MIDDLE SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Summer Reading - Assessment
WEBPAGE ANNOUNCEMENT
A PARENT LETTER WILL BE MAILED HOME WITH REPORT CARDS
(week of June 16th)
 
 
May 27, 2014
Dear DMS Families:
 
            Please be advised that your 7th and/or 8th grade student(s) will be required to participate in our new summer reading list. To insure flexibility, our list will be extensive by providing students with a variety in order to choose a desired book.
 
      Our technician will place Accelerated Reading (AR) software on all 30 computers in our computer lab.  This way, our reading teachers will be able to take one class at a time to complete their summer reading requirements.
 
      Upon return to the 2014-2015 school year; students will be assessed on the book(s) he or she read during the first week of school according to the below criteria:
 
 
·         Honors 1 and 2 will be required to read 2 books (one from the fiction list, one from the non- fiction list)   
·         Average students will be required to read 1 book (either fiction or non-fiction from the list)
·         Itinerant students will be required to read 1 book (either fiction or non-fiction from the list); unless otherwise specified in your child's IEP. Any questions, please contact your child's Learning Support teacher.
 
Online Grades Instructions
These steps are: 
1. Go to the portal and complete the initial registration. 
2. Your registration then shows under the "pending" heading on our end in the system.  This is checked daily.  We then approve your registration. This puts you in the approved list in the system, and generates an email to the address you provided.  The school’s part is done at this point.
3. You have to click the link in the email to complete the activation. This changes them from "approved" to "active" in the system.  You have not completed the registration process until this email link is confirmed by you.  You will not be able to view anything in the system until you are activated.

WNEP2 Highlighted our School
Please visit the below link to view the WNEP video that highlights our school from last week and was shown as part of the halftime show during this past Friday night's football game that was televised on WNEP2. They send their apologies stating that some of the footage was cut off during the televised halftime show.

Thank you to our teachers and students who participated in this even if it didn't make the final cut of editing. Your support was greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
