|Dutchtown Middle Open House - 2014.08.15
Dutchtown Middle School
Open House 2014
On Saturday August 23, Dutchtown Middle will host its 2014 Open House. Parents are invited to visit our campus to meet your children’s teachers. This Open House will be different from those in the past in that we will not have a strict schedule for you to follow, but instead you will be able to tour the campus and visit with our faculty and staff. Teachers will have information about their classes that you will be able to view.
We will have three different informational meetings for the 1:1 program. Parents must attend a 1:1 meeting before students can be issued an IPad to take home. These meetings will be scheduled at 10:30, 11:30 and 1:00. Attendance at one meeting will suffice for those parents with multiple children at Dutchtown Middle. Contracts for 1:1 use will be completed after the meeting
We will also have performances by our eighth grade band, our cheerleaders and our dance team, the Eaglettes.
Our PIE organization will be on hand to sign up volunteers and to sell DMS sweatshirts.
We are excited about this new format and hope that you find it both enjoyable and informative.
|Information for First Day of School - 2014.07.30School Opening information
Student Schedules and team-specific supply lists will be mailed to parents on Thursday, July 31st.
What will happen on the first Day for Sixth Graders?
On the first day of school, all sixth grade students will be unloaded from the buses before any other students are discharged from the buses. Sixth grade students will be taken to the cafeteria by a teacher or administrator. Once all sixth graders are assembled in the cafeteria, we will call up sixth grade teachers individually and call for their students. As each teacher’s class is lined up, they will be taken to their first period classroom by the teacher. We will continue this process until all students are with their first period teacher.
Sixth grade students will remain with their pair of CORE teachers until third block, when they will be taken to the gym for their PE or Elective class. At the end of the third block, CORE teachers will return to the gym to pick up their classes.
At dismissal time, sixth grade students will be dismissed first to board buses.
Seventh and Eighth Grade Students
Seventh and eighth grade students will report to the first period class that is shown on their schedule. Faculty members and administrators will be stationed around the campus to help students locate their classrooms.
