Good Afternoon Diamondback Family,

I wanted to share with you how excited our staff is with the return of our students tomorrow. We have been working hard this summer, getting ready for an exciting school year. The staff at Dessau Middle School have been in professional development the last four days, learning new and exciting strategies, that your students will benefit from in the coming year. Our teachers can’t wait to deliver engaging and student-centered instruction this coming school year. 

Tomorrow morning, our doors will open at 7:55 a.m. Students will enter the Juilliard Hallway upon arrival. Our bus riders will enter the Juilliard Hallway from the front of the building, while our parent drop off students will enter the Juilliard Hall form the back of the building. All students will go through our small gym to receive their schedule, before being guided to the cafeteria for breakfast. After breakfast, students will go to their designated hallway.  Our first bell rings at 8:15 a.m. for the students to go to class. Parents will have the opportunity to walk their child to the gym, and say goodbye as students enter the gym.

During the first three days of school, all of our students will be participating in our Diamondback Camp. During the camp, students will learn what being a PRO looks like and how they can be Prepared, Respectful, and Orderly every day at Dessau Middle School. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in team building exercises with their classes. We are excited about bringing this opportunity to our students.

On Tuesday afternoon, we had several students attend our first Dessau Leadership Academy. It was wonderful to see our students here and willing to assume a leadership role within our campus. We will have additional meetings throughout the year, as we look at the skillsets of an effective leader. If your child is interested in joining, please ask them to see one of our Administrators at Dessau Middle School.

Looking ahead to some upcoming dates, our Open House will be on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 6:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, and hear their expectations. 

We looking forward to seeing all of our students tomorrow, and the exciting possibilities this year will bring.
