The Success Center is an after school tutoring program for students that need some additional support with their school work. This program is free of charge and is staffed with a certified teacher. All we ask of parents is that they provide a ride home for their children. This is a great opportunity for students to get some extra help with the skills that are needed to be successful in school.
The D.K.M.S. “Green Team” is a group of students working to help the environment and the animals in it for a greener future. One of the steps our team took was adopting an endangered animal. Thanks to the students donations, and Mrs. Tyner; our team was able to adopt the Aye Aye lemur.
