State Testing 2018

Dear Parents,

Dates for state testing coming up in April for both our 5th and 6th grade students have been set. Students in Grade 5 will take tests in English Language Arts, Math, and Science. Our greatest need is help monitoring 5th grade classrooms. Fifth grade testing is all paper/pencil. Sign-Up Genius will only show slots available for 5th grade testing sessions as we will not need volunteers to monitor for 6th grade. If you are a 6th grade parent, please consider helping us out with 5th grade.

There will be 5 days of testing for 5th grade. Students will test on April 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 9thOn every testing day, we will need at least 20 volunteers to help monitor.

The state department does not allow family members to monitor in the same classroom as their student. Please make sure you do not sign-up to monitor in your DCIS student's homeroom class.

Once you sign up, you will be sent a detailed letter about your proctoring responsibilities. The letter will be sent home after spring break as we get closer to testing. Thank you in advance to all of our parents/community friends available and willing to volunteer their time.:)

If you have any questions please contact Heather Flinton at or call 715-9850, ext. 3811. Thank you!

Drop Off Line

 We ask that in the drop off line you pull all the way up to the furthest teacher on duty. This allows for approximately 10 cars at a time to let their students out at once.  Students may enter the school through the front doors or the gym doors in the morning.  Please have backpacks ready and give hugs and kisses early so that when it is time for your student to unload they are ready to do so.  When you exit the DCIS parking lot during drop off and pick up you are required to turn RIGHT.  This will help the flow of traffic to run as smoothly as possible.


Remind 101

Remind is a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps teachers share important updates and reminders with students and parents.  Subscribe by text or using the Remind app.  All personal information is kept private.  Teachers will never see your phone number, nor will you see theirs. This is for messages OUT only.  Not for messaging back and forth.

Chess Club Volunteers

We have all of the supplies to start up a Chess Club during the lunch hours, however, we need parent volunteers to be in charge of it.  If you would be interested in helping DCIS start up a Chess Club please call the office.


Student Safety - end of day
At the end of the day please wait in the lobby for your students or check in through the office before entering the rest of the building.


Long Distance Phone Numbers

Please give us a local phone number as a contact number for your child.  The cost of long distance calls weighs heavily on our budget.  This would help us immensely.


Calendars on Teacher Websites

If one of your child's teachers uses the 'calendar' on their website, you can click on the button at the top of the calendar  that says "Subscribe".  This button will allow you to receive an alert email every time the teacher adds, deletes, or changes something on their calendar.


Attendance is very important to the academic success of your children.  Please help us with this by having your students here and on time.  If your student is absent please call the attendance line @ 715-9851 and leave us a detailed message.
