There will be no CLC the last week of school (May 21-May 24)


Last day of school carnival information:

Every student will be given a “carnival card” during 7th period the day of the carnival with each of the food/treat stations listed once allowing each student ONE of each if they choose. For the stations of water, cotton candy, popcorn and frozen treat (ICEE POPS) when the student receives this item, the space will be marked off.  
For cake walk and ring toss, students cards will only be marked when they win, allowing the student to claim this prize as well. Students can play multiple times however they cannot claim an additional prize unless they present a ticket upon winning.

If students want a second item/ or turn at any food station they will need to purchase tickets at the music/prize station.  Additional tickets will ONLY be sold in increments of 2/$1 and each station will cost (1) additional ticket to play ($.50). 
When students are done with their play card (either they have used up all spots or are no longer wanting to use it) to help with recycling, they will turn their play cards into the music station and we will be entering a drawing for prizes.

Thanks again and we are looking forward to an awesome last day of school!!

Welcome to the Dawes Middle School website.  At Dawes, our priority is to engage every student every day through building positive relationships, intentional teaching and learning, and fostering hope within our community.  Our highly qualified and dedicated staff members believe each student can and will meet our defined student learning goals:

1.  All students will improve their academic achievement in all subject areas

2.  All students will cultivate effective literacy skills.

3.  All students will enter high school with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to be successful.

In order to accomplish these goals we will collaborate with students, families, and our community partners to “relentlessly engage” each student in developing a clear blueprint for a successful life.  All Dawes students will know who they are, what they want to become, and how to obtain the skills, knowledge, and experiences to achieve their personal goals.
