DMHS Updates March 18

Posted 03/19/2016

Happy Spring Break! Hopefully you will all have a chance to get some much needed rest during this next two weeks. School is back in session on Monday, April 4.

PARCC Assessment: This week we completed the mathematics portion of the PARCC testing. Congratulations to all the students for being so responsible and respectful during the test. The ELA portion and 8th grade science portion will occur in mid-April.
Past Due Work: We spent quite a bit of time this last few days helping students to get organized so that they can complete any work that is due but not turned in, also known as  “missing work”. Please check your students electronic portfolio to see if they have work due. If you need a reminder on how to access your student’s portfolio, just email me with your gmail address and I will re-share your student’s electronic portfolio with you. Please make sure to create time with your student over this next two weeks to make sure all missing work is completed and ready to turn in on April 4.
All students will have literature book reading to do over break and should know how much they need to read and what type of notes will need to be completed.
2016/17 Calendar: The new calendar is on our website: Go to the website, click on the calendar tab and then click on agenda for a listing of all of our dates for next year. Thank you to Carol for working so hard to update our website. Check it out – it looks really great!
Thank you. Have a wonderful spring break,
