From Kathy Christoph, MS Principal

Folks,

This evening, you will have access to your child’s interim comments for the spring semester. These comments summarize months of hard work and productivity, and I hope your child feels accomplished with his/her progress. You may access the comments  through the D-E website. Please see the instructions listed at the end on how to access the report.

This is the fifth of seven formal Middle School communiques to you designed to provide information about your child as a learner and a student. Read More

Why are corn, chocolate, and potatoes so important in our diet today? Read More

Spring Break is right around the corner so some D-E Middle School students may have more unscheduled time available than usual during those two weeks. Reading for pleasure is a good way to fill some time, and you don’t have to go to a bookstore or the library to grab a book.  Any D-E student can borrow an eBook for free from the D-E Imperatore Library.
