SUMMER READING PROGRAM:
Students at Douglas Middle School have the opportunity to earn points and chances for an electronic reader by reading this summer! Students may read any Accelerated Reader book they have not already read. After completing the book, they can come into the Middle School and take their AR test. When they have successfully completed the test, they will receive a dessert coupon from McDonalds and their name will be put into a drawing for an electronic reader. The drawing will be held after school starts in August. Language teachers will also be rewarding the summer reading with extra credit in language class next fall. Help you child prevent learning loss over the summer months. Encourage him or her to keep reading and reap the benefits.
The Douglas Middle School Destination Imagination team made DMS proud! The team took first in the state competition and consisted of Denali Berquist, Janie Dziardzial, Maddy Tillard, Audrey Peasley, Allie Peasley, Rhylee Ramsey, and Kirsten Caskey and were called Preppy Purple Pandas Playing Pink Pianos = Pandemonium. They participated in the Improv Element called Pandemonium, and swept the scores by 30 points in the Main Challenge, but only won by two points when the Instant Challenge proved to be difficult. They are now headed to Globals in TN to represent the State of Wyoming doing what they do best!
