Parent Teacher Conferences

Conferences are scheduled on February 11th & 12th.  Students will be released at 12:00pm on these days. The Conference schedule is as follows:

Thursday, 2/11          12:30 – 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Friday, 2/12                12:30 – 4:00 p.m.

More information will be coming from sixth grade teachers in regards to Parent/Teacher Conferences.

7th and 8th grade Core teachers, as well as Art, Band, Music/Choir, P.E., Leadership, ELP, and Special Education teachers will be available on a walk-in basis.

We look forward to meeting with you during conference times. Parent-Teacher conferences are extremely important as they provide the opportunity for you, your child, and your child’s teachers to meet and review your student’s progress.

Our goal is to meet with one hundred percent of parents. If you are unable to attend conferences during these times, please contact your child’s teacher via e-mail or phone to arrange for another opportunity to talk.

Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are an important component of Desert Sky Middle School.  Students benefit in many ways.  Students who participate in extracurricular school activities are better connected to school, form more positive peer relationships, demonstrate greater self-esteem, and usually do better academically.

Please see the attached document for a list of clubs and activities.
