Principal’s Roar

March has been a busy month for DVMS Dragons and I am very proud of your efforts and achievements this month. 

We kicked the month off with a drive for most-needed items to benefit Crossroads Mission and for three weeks our Dragons collected over 200 items and $ 645.00 in cash donations. Your efforts will have a positive impact on our community and you should be very proud. 

Academically, the 8th grade Dragons fired it up and placed 3rd statewide in the iCivics Tournament in their very first year competing! Kudos to all the 8th grade Dragons that participated and specially Ms. Curiel for all the hard work that went into making sure our students were well prepared for the event. 

Also, all DVMS Dragons continue to move up the ranks in the Vocabulary Bowl competing with schools nationwide. During the Vocabulary Bowl March Madness, our students’ great efforts placed them in 1st place in all schools in Arizona and 7th in their division nationwide!  Thank you Mr. Bosman and Ms. Moran for all your hard work, Go Dragons!

State Assessments start this week with all 8th grade students participating in the AzSci field test, let’s Fire it Up and end the week on a high note! 

Don’t forget,  Spring Break runs from March 29th through April 2nd, and  school resumes on Monday, April 5th for  both On-campus and At-home Dragons. I cannot wait to see what you will accomplish in April. 

Have a fun and safe break, Dragons!

Marzo ha sido un mes muy ocupado para los Dragones de DVMS y estoy muy orgulloso de sus esfuerzos y logros este mes.

Comenzamos el mes con una colecta de artículos más necesarios para beneficiar a Crossroads Mission y durante tres semanas nuestros Dragones recolectaron más de 200 artículos y $ 645.00 en donaciones en efectivo. Sus esfuerzos tendrán un impacto positivo en nuestra comunidad y deberían estar muy orgullosos.

¡Académicamente, los Dragones de octavo grado encendieron a la competencia y quedaron en tercer lugar en todo el estado en el Torneo iCivics en su primer año compitiendo! Felicitaciones a todos los Dragones de octavo grado que participaron y especialmente a la Srta. Curiel por todo el arduo trabajo que hizo para asegurarse de que nuestros estudiantes estuvieran bien preparados para el evento.

Además, todos los Dragones de DVMS continúan subiendo de rango en el Vocabulary Bowl compitiendo con las escuelas de todo el país. Durante el Vocabulary Bowl March Madness, los grandes esfuerzos de nuestros estudiantes los colocaron en el primer lugar en todas las escuelas de Arizona y en el séptimo lugar en su división a nivel nacional. ¡Gracias Sr. Bosman y Sra. Moran por todo su arduo trabajo, Go Dragons!

Las evaluaciones estatales comienzan esta semana con todos los estudiantes de octavo grado participando en la prueba AzSci, ¡pongamos manos a la obra y terminemos la semana en una nota alta!

No se olvide, las vacaciones de primavera se llevan a cabo del 29 de marzo al 2 de abril, y la escuela se reanuda el lunes 5 de abril para los dragones en el campus y en el hogar. No puedo esperar a ver lo que lograrán en abril.

¡Que se diviértan dragones!

Jon Larson, School Principal
