    Mission Statement

    The mission of the Dunnellon Middle's Media program is to ensure that the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.

  • Sunshine State Young Readers'

    The Sunshine State Young Readers' Award program presents a choice of fifteen books chosen each year by a committee of Florida librarians. They are chosen for their quality and appeal, and represent some of the best in children's literature today. Students in grades 6 through 8 are encouraged to read at least three of the books, so they can vote for their favorite. Every year, the author of the book with the most statewide votes is presented with the Sunshine State Young Readers' Award.

     

    Book Fair

    DMS sponsors two Scholastic Books Fairs a year. One in October and one in February. We will announce well in advance when students, parents, and staff can take advantage of the great books offered.
