"Every Cardinal Counts!"


Dear Driftwood Middle Families,

On behalf of the Driftwood Middle School PTSA, we would like to welcome you to the 2015 - 2016 school year. For our returning families, welcome back!!! For those families new to Driftwood Middle, we extend a warm welcome! You are becoming a part of a great school.  At this stage in our children's lives, they need our support, our guidance and our presence. They are experiencing so many changes, and we need to partner with the teachers and staff as a community to ensure their success.  We are so fortunate here at Driftwood to have such amazing teachers, administrators and support staff. Our children are not only enriched here, they are safe.

PTSA stands for Parent, Teacher & Student Association. The members of the PTSA Board are all parent volunteers. 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.

The Fall Festival is one of our major fundraisers. This year will be our 7th Annual Cardinal Fall Festival Fund-raiser. This event will be held on October 16, 2015 during school hours for Driftwood students only. We will transform the entire back field into a huge carnival with rides, foam pits, and much more. Students will receive a Fundraising Collection Envelope from their first period teacher on Wednesday, September 16, 2015.  Make sure they write their name, grade and first period teacher's name on the envelope where indicated so it can find it's way back to them if misplaced.  Read it carefully with your child so you understand how it works and how top fundraisers in each grade level can be eligible for valuable PRIZES.

The DMS Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is comprised of parents, teachers, students and staff that work together to support our students, teachers and staff and to encourage parental participation at our school. Parental involvement is essential as we coordinate activities and programs for the students and staff. DMS PTSA fundraises to support events and activities, organizes volunteers for various school and PTSA events, provides snacks and supplies for students while testing or preparing for End of Course Exams, hosts Teacher Appreciation events, and supports numerous programs and activities. We are only able to continue these programs and create new ways to support our wonderful school through your membership and support.

"Every Cardinal Counts!" is the slogan for the PTSA this year.
With the parents, teachers and students walking together with the PTSA Board and our Principal Mr. Williams - Our students will receive the best education possible and enjoy a healthy & safe school environment, where "Every Cardinal Counts!"
