DMS Family

It is that time of year again that we are reminding each student and upcoming students of the necessary requirements that need to be met for the upcoming school year. Students that are currently in the 6th grade and will be uprising to the 7th grade will need to be sure to have an updated Tdap, which is a state required immunization. Once this has been obtained an updated form with proof of immunization will need to be provided to your school of attendance. All 7th grade students will need to ensure that an updated, non-expired immunization record is given to your school nurse. The previously mentioned forms can be sent in via email at

Thank you

Your DMS Nurse

Congratulations to Ms. Page for being named DMS Teacher of the Year!

FIRST Tech Challenge Robot Team

Calling all robot enthusiasts!

There is a new FIRST Tech Challenge robot team in Madison, and we are looking for team members.

This team will meet regularly during the summer, fall, and winter (2023-2024). We will design, build and program a robot, and will compete against other teams. Team members can expect to learn about CAD, 3D printing, programming, and general engineering concepts.

Anyone interested should contact me directly at to learn more.

Jetspress Camp

Did you know we have a top 10 high school film program at James Clemens? Jetspress alumni have enrolled in film schools nationwide including SCAD, Yale, and USC, and have former students working for companies like Marvel, Netflix, and CNN. Jetspress is looking for interested rising 5th-9th graders to try out filmmaking June 5-9. Over a week, your child will learn about scriptwriting, camera technique, audio, lighting, and editing as they work in a team to create their own film. Sign up today!

Important Reminders

  • Please ensure that your students adhere to the dress code. All clothing must meet appropriate guidelines as noted in the DMS Student Handbook and MCS Code of Conduct. Also, students may bring a jacket or sweater if they are cold; however, blankets and stuffed animals are not allowed as a cover at school.
  • Attendance is very important. Please be sure to send absence notes to whenever your student is absent from school.
  • Students should arrive to class on time and be in their seats when the tardy bell rings.
  • For morning drop off and afternoon dismissal, parking in the front northeast lot or in the loop at the front office will soon require a clearly marked parking pass. Those without this pass are asked to use the car line. Thanks to everyone for using the car line unless you have an "approved reason" from the DMS administration. Approved reasons are for SRO, medical/emergency, special needs, late arrival, etc. We are working for the safety of all of our students and staff at DMS. Thank you for your continued support!

Lost and Found

  • Please encourage your students to check the DMS Lost & Found near the front office if they have misplaced any items.
  • The Lost and Found will be cleared out on the first day of each month and unclaimed items will be donated to a worthy cause.
