First Day of Middle School!

I hope everyone had an amazing first day of middle school.  I have enjoyed meeting my new students .. I am so excited for this school year at Durham Middle School – THE BEST IN THE WEST!!

Remember if you have not returned your forms – clinic card, BYOD and Receipt of Parent Information – please bring them back to your homeroom teacher ASAP.

In all classes, we learned names and I read a letter about myself to class.  Students wrote a letter me about themselves .. if they didn’t finish it in class, it was homework to complete.
