​Book a Parent Teacher Interview Process @ DMS - November 17th, 2017

DMS uses an on-line parent-teacher booking system for the upcoming interview sessions on Thursday evening, November 23rd and Friday morning, November 24th.  Please follow the instructions below to arrange for interviews. 

Please Note: If not already done, parents must register to use the system. Registration by parents can be done immediately, however parent-teacher interview appointments can only be booked after 6:00 pm on, Friday November 17th.  You will need your child’s report card to refer to for a list of their teachers. 

1. Click the “Book a Parent-Teacher Interview” link below:

Book a Parent-Teacher Interview Here!​

2. Click on the "Register" menu tab and create an account. Then login and add your children to the system.

3. After your students have been entered you will be ready to schedule an appointment  by clicking the button beside each student's name and then selecting the teachers you would like to schedule appointments with. 

4. After selecting the teachers from the list, click the "View Calendars" button to see their calendars. Select an available time slot for each teacher, click it and then click the "Book Appointments" button to save your selections. 

Repeat this for each student.

5. Sections of the teacher's calendars that are black are not available for booking as the teacher has another commitment at that time. Sections of the calendars that are coloured burgundy are time slots that you as a parent are already booked for other appointments. You will only see burgundy sections when booking appointments for a second or third child.

6. When you are finished you can view your appointments from the "Profile" tab by selecting "View Appointments". You can also print your appointments from the view appointments screen.

If you have any questions about the process, please contact the school - 453-5405 ​

Thanks to the Nashwaaksis Y's Men!

Thank you to all who attended Saturday's Y's Men's Service Club breakfast, at Willie O'Ree Place. Through the community's generous spirit, the Devon Middle School Home and School Committee is receiving $1400! That's roughly the equivalent of what it costs to fund the school's breakfast program for one year... and that's a BIG deal.

Thank you to the Y's Men's Club and their many breakfast sponsors for allowing us to participate, and thank you to the parents, staff and students who graciously gave of their morning for this important event.
