Impact Aid funds are for school districts that serve large numbers of military dependents or other federally connected children. To receive these funds, we need to have a completed Parent-Pupil Survey form on each student so that federal students may be identified.

 BESS Screener

Our Behavioral and Emotional Screening System (BESS) Universal Screening will begin September 14. It is a screening done by computer. Information on the BESS screener is attached in an English and Spanish version. If you would not like your child to participate in the BESS, please print, sign, scan, and email this form to the school counselor at: If you do not have a scanner you may take a picture and email it to this address as well. This is only if you do not wish for your child to participate.

      The 2019-2020 DCMS Yearbook can be found HERE. Feel free to keep it digitally or save it to a flash drive and have it printed at any print shop. Please remember, this is not the yearbook we intended. The creative and organizational process was disrupted when quarantine began. If something seems out of place or unfinished that is because it is. 🙂 That is why we are giving the yearbook away for free this year. Enjoy the memories and be safe!
