We are planning to have another campus beautification day!  Please consider joining us on

Sunday October 29th

from 1-4pm  

This is a joint effort with Davis Drive Elementary School where we will be spreading mulch, weeding, trimming bushes, and generally beautifying both campuses and the bus parking lot.  Please bring a wheelbarrow, work gloves, shovels, and any other landscaping accessories.  Any amount of time you are able to give in assisting with this project is greatly appreciated!  Mark your calendars!


Lockdown in October

During the second half of October, we will be having a Code Red Lockdown drill.  This exercise is a coordinated effort with WCPSS Security, DDMS Administration, and the Cary Police Department.  Staff members are trained on how to react during a lockdown drill and this exercise is a great way to ensure we are prepared in an emergency event.  On the day of the lockdown drill, Mr. Williams will immediately send parent message via email/text to notify you that we conducted the drill.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please let Mr. Williams know.


Publix Fundraiser

Publix Super Markets has a great program that will enable our school to make money every time we shop at Publix.  Pick up your Publix Partner Card in the front office at Davis Drive.  Just let your cashier know you have a card at the beginning of each checkout.

 


Yearbook Replay It App

The yearbook needs your help!  We want a picture perfect start to the school year!  Please download the Replay It app to your smartphone and start snapping pictures of exciting events at DDMS.  Follow directions on this Replay It flyer and start snapping, pictures put onto Repay It will go directly to yearbook.


WCPSS has created a mobile phone app to track your child’s bus.  Traditional calendar families are now about to access the app.  Please sign up at 

https://herecomesthebus.com/getting-started/

use your child’s WCPSS identification number, and utilize the CODE 67500 for Wake County and follow the directions.  This should be a great tool for you to track the location of your assigned bus route.

 


We will be collecting items for our Backpack Buddies Program throughout the school year.  You can drop the items off in the bins right outside of the Front Office anytime.  The Program provides extra food for the weekends for some of our DDMS families.  The items we need are as follows:

  • Knorr Rice or Pasta Packets
  • Chicken Packets or Cans
  • Oatmeal Packets
  • Boxes or Individual Cups of Mac and Cheese
  • Soup Boxes or Cans
  • Individual Packs or Plastic Jars of Peanut Butter
  • Microwave Popcorn
  • Granola or Nutrigrain Bars  

We will be doing a Food Drive the last Friday of every month, but you can always turn any of the these items in throughout the school year in the bins just outside of the Front Office. Thank you for your continued support!
