It is getting that time of year for 8th grade students to be making plans to transition to high school!  This school year has flown by and continues to fly!  Please note the following dates in preparation for this transition:

Friday, February 19              8th grade tour of DHS
Monday, February 22          8th grade tour of Marshall Technical School
Thursday, February 25        8th grade Parent Meeting in DHS Cafeteria 
                                                              to discuss 4-year-plans and other information
                                                              about transitioning to high school

Mrs. Lauderdale will work with students individually to map out high school courses.  Mrs. Lauderdale and Ms. Jimmerson will then work with students to enter their plans into their online portfolios.  Parents will be asked to review the plan, sign and return it to school.  Please call or email Mrs. Lauderdale with any questions you may have at 256-593-1240 or

We are also looking forward to presentations on internet safety and cyberbullying in social studies classes on the following dates:

-7th Grade:  February 24-25    
-8th Grade:  March 16-17

We will be planning a 5th grade move-up day for later in the spring.  Watch for dates to be posted!
