February 3 -7
Red Raider Friends and Family,
Please see below for this week's events. We have a lot of exciting things happening.
Our DMS Curriculum Fair will be Tuesday, Feb 4 from 6-7pm in the DMS gym. This is for students attending DMS the 2020-21 school year. Our teachers will provide families with information about next year's classes. This will allow our students and parents to discuss class options for the next school year. Students will begin registering for classes later in the week (see below). We will visit our fifth graders at their schools on Feb 10-12 to help them register for classes.
The Curriculum Fair is not conducive to individual student conferences. However, we will have counselors available at our Orientation table if you would like to make appointments for a later time. We will also have personnel set up at our Orientation tables to ask more specific scheduling questions for next year.
I look forward to seeing everyone Tuesday, Feb 4 from 6-7pm.
