Principal’s Council at Dana Middle School

Principal Bosselman and Associate Principal Simon are seeking students interested in joining the Principal’s Council. The Principal’s Council is a group of students who meet regularly with the Principal and Associate Principal to discuss student life at Dana Middle School. This council is a voluntary group and is open to any student who is interested in taking part. The Principal’s Council is a space for students to engage in direct dialogue with the administration about school decisions and to have a voice in the decision-making process. 

At the February broadcast, we will announce the start of the Principal’s Council and will seek volunteers from the student body. The composition of the Principal’s Council should be representative of the entire student body. If you know students who are interested, please have them complete the form on this google form declaring their interest. Parents/Guardians and staff members may recommend a student for the council by completing the form as well.

School Dance and Expectations

The Valentine Dance is scheduled from 12:45 - 2:15 pm on Thursday, February 8. With any school function at Dana Middle School, students need to maintain adequate citizenship in order to qualify. As mentioned in the student handbook, all students may participate in school events unless they have 2 or more U’s (unsatisfactory). If a student receives 2 or more U’s in citizenship, they will not be eligible to participate in the school event for that grading period. Students do have the opportunity to improve their citizenship every 6-week grade period. 

This is a 90-minute FREE event, and there will be no re-entry allowed.
