Students Make a Difference!

The January PTSA meeting involved a student member vote.   DMS PTSA student members were able to vote on a school improvement project that would be funded by PTSA.   Students voted between adding new lounge furniture in the front entry way or charging stations in the hallway.     It was a close race but the charging stations won the vote!   Mr. Madsen's 8th grade class is going to work on the project as part of their class work this spring!  PTSA will fund the building materials for the stations.
