    Dear Parents of DVMS,
     
    We are two weeks away from the end of the school year. Here are a few items you will want to know:
     
    1) Rebranding: Your final vote is due this weekend. It is exciting to be a part of rebranding DVMS with a new school name, mascot and colors. Your final vote will take place at the following link: https://forms.gle/X37UvWVgLHMTP5G59
     
    2) 8th Grade Promotion Tickets: Promotion is coming up on Wednesday, May 18th at 7:30 at Barry Goldwater High School Gym. Because the gym seats 1,200 people, we will need to limit tickets to 4 per family. Tickets will be given to students in their 7th period class on Monday. If you have any you won't be using, please return them by Friday so we can give them to other families needing more.
    + Remember, students must meet the academic and behavior requirement to participate in promotion.
     
    3) Summer Sports Camp: DVMS is offering a FREE summer sports camp for current 6th & 7th grade students who will be attending DVMS next school year. It's a four week camp focusing on basketball, volleyball and wrestling. Students will improve skills and have fun playing as well. See the flyer sent home with students and go to the link to sign your student up. You can also sign up at the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScBP5BWa1YODVDto52pKAOOayvINW8eZd-9mCJQBkfJuO2dmw/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1&flr=0
     
    4) End of Year Events: Students enjoyed Main Event this past week and we were glad to provide it for them. Still to come:
    * Michael Lahaye: A military veteran will be on campus to speak to our students about his experience in the military and leadership.
    * Career Exploration Opportunity: Our teachers, Jeremie Collins and Eddie James will be working with students on exploring possible careers for their future.
    * Student Government is planning an 8th grade dance on May 17th, during the school day.
    + Participation requires good school behavior in order to participate in these events.
