Dear Driftwood Middle
behalf of the Driftwood Middle PTSA and myself, we would like to
welcome you to the 2009-2010 school year. This year we are not only
starting out the year with a new Principal, but with a new PTSA
Board as well! We are planning great things and changes for
Driftwood. For our returning families, welcome back!! For those
families new to Driftwood, we extend a warm welcome. You are
entering a great school.
We all experience the middle school jitters along with our children.
We have all heard how in middle school things are different and
volunteering at the school is not needed or encouraged. Well I
assure you that this is a great misconception. At this stage in
their lives they need our support, our guidance and our presence.
They are experiencing so many changes, and we need to partner with
their teachers as a community to ensure their success. We are so
fortunate here at Driftwood to have such amazing teachers and staff.
Our children are not only enriched here, they are safe.
Parent, Teacher & Student Association. Students do serve as voting
members on the board. Becoming a member of the PTSA is a great way
to get involved, even for parents and guardians who do not have the
opportunity to come to the school and volunteer.
is the slogan for the PTSA this year. With the parents, teachers and
students walking together with the PTSA Board and our new Principal
Mr. Williams – Together we can help our students receive the best
education possible and enjoy a healthy & safe school environment.

From a concerned parent:
thank everyone for caring about our school.
Holiday and weekend
homework is not allowed unless the time includes the holiday and
weekend. Children need a break just like adults and are allowed to
have vacation, family time, chores and fun too. No homework on
vacation. If you do it's not a vacation.
