Welcome to Dalewood Middle School!
Evidence from research shows that the middle school students are passing through a unique time in their lives-the change from childhood into adolescence. This process is a difficult one as the students must learn to cope with and adapt to rapid physical, social, emotional and intellectual change. The agenda (paper or online) is an important tool that each student is required to have and use on a daily basis. It helps to teach organizational skills. It is to be used to record assignments, homework, tests, and school activities. It provides an excellent vehicle for communicating among teachers, parents and students on a regular and timely basis. Your child’s advisor teacher is your primary school contact. We hope that by working together, we can provide a sound educational experience for these students as they develop and mature into young adults. Please feel free to contact the school at any time during the school day should you have a question or concern. We look forward to your positive contribution and participation during the year. Please view our Dalewood Brochure to find out all about our classes, subjects, events, activities, teams, school store etc. (PDF) Thanks, Dalewood Staff
