Congressman Barrow Visits Saxon and Susie Dasher

Celebrating Pre-K Week in style, Congressman John Barrow visited Saxon Heights and Susie Dasher Elementary students on Friday, October 10th. 

 

     "I think Pre-K is one of the best things we can do for our kids to give them a head start on things they can expect," said Barrow.  "I know, from my own experience, if you've been through it or been to the next level you're more confident and able to face it without fear, anxiety or distraction." 

 

     After explaining his role as a U.S. Representative, Barrow read to each class.  

 

     Saxon students chose The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything as their title, while he read If You Give A Mouse A Cookie at Susie Dasher.

Saxon Heights' Fall Festival

Milk Mustache Winners
Got Milk? mustaches were the greatest accessory as Dublin City celebrated World School Milk Day on September 24th. 
 
Hitting their most moo-rific pose, every Pre-K thru 5th Grade student milked up for the camera, hoping their picture would be made into a giant poster that hangs in the school lunch room. 
 
First Grader Brendon Bolden won at Hillcrest Elementary, while Pre-K student Quashawn Jones took top honors for Susie Dasher.  Kelisia Floyd had the milkiest mustache for Saxon Heights. 

 

Eight DMS Students Earn Industry Certifications

Offering 8th Graders the chance to boost their resumes while still in school, Dublin Middle School partnered with The Whetstone Group in August 2014.  In less than nine weeks, eight DMS students have completed testing and earned Microsoft Industry Certifications recognized in workplaces worldwide. 

 

     “I was excited to pass the test because I knew it could get me jobs in the future,” said 8th Grader Ezekiel McMillan. 

 

     The curriculum is self-paced, so students decide for themselves how many certifications they will receive.  

 

     It’s important to note that only one Microsoft Industry Certification Test is available.  There is no separate test for “Middle School,” “High School” or “Adult.”
