Good Evening Sharks, this is Principal Smith with your weekly update. I would like to begin with a compliment to all of the students at DPMHS who have been attending school and classes on time and have demonstrated excellent attendance! Your commitment to your education shows and I see it every day!

Parents, the First Reporting Period Progress Reports will be carried home tomorrow, Monday, with your student. They should be signed and returned to the Period 1 teacher for proof of signature. Don’t forget to also be monitoring your student’s grades on Jupiter, our web-based grading system.

This Tuesday, September 13th, is a regular day and school lets out at 3:02 pm.

School tours for next year continue on Wednesdays and Fridays! Please share about our great school and encourage other families to come check us out! We are on Facebook, Daniel Pearl Magnet High School, and on Twitter, @DPMHSPrincipal! Follow us to see and learn about our school!
