Dyersburg City Schools

Posted Thursday, July 7, 2011, at 2:16 PM

Students ready for the school year complying with dress code.
Exciting changes have been happening this summer in the Dyersburg City School System. Change always brings a little apprehension, but it also allows for excitement, growth, and success. The schools' staffs have worked hard in making the transitions occur smoothly. The staff is excited and well prepared for a fabulous school year.

The purpose of this blog is to allow the school system an opportunity to keep the community informed of what is happening with students and schools. We welcome the community to become involved in our mission: "The mission of Dyersburg City Schools is to provide a safe, positive environment where all children can reach their full potential."

The following items are a few of the upcoming events taking place at Dyersburg Schools:

The program, "Camp EXCEL: Exciting, Challenging, Enriching, Learning," is scheduled for July 11- 22 for selected students at the Intermediate and Middle schools. The Primary school's program will be July 18 -- 22. This program allows for the opportunity to participate in engaging activities throughout the day while strengthening skills in language arts and math.

Dyersburg Primary School provides a program called "Super Why Reading Camp." The program will be in session from 8:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Transportation to and from the camp will be the parents'/family's responsibility. A celebration will take place at the end of the camp for parents to visit the school and celebrate the students' accomplishments from camp week.

The Intermediate and the Middle school programs will be held from 8:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The focus of the programs will be activities involving math and language arts. Students will also be involved in enrichment activities every day and be provided snacks and lunch. Students who have perfect attendance through the week will be invited to attend special activities and field trips during the last Friday.
