DRMS Principal's Message

Hello!  This is Kristen Faircloth, proud principal at Durant Road Middle School, with your weekly reminders.


What another great week at DRMS!  The Spring Sports Awards took place on Monday, May 13, 2019.  Congratulations to the athletes and coaches for a successful season.  A huge shout out to Trina Cicco for an phenomenal job as AD this school year.  She has been organized, positive and detailed oriented which has made every season/event run smoothly.  The spring musical Hairspray took place this week and it was AMAZING!  The student talent was unbelievable!  Everyone got swept away as the cast took us back to 1962 Baltimore, where a girl named Tracy had big hair and even bigger dreams!  Thank you to MaryRobert McGrath and Tyler Clark for their time and work with the students and the musical.  


Starting on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 our track 1 Dolphins will have the opportunity to show us what they know by taking EOGs, EOC, and NCFEs!  Students do much better when they can test with their class/peers as opposed to taking a make-up test.  Thank you for making sure your children arrive at school on time during the weeks of testing.  A good night's sleep and breakfast have also been shown to help student performance in testing.  Track 1 testing will take place from Tuesday, May 21, 2019 through Friday, May 24, 2019 with make ups on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.  Tracks 2, 3 & 4 testing will begin on Monday, June 17, 2019.  


Monday, May 27, 2019 is a holiday for all students and staff as we celebrate Memorial Day!


Thank you for supporting DRMS,

Kristen Faircloth
