PTA Letter

DRMS Families-

Spring is here in North Carolina and we are in the 4th and final quarter of the school year!  Lots going on as your PTA works to finish out the school year, too!

First, our annual Teachers’ Appreciation week is coming up the week of May 8th – 12 for Tracks 1,2 & 4!  (May 22nd -26th for Track 3) Your PTA has some nice things planned for our teachers and staff, and we hope your student will recognize their teachers, too!  More details regarding what we will be doing will be on our Facebook page in the next few days!

We are in full swing with our Spring Sports season!  There is still time to come out and cheer on your Softball, Boys’ Soccer and Track & Field athletes! The full spring Sports schedule is on the DRMS website under Athletics!

Do you have a student who likes to sing, dance, can tell a good joke or maybe even juggle? Then he or she may want to partake in our Student Showcase! This fun event in scheduled for May 16th!  Students interested in auditioning for this event should see our Chorus teacher Ms. Micks for more details and a permission slip.

We are gearing up for the end-of-the-year 8th grade dance and picnics!  These are BIG events for our 8th graders as they are about to finish their time at DRMS and move on to High School.  Students from DRMS head in many different directions and these events are wonderful traditions at our school! We need parent volunteers to help with both the dance and the picnics. Please see our Chair Nicole Luna to get involved! .  We particularly need parents of 6th and 7th graders to help out with these events!

Last, we are in the process of getting a new PTA Executive Board set up for the 2017-2018 school year. Whether you can volunteer often or infrequently, there is a role for you! Many of our PTA Board members are leaving DRMS this year, and we want to ensure we leave our wonderful school in great shape with parent support!  Email me if you want more information!

Here’s to a fantastic final quarter for your student!
