Counseling Department:

Attached is the May Counseling Department newsletter.



My name is Eleanor Gorman. I'm a seventh grader at Dover Middle School and am both a Girl Scout and member of Dover Youth to Youth. I'm currently working on a collection of Girl Scout badges known as "Breathe". I learned about air and how to protect it. The last step of the project was to do a project to help the environment or people in a way related to air. As a member of Dover Youth to Youth, I am very passionate about educating people about the risks of tobacco use and have been working with them on my Girl Scout "Breathe" project to educate parents about the risk of secondhand smoke to their children. If you are interested in further information regarding youth and tobacco products, click here.


DMS PTA News: 

**DMS PTA is looking ahead to next year - we will have some open board positions! We have worked hard over the past couple of years to re-establish and re-organize the PTA and we hope that some new - or familiar! - faces will step up to continue our work in supporting the students and staff at DMS. Board positions include President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Member-at-Large. Please consider joining our team! Feel free to reach out with any questions or to express interest: [email protected].
