Remind allows teachers to safely and efficiently interact with students and parents about important classroom information and school activities. We have set up a Remind 101 link for DMS ASB activities. Click the link to the right to get started.
Worried about safety? Read on -
No exchange of personal information: Remind messages are not sent from personal cell phone numbers. Students/parents who sign up to get messages through Remind will never gain access to a teacher's personal cell phone number, nor will the teacher ever have access to a student or parent’s personal information. (Students and parents opt themselves into messages, the teacher does not add them.)
One-way, broadcast messaging: All Remind messages sent must go to at least three subscribers. No teacher has the ability to communicate directly with one student. This precaution is in place to disallow any form of bullying, favoritism, or inappropriate conversation. For the same reasons, subscribers are not able to send open replies to any messages sent.
Logged communication history: A log of all messages sent are saved in the teacher's account and on our server. These messages can never be edited or deleted. This means an accurate log of communication history will always be at your fingertips should anyone question the content that you have or have not sent.
Server security: Every click, page view, and text message is handled by the Remind application, which is hosted on a cloud platform called Heroku. Their business focuses on server management, scaling and implementing security best practices. If you would like to learn more, Heroku has dedicated an entire page to explain their security provisions, all of which we automatically inherit.

PTSA Membership Drive
Dolphins...it's time! Our annual PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) membership drive is here and get ready for this....the competition is on... Bella Vista Middle School (BVMS) has agreed to a battle between our schools! The principal and assistant principal of the school who has the fewest PTSA members will have to wear the winning school’s spirit shirt for the day. We want to see BVMS administration wearing our PRIDE shirt not Mrs. Miller and Mr. Cole wearing their shirt. We CAN do this! We were #1 out of all secondary schools in our membership participation two years ago and even won an award that is proudly on display in the front office! See the attached letter for details of the many perks you get with your membership. We have already begun our weekly drawings. The competition ends on 1/31. Please consider supporting DMS by joining your PTSA.
