DMS Drama Performs at Board Meeting

Dublin Middle Schoolers have quite the Drama Bug.  Along with DMS Drama Teacher Mrs. Perry, five students attended the November 10th DCS Board Meeting.  

 

     Mrs. Perry complimented her students, saying drama "seems to come really natural to them."  However, she assured board members the class is more than just about memorizing lines. 

 

     "It's about practicing real-life applications," said Perry.  "Drama allows students to express who they really are and builds overall self-confidence."

The Green and Gold

Written for and by Dublin Middle School students, The Green and Gold shares stories that are important to us. No where else will you find a "Fashion at DMS" article in the same publication as a piece reviewing Zaxby's Chicken Wings with a poem about Hunting.

Mayor Best Visits SDE

Susie Dasher 3rd Graders are learning about local governments, so student Katelyn Carswell asked her teacher if Dublin's Mayor Phil Best could stop by. 

 

     "I think it's really important for us to know what the mayor does," said Carswell.  "That way, one day when I'm the mayor I'll know just what to do."  

 

     Best explained how his office is in City Hall, but his job often requires him to travel and represent Dublin.  Additionally, he said he oversees the City's main departments and meets with council members.   

 

     In addition to mentioning his daily tasks, Mayor Best said getting to meet new people, especially young Dublinites, is his favorite part of the job.

DHS Junior Earns Atlanta Falcons Scholarship

     Allison was nominated by DHS Athletic Director Coach Holmes for his leadership abilities both on the field, in the classroom and throughout the community. 

 

     "It makes me feel good because I wouldn't have received the scholarship if I wasn't performing both on the field and in the classroom," said Allison.  "You have to be a leader in both."
