Parents Offering Support In Time Involvement Volunteering Enthusiasm.

Welcome to the Dover-Sherborn Middle School PTO Website!

Thank You Dover-Sherborn Community!

Together we raised over $28K for DSMS at our Derby Fundraiser. We raced; we raffled; we caught up with friends and met new ones. And, at the end of the night, Dover-Sherborn Middle School was stronger for it. Special thanks to our Derby Event Chair, Tindley Gilbert, for her hard work and leadership in making the event a spectacular success!

If you'd still like to contribute, you can do so at the link below.

Best use of funds is unrestricted, but POSITIVE also had a paddle raise for specific needs such as flexible furniture, a therapy dog, after school transportation for METCO students and outdoor lunch seating for students.

If you would like your contribution to go specifically for one of those initiatives, please note that with your contribution. See below for the paddle raise items.
