Attention Parents of Students Who Will Be 
New To DSMS Next School Year:
Sidewinder Camp Registration has begun! The Sidewinder Camp provides incoming seventh grade students (and new 8th grade students) at Desert Shadows with the opportunity to meet new friends and become familiar with the campus before school starts. Each activity is designed to ease any anxieties that students may have with coming to a new campus. Students will be placed in groups led by current Desert Shadows teachers as well as former DSMS students. Throughout the camp, students will learn about the various activities and different ways to get involved on campus. Campers will also get an "inside scoop" of school procedures and will get tips for the first day of school. This year, the camp will be on August 6th from 8AM-1PM.
