  • Volunteers Needed

    Posted by Spencer Ziegler on 11/28/2018

    The PTA is looking for volunteers for a pair of events:

    • The book fair runs from December 3-7th and we could use some help operating it. If you're free, please consider signing up for a slot here.
    • On Wednesday, December 5, we will continue our DRMS tradition of providing teachers and staff with a goodie bag of homemade cookies. If you can make a batch of cookies and provide (at least) 3 dozen, we would appreciate it greatly. Cookies are due when the 8:15 a.m. bell rings on Wednesday, December 5, so that Santa's helpers can fill the bags and present them to the teachers! You can signup to help out right here.

    RISING 6TH GRADE PARENTS 

     

    Welcome to Durant Middle School!  Durant Middle School is a great place to be! Our dedicated PTA strives to support our students and staff in a variety of ways.  We contribute financially by supplementing teacher mini-grants, supplies and equipment. We host the school Book Fair, Spirit Nights (including McTeacher Night), Box Tops, Teacher Luncheons and Teacher Appreciation week, 8th Grade end of the year activities, and Cultural arts presentations/performances among many other programs. 

     

    We invite you to join, and become involved in the PTA. Whatever your talent, interest, or time availability, we can help you find a perfect fit.   We would LOVE to plug you in to the Durant community!  You can fill out the PTA membership form when you receive your orientation packet or when your student brings it home at the beginning of the school year.  We are excited that this year you will be able to join both through the paper form as well as directly online through our MemberHub site link https://drms.memberhub.com/dues.  We recommend that every parent join the PTA.  The membership dues contribute to the funds we have to support the school.  Membership is also the best way to stay informed of all the important PTA information throughout the year.
