REMINDER: Students are NOT allowed to have any medication with them including cough drops. Parents/Guardians may come in to the office and fill up a 'Medical Release Form' which gives us permission to administer medication to a child. Medication is kept in the office. Prescription medication must be brought to school by the parent/legal guardian. Over-the-counter medication must be unopened. Any medication left after the last day of school year has ended will be disposed of properly.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself, Tamy Durham, as the newly appointed principal of Desert View Middle School. It is truly an honor to serve a school community with engaged, positive and supportive students, staff and families. I fully believe that a great education is the result of schools and families working together for the common purpose of seeing our children succeed.
I am a born Yuman and a proud Yuma High Criminal! I earned a Bachelors in Education through NAU and a Masters in Education Administration from Grand Canyon University. I have taught in the Yuma Community for over twenty years and have nine years experience as a school administrator and educational leader. My two boys, now 24 and 21, have attended Yuma schools and have become thriving, successful young men that I am quite proud of. Through the past two years as the Assistant Principal at Desert View Academy, I have witnessed first hand the impact character education has on a child. Mrs. Hackmann will be returning to DVMS as Assistant Principal! Together, we plan to build on the amazing things already happening at DVMS, while also prioritizing integrity, grit and character education through the crucial pre adolescent years.
We will continue to educate our students with knowledge, empower our students with character and equip them for life. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.” Please feel free to contact me if there is any way I can support you, or to just say hello! I look forward to working together with you and the amazing staff at DVMS!
