Parent Information


    Students learn at home, in school, and in the community.  Research shows that parent involvement is the single most important indicator of school success. The staff of DMS is committed to excellence in education and encourages parents to become involved in their students' education.  There are opportunities for parent and community involvement at Dunnellon Middle School.  Every effort will be made to find every parent a way to participate actively in his/her child's education.  Volunteers are needed to tutor students, shelve library books, make games, file papers, and chaperone field trips.  If you are interested in helping out, contact our School Volunteer Coordinator, Ms. Bennett, in the Front Office.

    Mentors and Tutors

    Volunteers are needed at DMS to serve as mentors and tutors. Tutors and mentors assist students in preparation for state assessments, in developing reading skills, in exploring careers, and researching topics in the Media Center. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and making a difference in a child's life at Dunnellon Middle School, contact us.

    High School Credit in Middle School

    Your child may be eligible to take high school level course work next school year due to his/her hard work and dedication to academic excellence.  While taking courses for high school credit is a great way to challenge an outstanding middle school student, there are some things that you need to keep in mind as you make a decision on whether taking a high school level course is right for your child.
