We welcome parents/guardians to come and observe your student.  The best times to come observe are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:15 – 10:15 am.  Please email Carol at to set up an appointment.

School Volunteer Opportunities:

One of the best ways for families to feel part of the school community is through individual and community volunteer events such as school work days. Here is a list of current parent involvement opportunities:!/showSignUp/20F0D45AFAF28A6FF2-volunteer

DMHS follows the DPS Volunteer Process.  If you would like to volunteer on a regular basis, please fill out a DPS volunteer background check.

Collaborative School Committee (CSC):

We also welcome all community members to be apart of the Collaborative School Committee (CSC): The committee of parents and community members will meet on the monthly to discuss school progress and make recommendations to the principal.  They will assess school performance based on agreed upon outcomes that include academic goals, student well-being and community involvement.
