Outstanding Tiger Achievement
Girls Cross Country Finishes 4th in State
On Saturday, October 15th, our cross country teams travelled to Cochran, Georgia to compete in the Georgia Middle School Cross Country Championship. DCMS Tigers ran well and the girls finished ranked #4 overall for JV and Varsity teams.
Robotics Qualifies for State
On Saturday, October 15th DCMS Tiger Robotics Team travelled to Otwell Middle School where they competed in the FCS Middle School October Competition, which was the first robotics competition of the season. Team 3053A scored an impressive 130 points and finished in first place which qualified them for state competition coming in February. In order to compete at the state level, a team must earn first place in a regular season competition or qualify through a difficult point based system. Hundreds of teams compete to earn one of the coveted 15 qualifying spots. This was our first team to qualify for state and an outstanding accomplishment!
Fall Chorus Concert
On Monday, October 10th, our chorus joined DCJH and DHS choirs for an incredible performance. The DCMS Acapella Group made its debut after only 5 weeks of practice. Excellent work from all chorus members as well as Ms. Jennifer Palmer.
Report cards will be sent home Monday. Please be sure to check your child's backpack for their report card. You can also view all grades in PowerSchool via the Parent Portal.
