From the PTA

November 1st 6:00 PM Parenting Quests will be presenting a one hour seminar for DRMS on  parenting Tweens and Teens. This local organization is nationally recognized and normally attending one of their seminars like this would cost between $25 and $98 dollars! Your PTA has worked to set this up so that all DRMS parents can join this event at NO COST to you. Parenting Quests' research on brain development as well as general research will help parents understand how your child's brain is working and growing, and how these changes affects their behavior and potentially their relationship with you! Kim Dillon and Dr. Leslie Marshall will be our presenter for this powerful evening event! 
Thursday, November 3rd is McTeacher Night at McDonald's! This fun event is one of our students' favorite nights as their teachers will be "working" at McDonald's and be their cashiers and servers! Invite all of your friends and family to join you at the McDonald's on the corner of Durant Road and Falls of the Neuse from 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM!

8/2 Crystal Coast Field Trip

I sent home a packet of information regarding our Crystal Coast and Tryon Palace field trip. The field trip will be April 19th and the cost is $81 for each student and $81 for each parent chaperone.

You have a couple of payment options if you would like you or your child to attend. You may pay the full $81 by cash/check or OSP. The second option is to do 3 installment payments of $27 each. The first payment if paying by cash/check would be due before we track out next Thursday, but if using OSP (online school payments) you would have until the 23rd to pay either the $81 or the first installment of $27.

We do have students that have a demonstrated financial need, and would need assistance obtaining scholarship funds to attend the trip. If you are willing to donate a trip to another student please send check or cash in with your student with a note detailing you would like the funds to go towards a scholarship.

If you do not intend to send your child on the field trip please have them return the blue form ASAP detailing that they will not be going.

Finally if you have a student that may need help obtaining the funds to attend the trip, please let me know. We do not want anyone left out due to financial circumstances.
