Congratulations to Mrs. Garvey's Advisory Class for winning the Winter Box Top Contest!!

DMS Students helped us raise over $800 in Box Tops this year - Wow!
Please keep clipping your box tops all summer long - the next contest will be Fall 2017! This is a great fundraiser for PTSA and a fun competition for staff and students every year.
Our main fundraiser is by donation! PTSA receives 100% of the funds! No selling products!
We fund incentives for the FLIGHT program, grade level socials, tailgate gatherings with LMS, testing snacks, staff appreciation week, conference meals, book club books, nurse supplies, student-voted school gift, Life celebration carnival and end of school celebration along with other items that help support the students and staff at DMS.

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.
