A bimonthly update on DMPS news and information
Des Moines Public Schools publishes its district-wide newsletter, the DMPS Community Report, six times each year. The publication includes features on school district programs, recognition of student and employee accomplishments, and practical information on a range of issues.
The Community Report is distributed via email to all Des Moines Public Schools’ families and employees. It is also made available online and distributed through Facebook and Twitter.
The current edition of the DMPS Community Report features a profile on Clemencia Spizzirri of Merrill Middle School, the 2015 Iowa Teacher of the Year. The latest newsletter also highlights grants the district has receive to support ELL students and expand our work with Des Moines University, introduces the principal of the soon-to-reopen Moore Elementary, highlights a number of recognitions earned by students and staff, includes a note from Superintendent Ahart about winter weather, and more.
