The District 2016 -2017 Parent Notification of the John M. McKay Scholarship for Students with Disabilities Program, commonly known as the McKay Scholarship is being sent home with students.

Dunnellon Middle School, working together as partners with the total community, will prepare students for the future. A professional, compassionate staff will provide a challenging, diversified curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student. Our goal is to provide a safe environment where students are expected to develop the integrity, social and life skills necessary to become productive citizens.
Dunnellon Middle School has a need for volunteers. If you have the time to volunteer, and work with our middle school students please see Mrs.Whitmore at the Front Desk in Building 1 for a volunteer application. When you volunteer you are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity. You can make a difference in children’s lives by being a volunteer!

SAVE is ready to begin their year! The local chapter of SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) is eager to get started and gain more members in this 2015-16 school year. We want to grow as an organization and have a larger impact on the school and community. SAVE promotes nonviolence within the school and community, we provide education about the effects and consequences of violence as well as spread awareness of drug and alcohol abuse which can also lead to violence, all while providing safe activities for students, parents and the community. Our first meeting was held Tuesday, August 25th and will be every other Tuesday for the rest of the year. So join and encourage us as we engage in big and fun things in our goal of being drug and violence free!
