Please join us in welcoming many baby chicks to the fourth-floor conference room. Staff members brought eggs in as students began to learn about the life cycle of a chicken. We still have many eggs in the incubator, some are future ducklings! To see our chicks up close, click on the image.
DMPS will again offer breakfast and lunch over the summer months to children 18 and younger. The number of sites has grown, and so have the number of meals served. Last summer, DMPS staff fed children 28,722 breakfasts and 79,698 lunches. DMPS has sponsored a summer meal program for more than 30 years. Click on the headline for more information and a list of sites.
In spite of the debate about when the school year should start, at DMPS we wonder: when does it end? That’s because activities take place at our schools nearly every day of the year.
