Feed the Faculty – Feb 9

Once again, we have the opportunity to support our teachers by providing them with some delicious food during their day of professional development. If you are unable to make a food donation, consider flowers in a vase or a small plant to decorate the tables.

Thank you Winter Faire Volunteers!

The Parent Council leadership team wishes to thank all of the hard working families that volunteered their time and talents for the Winter Faire. Your efforts were most fruitful, raising nearly $10,000 for our school! This event is not possible without the dedication of parents and staff who show up and work the event along with those that work tireless hours in advance crafting, baking, organizing and setting up to make the day a true community endeavor.

We are appreciative of your feedback, positive and constructive; please take a moment to complete the brief survey at this link: Winter Faire VOLUNTEER feedback

Lunch Survey Due Feb 5

Dear DMS Community:

As many of you know, DMS has been seeking hot lunch options for our students & staff.

We sought a local vendor that could provide healthy options. Due to our location, number of lunches previously sold (average of 35 a day) and our price point ($5-7), we have found 2 viable options.

We would like your input to be able to move forward with an agreement. There is a possibility that we could start serving this Spring.

Survey Due by Monday Feb 5.

Thank you!

MLK Holiday & Assembly

Reminder: NO SCHOOL MONDAY, JAN 15 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. 

School resumes on Tuesday, Jan 16. There will be an in-school assembly for grades 4-12 on Tuesday morning from 8:30-9am to celebrate Dr. King.

Parents are welcome to join (standing room only). Students will present excerpts from the famous speech “I have a dream” and poetry, prose and songs around the theme of diversity and inclusiveness.  In closing we will all sing together: “We shall overcome.”


Dress Code Reminder

Please take the time periodically to clarify with your child what portion of his/her wardrobe is school appropriate. Questions can be directed to your child’s teacher or the administrative office.

Desert Marigold School recognizes that all students have intrinsic worth based on who they are and not on what they wear. We want to create an environment in which each student can develop those innate qualities, focus on learning, and contribute in a positive way to the school community. We also believe that pressures related to clothing choice can distract students and undermine the school environment. 

Reminder: Graphic shirts, leggings, unnatural hair color, half shirts, light up shoes are NOT permitted.

Please refer to the links below to review the dress codes from our student handbooks:

Dress Code for Early Childhood & Grade School (PreK-8)

Dress Code for High School (Grades 9-12)
