Halloween Band Concert

Mr. Pwu's incredible Concert and Symphonic Band delivered a sinister set of Halloween treats for Dartmouth on Thursday. Students and Staff filled the Quad and were delighted with the amazing sounds and performance. This was our first live concert in almost two years and it set the stage for more performances to come. Thank you to Mr. Pwu and his incredible team for never giving up their quest for bringing music to our community.

Halloween Celebration Returns to DMS

Nothing says we are returning to "normal" more than a festive Halloween celebration at school. Students and Staff summoned their most creative spirits this past Friday and spent the day learning, connecting, and having an awesome time dressed in costumes. All types of themes were represented showcasing the rich individuality and creativity of our school community. The day wrapped up with an exciting 7th and 8th Grade Harvest Dance. DJ inspired music and lots of great treats provided a fun setting for our students to reengage with others. Thank you to our wonderful Cheer Team and parent volunteers who helped make this event happen.

Dangerous Products being Marketed as safe food items

The onslaught of dangerous products packaged to resemble safe food and drinks is a real threat to the safety of our children. Cookies, candies, and beverages manufactured with thc and cbd are now common place in our society and readily available to our children. Consumption of such products can cause dangerous and even life threatening side effects. Children often fall prey to the highly familiar packaging edible products use to market their products. These unregulated, potent, and often legal items can become addicting and lethal especially in the hands of unexpecting children. Please spend time with your child discussing the dangers of look-a-like products that might conceal dangerous drugs. The following articles provide information for parents about the dangers of edible products.
