Welcome to a New Year!

Dear Charles R. Drew Middle School Community,

I am excited to begin another school year and welcome our students back to school!  

Orientation will be virtual this year.  An informational video presentation will be posted to our website and Facebook page on Wednesday, August 5th at 3:00 PM .  In this video you will learn more about Drew Middle School and our expectations for a successful year.  There will also be information on how to pay fees online through PayPams.  Please note that on PayPams there is an option to pay locker fees.  However, we will not be selling lockers to start the year.  We may revisit selling lockers at a later date.  Students are allowed this year to carry a clear or mesh book bag with them throughout the day.  Trapper Keepers or binders that have zippers are also strongly recommended.  We are expecting to pass out Chromebooks August 3rd - 7th.  We will distribute them curbside in the front of the school.  Please look for more details on our website.  

You can find information on the dress code policy, your child’s grade level supply list, and a suggested supply list by visiting our website at dms.tcboe.org or Facebook page.  We also have copies available for curbside pickup.  Please be reminded that the office summer hours are from 8-4 Monday – Friday. 

Please be reminded that all students must register online through PowerSchool using the snapcode that was provided to you with your child’s report card.  This includes students who are enrolling in the Beacon Virtual Academy as well.  The online registration link can be found on our website.  If you need help with registration or computer access please call the school at 256-315-5280 to set up an appointment for curbside assistance.   Online registration must be completed in order for your child to receive his or her schedule on the first day.  

I look forward to working with you and your child this year!  My phone number is 256-315-5281 and my email address is timyoung@tcboe.org.  I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you and Go Bears!
