A message from your Principal

Welcome DREAM Middle School Families,

We are so excited to welcome our new sixth grade families to our DREAM community and so thankful to have our returning seventh and eighth-grade families. This year is certainly a different year but our commitment to support and love continues to be the foundation of our school community. We hope this website helps you find useful information to all things middle school. As questions come up please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Sending so much love to you and your families,

-Mrs. Dodge

We're back!

  • Please reference this document to view our in-person hybrid schedules. You can also always check the Reopening Plan page for all of DREAM's reopening materials.

  • Enrichment will be starting on Wednesday, October 21 @ 11am. Check out the cool activities from which scholars got to choose!

  • Students who are allowed to walk home by themselves need to have a signed permission slip. Families can fill out, save, and email back the permission slip to matirado@wearedream.org. / Los estudiantes a los que se les permite caminar solos a casa deben tener un formulario de permiso firmado. Las familias pueden completar, guardar y enviar por correo electrónico el formulario de permiso a matirado@wearedream.org.

  • The Middle School Virtual Choir has officially started rehearsing! For 6th-8th grade students interested in auditioning, please contact Ms Briccetti

  • OFFICE HOURS START THE WEEK OF 9/21! Office hours are an opportunity for students to ask their teacher academic questions or get extra help. Office hours are on Mondays and Tuesdays and students can volunteer to sign up by letting their teacher know. Teachers will also let students know if they need to attend office hours. Lastly, families can also recommend that their students sign up for office hours. Please reach out to your child's teacher or Advisor if that is the case.

  • We need your help! We have noticed that fewer scholars log into their ZOOM classes after lunch, log in late or leave early but we do not want them to miss out on their learning. Please help ensure scholars are logging into their ZOOM classes after lunch on time and stay for the entire duration of their classes.
