Amy Bollman wins LEEA Award
(LEADER IN EDUCATION OF EXCELLENCE AWARD)
Each year, Resource Training and Solutions recognizes an outstanding educational from each building. These educators demonstrate exemplary leadership, dedication and professionalism in his/her building and district. These teachers are selected by their peers.
This year the Dassel-Cokato Middle School staff chose Amy Bollman, special education teacher, to receive this award. Mrs. Bollman shines throughout the building with a positive attitude and a "can do" willingness to be of assistance in all areas. Mrs. Bollman will be honored at the LEEA banquet on Wednesday, October 29th, in St. Cloud. Congratulations to her!
Free Mobile App Available for Parent/Student Portal
A free mobile app is available for Dassel-Cokato Campus portals. The apps will allow students and parents to check key features of Dassel-Cokato’s Campus portal from their mobile devices.
The app is available from iTunes Apps Store, Google Play and Amazon Android App Store. Instructions for downloading the app can be found by logging into your Campus portal account and clicking one of the three app store icons on the bottom of your main page.
A six digit code for our district is also available on these directions; you will need this code when downloading the app onto your mobile device. Once downloaded onto your device, you will log into the app using the same username and password you use when logging onto the portal on the web (passwords are case sensitive).
The mobile app provides you access to the following portal information:
- Daily planner (assignments, class and grade information)
- Assignments (combined for all classes by date)
- Attendance (by period and date)
- Grades (progress, term and assignment grades)
The mobile app is designed for your convenience and “data on the go.” The web portal is still the place to go for complete details and reports such as transcripts and lunch account information.
For more details, please see the videos provided by Infinite Campus.
Note: If you have not yet activated your Campus parent portal account, please contact the building secretary at your child’s school for assistance. A single activation will allow you to see account information for all of your children in the district.
DCMS MMR Rating
This week the Minnesota Department of Education released MCA data related to Minnesota schools Multiple Measurement Rating (MMR). DCMS faired very well with this rating receiving some great scores in student proficiency (99%) and our overall MMR rating of 82.89%. This is our highest MMR rating to date since the scoring started back in 2010.
We are very proud of our students and their efforts to show their learning when they take the MCA assessments. If you would like more information related to DCMS MMR scores, please contact Mr. Franklin or Mrs. Johnson.
DCMS Controlled Access
Just a reminder that all doors to DCMS will be locked during school hours. When visiting DCMS during all visitors will be required to buzz the middle school office staff who will greet you via intercom, verify visitor identity and the reason for the visit to our school. Once visitors have been provided access to DCMS they will be required to stop into the office, sign in, and acquire the proper identification badge to be worn while in the school. Most visitors will also be escorted to their desired location and back to the office during their visits. These extra steps in welcoming visitors to the district schools and DCMS is another way we can help keep our students and staff safe. If you have any questions related to the DCMS controlled access please contact me. In addition, please remember, students will not have access to DCMS until 7:15 each school day. The only door open before will be by the MS Commons where students would need to wait for access to the middle school.
FRIDAY IS CHARGER DAY
As a continuation of our school pride theme, all students and staff are encouraged to wear the Dassel-Cokato Charger colors on Fridays throughout the year.
The colors are blue and white.
DC CHARGER SONG LYRICS
Here come the DC Chargers,
fighting to keep our honor;

we’ll win this game! (Rah, Rah, Rah!)
Here’s to the blue and white;
with all our might we’ll fight.
Onward to victory,
we’ll win this game tonight! (Fight!)
