Principal's Message

I feel confident that 2016-2017 will be a great year at Dodge County Middle School.  We are excited about new initiatives such as PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports), block scheduling, and the many other great things taking place at DCMS.  We are also excited about the efforts being made to give our school a new and a more inviting appearance.

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with our parents and the community to ensure that our students reach their full potential.   We feel that a strong positive relationship between the school, parents, and the community will make a great difference in each child’s education and success.  We want our parents, students, and community to feel welcomed, connected, and a vital part of Dodge County Middle School.

To help us to take DCMS to an even higher level, we ask that you and your child please keep the following items in mind to ensure your child’s success throughout the year:

·         Be present each day and on time for each class.

·         Be prepared for class and have the necessary materials.

·         Study each night and complete all homework assignments.

·         Be familiar with the student handbook especially new initiatives such as PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports), dress code changes, and other expectations.

·         Look for communication through the agenda, notes, texts, and/or emails that will keep you informed regarding upcoming events, activities, or other announcements.

In an effort to increase communication this year, please take time to stay informed about your child and DCMS by visiting our website at http://dcms.dodge.k12.ga.us/, signing up for remind (to receive teacher and school texts), signing up for a Power Parent account (to keep up with your child’s grades and attendance), keeping your phone number updated to receive One Call Now messages, or by communicating with the school or your child’s teacher via email or phone calls.

We are excited about the new possibilities and the educational challenges that await us this year! The staff, Assistant Principal Mrs. Marcie Jones, and myself feel privileged to be a part of Dodge County Middle School.  We would like to thank parents/guardians and the community for your support and look forward to working with everyone during the 2016-2017 school year.
