Parent Input - Proposed Change to DMS Bell Schedule for 2022-23
Currently Dundalk Middle School has a 7 period day where classes are approximately 50 minutes long. The Leadership Team is asking for your input regarding a change to a 4 Period Bell Schedule where classes would be 90 minutes. This would provide less transitions and more opportunity for a deeper dive in the content with small group activities and personalized instruction. A transition to a 4 period day would also prepare students for High School. Please provide your input using this form. Thank you!

Join our friend group
Students who are facing challenges related to substance use, either directly or indirectly through a family or community member, are invited to join the Club House for Teens. This program sponsored by Villa Maria and open Monday - Friday from 3-7pm. This will be a safe and fun place for students to socialize and get support among other peers who are facing the same challenges. See the flyer or contact Ms. Horvitz in the DMS Counseling Office for more information.
