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.
Would you like to write and sell books?
Shannon Messenger, an international author of several books published through Simon and Schuster will be speaking at DMS in the MPR on Monday, January 12th, from 2:45 to 4:00pm. Shannon attended Margarita Middle School, Temecula Valley High School and lives in Temecula. She also graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Her books are fun and playful books for children, or young teenagers, or adults.
Shannon will share her behind the scenes journey on how to write and sell a book. She is very informative and personal. I encourage all students and parents to attend.
Here is a list of books that Shannon has written. Bring your book and Shannon will sign it.
