A Message from the Principal:
Dear DMS students and families,
Our School Theme has been selected for this year thanks to the votes of nearly all students and staff. The theme this year is... "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take". While this quote has obvious sports connotations, I challenged students and staff to consider how this theme can impact their interactions within our DMS community.
When I think of this quote, I think of a challenge to be brave, and take a risk, even if I might fail along the way. In our community, that can mean including a new friend, participating more actively in a difficult class, trying a new sport or activity we might not be good at, or anything else that asks us to step outside of our comfort zone and grow as a result. I hope to share more on the possibilities this theme can bring to our DMS community, and invite you to reflect upon it with us as well.
As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns by calling the DMS Main Office at 781-934-7640.
