The Bearkit Challenge encourages all students at DMS to participate in at least one extracurricular activity throughout the school year. Our goal is to reach 100% participation by our student body. This challenge was enacted in the year (2014-15) and designed to increase participant numbers in all activities. Research shows that students who are involved both in and outside the classroom reach higher levels of achievement and self-confidence. Parents, please encourage your child to accept the Bearkit Challenge and get involved!
