DRMS Principal's Message

Hello, this is Kristen Faircloth, principal at Durant Road Middle School, with your September 14 weekly message.


Monday, September 16, 2019 is Instructional Assistant Appreciation Day!  We have amazing Instructional Assistants at Durant Road Middle School who make a huge difference in children's lives.  We couldn't do it without them!


The WCPSS District 3 Board Advisory Council (BAC) meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 16, 2019 at 6:00 PM at Abbott's Creek Elementary.  Board of Education member, Roxie Cash, will give an update on school board business and discuss the role of the BAC.  This is an open meeting and all are welcome and encouraged to attend.


A huge thank you to all who participated in our GoPlaySave fundraiser this school year!  We had 31 students who sold 3 or more books.  We will celebrate the 31 students on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 with a popsicle/ice cream party during their lunch.  Way to go Dolphins!


Our first PTA Spirit Night is Tuesday, Sept. 17!  Manhattan Pizza will donate back to our school 20% of all sales to DRMS families from 5-8 pm.  Applies to dine-in, pickup and delivery orders!  You’ll need to show the restaurant a DRMS flyer when you order – flyers will be sent home with students this week. You can also get an electronic copy from the PTA website as well as on our FacebookTwitter, or Instagram accounts and show it on your phone.  If you’re ordering online, no flyer is needed but please enter DRMS in the comment screen so our school can get credit for that sale.


The DRMS PTA is in need of volunteers for our school beautification project Saturday, Sept. 21. You can sign up to help here:


Fall Picture make-up day is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, 2019 during first period.  Only students who were absent on the original picture day and those who enrolled after August 27th will be photographed.  


Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28, 2019 for our 2nd annual athletics fundraiser car wash!  Come get your cars washed by your favorite fall athletes!!  The car wash will take place from 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM at the Dunkin' Donuts on the corner of Capital & Durant Road.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 29, 2019 from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM for Family Math Night!  You will have the opportunity to learn more about the math curriculum, how to assist your learner at home, and engage in math activities with the whole family.  Come out to DRMS on October 29, 2019 for mathematical fun and food!
