Dove Creek High/Middle School Principal's Report
Posted on 09/21/2022


We are off and running at Dove Creek High/Middle School! It’s hard to believe we are already 5 weeks into the school year. Fall MAP testing is completed, FFA fundraisers are flourishing, our seniors have begun applying for scholarships, fall sports are in the middle of their seasons, and homecoming is next week!

We completed our fall MAP tests for our 6th - 10th-grade students and teachers will be taking a look at that data this Friday morning at a teacher in-service meeting. The staff would like to see 80% of our students meet their growth goals this year and we will use these fall tests to use as a baseline for that growth. Another lofty goal the staff has set is to see 80% of our students meeting benchmark on the MAP test by the end of the year. It will take a lot of hard work to attain these goals and the staff is ready for the challenge. 

Be on the lookout for FFA members selling DJ Meats. They will be wrapping up that fundraiser next Wednesday, September 28th. We also have quite a few seniors that have already started applying for scholarships. This may be the earliest time that our seniors have started applying in many years. 

High school fall sports are flourishing and are already in the middle of their seasons. Currently, both our volleyball and football teams are undefeated and ranked very high in the state. The volleyball team is currently ranked 3rd in the coaches poll and 1st in the RPI poll and the football team is ranked 2nd! Good luck to both teams as they continue to dominate. Our middle school teams are already finishing up their seasons with just a couple of weeks remaining.  

Homecoming is scheduled for next week and below is a list of events. Come out and support the bulldogs.
