Our annual Hoops for Heart fundraiser kicked off this week. We have been the top performing middle school in the state of Kentucky for the past three years and look forward to topping the charts again this year. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for the American Heart Association. None of the money stays here at DCMS; this is a perfect way to teach community and citizenship as we help others. The fundraiser culminates on Friday, March 29 with our faculty/student basketball game. Any student who raises $10 or more will be admitted to the game. Students who raise $150 or more are eligible to play in the basketball game. If we meet our goal, Mr. Woods will watch the first quarter of the game from the wall where he will be duct-taped. There are other prizes as well. The easiest way to raise money is through online donations; your child should have been given a packet last Wednesday with this information included. If you need the information again, please call the school office and we will get the information to you.

Please come out and support DCMS on the following spirit nights at the local restaurants.

This year's KPREP Testing Window has been set. All middle schools will test starting Wednesday, May 8 - Tuesday, May 14. Please avoid scheduling appointments that will take your child away from school during those times. We look forward to celebrating great success!
