Our first full week of school in the new year has been fabulous. It has been great to see all of our students focused on truly committed to their learning this week. Please give them a pat on the back from all of us for the great week we had. We also want to congratulate our 8/1 students for leading all of DRMS in PowerPod totals. These are rewards given by staff members when students are demonstrating our proper PBIS DRMS behaviors and our 8/1 students are demonstrating fabulous behaviors within classes and hallway transitions. Thanks so much to all our students for modeling these excellent behaviors. 


Students brought home their 2nd Quarter Report Cards on Friday 1/11. We ask that parents sign the cover letter and return it. If you have any questions regarding anything please let us know and we will be happy to help. 


We are excited to announce that for the 2019-2020 school year, Durant Road Middle School and Durant Road Elementary School will be a Single Track 4 Calendar! For more information, please see our website.
