Dinner Dilemma  #10 is due tomorrow!

Friday is Spirit Day!  Wear your NFL gear and bring your $1.00 donation.

We still need supplies for the students center.  Please bring in pencils, pens, paper, band aids, and tissues.


Dinner Dilemma #10 was introduced.  Students answered the questions which are due on Thursday along with the parent reflection.

Don’t forget to bring in your donations for Pennies for Patients – deadline is 2/7.

Friday is a Relay for Life fundraiser.  Wear your favorite NFL jersey, hat, or both!  Remember to make your $1.00 donation to Relay for Life


Today, students received an order form for tickets to the April 13th Atlanta Braves Game!  The DMS Band will be performing the National Anthem. All Durham students and their family and friends are encouraged to come out and cheer on the DMS Band and the Braves.  If you would like tickets, please fill out the order form,  make your checks payable to DMS, and turn them in by February 27th.

We turned in $14.13 more toward Pennies for Patients! The donation deadline is February 7th.

The Student Supply Center is woefully low on lined notebook paper, pencils, kleenex, bandaids, and hand sanitzer!  A donation of any of these items would be greatly appreciated.


Today students enjoyed doughnuts and juice in homeroom as my way of showing them how proud I am that we met our classroom goal of $60.00 toward Pennies for Patients.  The deadline for donations is February 7th, so our class has set a new goal of $120.00!  Keep those pennies coming!!!
