From the Principal’s Desk….

February was quite a month of snow interruptions! We are happy to be back at school and we look forward to completing school-wide PARCC testing March 9-12. The “A” and “B” days at DMS will continue to follow the BCPS designated dates that were sent to you earlier this year. Please note that fewer grades will be posted on BCPS One during this time due to time being spent on PARCC testing. If you have further questions about testing, please email Ms. Scott, Assistant Principal at

We were happy to welcome Dr. Dance who visited DMS on March 4, 2015 to present our school with our Lighthouse STAT banner. He also met with a number oof sixth graders who were excited to be part of the event. The Lighthouse School process will include training for administrators and staff which will start this spring. In the meantime, we are moving forward with creating more student-centered learning environments using creative seating, adding areas with rugs to classrooms; stand up desks for students who benefit from that option, and developing more collaborative activities that require inquiry on the part of our students.
