Principal's Message

Welcome Diamondbacks!

Welcome to our website!  I’m excited about being here at Dutcher Middle School and working with our amazing school community.  I’ve been a middle school principal for 9 years and started my career in education as a 7th and 8th-grade English Language Arts and history teacher.  I truly believe that this is an important age for our students, and we are committed to helping prepare them for high school and beyond.

I would also like to encourage our parents to take an active role in their student’s education while at DMS.  We’ll have plenty of opportunities for parents to help and participate in school events throughout the year.  On Wednesday, August 30th we’ll be hosting our annual Back to School Night.  It’s an excellent opportunity to meet our teachers and learn about our expectations and planned activities for the year.  Information regarding our Back to School Night will be shared via parent square, social media, and our school website.

I look forward to seeing all of you and having a fun and challenging school year.  Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions or concerns.
