The Mutual Commitment

A strong partnership between parents and teachers
is essential for students to become the best they can be.

DMS is committed to providing your child a rich and comprehensive curriculum that goes well beyond academics. We have not cut the “frills” of the arts, movement and music because we understand how they stimulate the natural creativity and curiosity of each student.

In order for the school to maintain this broad curriculum, there are three areas of support to which parents must commit:

Take an active part in your child’s education journey:

Assure your child arrives on time and ready to learn,
Attend Class meetings and parent orientations,
Stay in contact with his or her teachers and support the class parent,
Provide a balanced home life in harmony with your child(ren)’s stage of development,
Continue learning yourself!

Contribute to the creation of community:

Participate in community events and festivals.
Volunteer – each family must do 40 hours per year,

Community can thrive only if everyone shares the responsibility for supporting what benefits us all!

Provide financial support to the best of your ability:

Stay current in all fees and charges
Participate in the AZ Educational Tax Credit program
Support DMS fund raising efforts such as the 21st Century Fund.

If you have additional questions about our school or the admissions process, please email the Enrollment Director.

Thank you for your interest in Desert Marigold School.
