DALLASTOWN AREA MIDDLE SCHOOL
We are excited to welcome you to our Middle School!
Our goal is for students in grades 7-8 to feel welcomed and have the opportunity to explore multiple subjects and academic topics throughout the year.
We hope you are looking forward to the fresh start of a new year. We certainly look forward to smiling students returning to our halls, classrooms, and cafeteria very soon!
With Wildcat Pride,
Middle School Teams
New this year, all DAMS students will have a R.I.S.E. period 4 days per cycle. R.I.S.E. stands for Relationships, Intervention, Social-Emotional, Enrichment. Students will be able to receive academic support/enrichment, build a sense of community and belonging, and more. It is not a class, it’s an opportunity – and we are very excited about the possibilities! More details will be shared in the coming weeks.
Dallastown Area School District is proud to implement our CARES initiative through all levels of our students' academic journey. Through CARES we can help students become Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, Ethical, and Service-Minded members of the Dallastown community. During our school year students will be encouraged to show these qualities in their daily routines. Together we will show that a community that cares, follows the Wildcat Way.
A community that CARES follows the Wildcat Way!
