Message from Superintendent Coleman

The recent unrest in our capital has deepened the level of stress and anxiety across our country. Reaching out to loved ones, engaging in cooperative activities within your family, and limiting your child's exposure to all of forms of media will help us navigate these tumultuous times.

Another Amazing Dartmouth Middle School Second Harvest Food Drive

The forces of kindness and love took center stage this past month as the Dartmouth Community raised over $30,000 for the Second Harvest Food Drive. Though this was the first year our library wasn't full to the brim with barrels of canned and packed food, our students, families, and staff donated enough money to help Second Harvest provide the equivalent of 60,000 cans of food for community members in need. That's not just amazing, it's the Dartmouth Way!

International Day at Dartmouth

There's no better way to show what makes America great than to celebrate the incredible variety of cultures that makes us one. Students and staff are kicking off the new year this Friday with a spirit day focused on taking pride in our individual heritage. We look forward to fun and individuality.
