DMS Testing Information and Other Dates
Posted On:
Thursday, April 12, 2018

The next few weeks of school will go by so fast!  Students, you’ll find yourself sleeping late, hanging out with friends and playing Fortnite for three days straight, thinking about summer break and all the fun it brings.  I, on the other hand, find myself wanting to let all students, parents and guardians know about things going on here at DMS before the school year ends.

First and most important: we will be taking the Spring portion of our Scantron Test. Here is the testing schedule:

April 17th sixth grade Reading            April 24th sixth grade Math

April 18th seventh grade Reading        April 25th seventh grade Math

April 19th eighth grade Reading          April 26th eighth grade Math

April 20th seventh grade Science

Please make every effort to be at school and on time for testing days.

Other Dates & Times:

Thursday, April 19th, starting at 5:00 p.m., we will host a “Listening Tour” at DMS, in the library, to discuss Bullying, Attendance and School Safety. Immediately following the discussion, DMS teachers will host “Math Night” from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. It will be a time of games, food and learning all wrapped into one.

Exam Exemptions: 8 absences and an A average in the class or 4 absences and a B average in the class. A student may not exempt an exam if they have an unexcused absence. This year I am offering another chance for exempting exams. A student that does not qualify for exemptions described above may exempt an exam if they try their best and show 100 point growth on their Spring Scantron Test next week. Students who show 100 point growth on Math Assessment may exempt Math and Science exam. Students who show 100 point growth on Reading Assessment may exempt English and History exam.
