Durham Week at a Glance for At Home Learning, 5/11

Greetings Dragon Nation, 

I hope this communication finds you all safe and healthy. We are quickly approaching the final weeks of school. I wanted to share some important information as we get close to summer. 

Yearbook information: A Year to Remember  
There are only about 30 yearbooks left. You need to get them while they last. Please go to:  

Don’t forget to buy your 2019-2020 yearbook today at! They are $25.  On May 20th, the price will increase to $27. 

We may not have made all the memories we planned to make this school but we can still enjoy and remember the memories we did make this school year. In order to maintain safety for all involved, we are only allowing online sales to purchase a yearbook, no other forms of payment will be accepted. Make sure you order one today to relive all the great things that happened in the Dragon Nation this year!

Yearbook Pick Up Schedule:

Monday, May 18th from noon to 1 pm – 8th grade ONLY

Tuesday, May 19th from 9 am to noon and 4pm to 7 pm


8th grade Drive by Celebration Monday, May 18th from 12:00 noon to 1pm-  8th grade only.  Come drive through the parking lot with signs and celebration. Our teachers and staff want to wish our 8th grade class well as they continue on their future endeavors. We hope to see all of our 8th graders and their parents in the Drive By Celebration. After the Drive By Celebration you may pick up your yearbook if you have purchased one.  

We unfortunately have some students that have not completed assignments. It is imperative for you to reach out to your child’s teacher and check Skyward for grade updates.  This nine weeks we only have about 10 grades total for a class. Teachers are working with students who have not completed work and will continue to do so but we cannot grade what we don’t have. If you are having technology issues it is important to reach out to us by phone or email in order for us to be able to help you.  

Counselors have started contacting students and parents about upcoming Summer School.  Summer School will be online and scholarships are available. Counselors will provide you with the application.
