Principal's Message

Hello, this is Kristen Faircloth, principal at DRMS, with your weekly message.


We had a wonderful week back after the Thanksgiving break with a successful BAC meeting, celebrated our Spotlight on Student Amira Davis, engaged in a Cultural Arts performance, and participated at McTeacher's Night!  It is hard to believe we are close to the end of the 2nd quarter (Track 1 - Dec 5 and Tracks 2, 3, 4 - Dec 21) and December is here.  We would like to take this time to thank all of our student learners and families for all of their hard work and support as we are halfway through the school year.  


Thanks to our amazing PTA, we will be hosting the Scholastic Book Fair the week of December 3 - 7.  The book fair will be open from 7:45 AM - 3:30 PM.  The book fair will also be open during the band concert on Tuesday evening from 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM.  Students will visit the Scholastic Book Fair during their Social Studies classes.  The PTA is still in need of volunteers.  If you are able to help out at the book fair, please sign up here!/showSignUp/20f094eaca72ca20-drms/308295.  


Basketball season will begin this week.  Our girls and boys basketball team will play at home on Monday, December 3rd starting at 4:00 PM with the girls.  The teams will play away at Heritage on Thursday, December 6th.  Come out and support DRMS and the Athletics Booster Club on Saturday, December 8th at PDQ from 12:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Our band and chorus students will be having their fall/winter concerts this week. Band is on Tuesday December 4th at 6:30 p.m.  Chorus concert is at 7 p.m. on Wednesday December 5th. Our students have been working hard to prepare for these concerts and we hope to see as many of you there as we can to support them. 


Congratulations to Ms. Dawn Pittman, teacher assistant, for being selected as DRMS' Teacher Assistant of the Year!  We are so proud of Ms. Pittman and know she will represent us well.  


Our Track 1 Dolphins will track out on Wednesday, December 5th.  We wish all of our Track 1 families a wonderful holiday season and happy New Year.  We welcome our Track 2 Dolphins back on Thursday, December 6th.  


Thank you for supporting DRMS,

Kristen J Faircloth
