- Orientation Day is Almost Here!
Mark your calendars for Meet and Greet/Orientation, where you’ll be able to pick up supply kits, meet your student’s homeroom teacher, sign up for PTSA committees, tour the school and more! A limited number of school supply kits will also be available for purchase (first come first serve!)
We look forward to seeing all our fabulous Wildcats on
Tuesday, July 31 at the following times:
*Rising 6th graders: 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
*Rising 7th and 8th graders: 2 – 3 p.m.
Lessen your time in line at Orientation by submitting your PTSA membership online ahead of time, or simply print the form, fill it out and bring it in with payment. PTSA members reap a ton of great benefits, and your support helps Durham continue to grow and thrive!
- PTSA Needs Your Help!
Please consider volunteering an hour or two of your time at Orientation Day on July 31. Check out this Sign-up Genius for more info.
We hope you’ll also consider getting involved throughout the school year. We have a ton of committee and volunteer options to suit any schedule. Send an email anytime to inquire about opportunities, or stop by our table at Orientation! Parents of rising 6th graders — this is a great way to jump right in and get involved. We promise to show you the ropes!
- Calling All Business Owners!
Durham is looking for business partners for the upcoming school year. This is a great way to increase your company’s visibility in the community and help Durham at the same time! If you’re a business owner and want more information simply contact us at email@example.com
- School Dress Code Gets a Major Makeover
Although we hope Durham students will still dress to impress, a couple of major dress code changes are in effect for the coming school year. Athletic shorts are now acceptable attire, and so are leggings/jeggings/yoga pants, as long as they are worn with shirts, dresses, shorts or skirts that are longer than mid-thigh. Still not sure about your student’s wardrobe? Check out the full dress code on the Durham web site.

- Mea Culpa
We’re constantly striving to improve the flow of communication at Durham. We recently discovered that the Contact Us tab wasn’t functioning properly & we have dealt with that issue. If you have tried to contact us through that tab & didn’t receive an answer, we’re sorry. This should not be a problem in future.
