Weekly Note From the Principal

Hello Drexel Hill Families, 

Interim Reports - Marking Period 4

The mid-marking period progress reports are up to date on the Home Access Center. The Progress reports capture the updated student grades at the midway point of each marking period and are a good time to review and see where communication and attention are needed in any areas of concern. Interim Reports are currently up to date and active in the Home Access Center. 

DHMS Student Conduct Task Force

Last week we held the first two meetings of a task force, including school adults and families who would like to meet to plan ways to support the behaviors we see the most in need for support in children. 


This team will meet each Thursday in the month of May with a goal to identify quick wins and lasting improvements. We will meet at 7:45 AM to 8:30 AM. Additionally, we will meet from 3:30 - 4:30 PM. The agenda from the AM and PM sessions will be the same, so families can join either meeting.
