Parent Ambassadors
Updated on 09/06/2018
We are excited for what the 2018-2019 school year has in store for our students, teachers, staff and parents at Dodge Middle School! Our first meeting is set for September 18th at 6:00 p.m. in the Media Center at DMS. The Parent Ambassadors consists of parents and staff working together to provide a greater understanding of how we can support young adolescents to the fullest. Parent ambassadors work to support positive communication between school and our Dodge Community by providing a forum for information on middle level education. Our approach is vastly different than the elementary in that we work to help build a stronger understanding of the middle school years and not on fundraising and volunteering. Rest assured the time commitment is significantly less! We are looking forward to another fabulous school year at Dodge Middle School! Please feel free to contact Chris Bussmann, Principal with any questions you may have!
