Principal's Message

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


We had amazing 6 Grade Transitional Camps on July 18, 2019 as well as 7th & 8th Grade Academies on July 25, 2019 with incredible attendance.  There were over 200 6th grade students, over 150 7th grade students, and over 150 8th grade students attend on their assigned day.  Families had an opportunity to meet their teachers, walk through their schedules, learn about the curriculum, sign up for important resources, engage in teambuilding and enjoy an ice cream social.  Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for these events.  We believe the groundwork has been laid for a very successful 2019-2020 school year.   


Monday, July 29, 2019 is the first day of school for all Dolphins at Durant Road Middle School.  Students may begin arriving on campus at 7:45 AM with instruction beginning at 8:15 AM.  Team lists will be posted in the hallways and staff will be available to assist and guide students to their destination.  All Dolphins will receive a schedule in their first period class.  


Please be on the lookout for many important handouts and information coming home during the first week of school.  Fall picture day will be on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 for all students.  Picture day envelopes will be sent home the first week of school.  This is the picture that will do in the yearbook, so dress to impress!


Let's have the best year ever,

Kristen Faircloth
