-3506 if you need assistance.
If you need to CHANGE THE END OF DAY TRANSPORTATION, you must contact the front office prior to 2:30pm M-Th and 1:00pm on Early Release Fridays. No changes will be honored beyond these times.
*Missed graded student assignments will either be available in Canvas or provided by the teacher depending on the grade level.
Nurse Lisa is here to help!
Does your child need to take medication at school?
Please contact Nurse Lisa to learn what supports may be available to your student.
*All medication from home must be administered by a school nurse or designated staff member. Medications are not provided by the school. Please do not send medication to campus with your student.

🥎⚾ MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETICS 🥎⚾
6th-8th Grade Fall Sports: Baseball and Softball
DMS fall sports will be starting soon. Tryouts for baseball and softball will be the week of August 14th from 3:00-5:00. To try out for any DMS sport you will have to have a physical from a doctor and have Register My Athlete (RMA) completed and submitted for me to approve. Physicals are good for 1 calendar year. You can scan or take a picture of the documents to upload them to RMA. All parts of Register My Athlete have to be submitted and approved to be able to tryout. Everything you need is on our athletic website under the RMA and physical information page. Both links are below. If you have already completed RMA this year, you don’t need to do it again. Please make sure that you’ve checked baseball or softball on RMA.
We are continuing to allow 6th graders to participate in athletics, this is to help with our low numbers and make sure that we can field all of our teams. 6th graders can’t make the team over a 7th or 8th grader, but if we have low numbers they will have the opportunity to make the team and contribute.
If you have any questions you can contact Mr. Booth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
