BCPS Stakeholder Survey Needs Your Input!

Feedback from students, parents, community members, and staff helps to guide school improvement in many areas. As of today, the BCPS Stakeholder Survey is available and only takes five minutes to complete. The survey is available in 16 languages.  School-based feedback is used at Dumbarton to update our School Progress Plans and reflect on our programs.  Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and let us know how we are doing!  Our students will be completing the survey during social studies classes this year.  We sincerely appreciate your support in providing this invaluable data.


Interim Reports Arrive Home on February 22

This is the time of year when grades can slip and student focus can wane.  Cold, dark nights can decrease student motivation and determination.  Thank you for ensuring your child is getting enough sleep, quiet time without electronics, quality time with family, and opportunities for exercise.  Arranging for conferences can be accomplished by emailing teachers directly during the quarter. We sincerely appreciate the positive coaching and support you provide to your children as they pursue academic excellence each day at Dumbarton.


February and March Events

Our renovations continue to be ahead of schedule with four state of the art science rooms scheduled to open in late-February. Final stages of the renovations are expected to be completed by April.  Our annual DMS School Play will be performed on March 8 and 9.  Furthermore, join us for our music recital on March 13 at 4PM.  Lastly, the PTA Lion’s Den Committee hosts our annual Movie Night on March 16th which is always well attended. We look forward to seeing members of our community at these wonderful events!
