    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    I am writing to let you know that Dawnwood Middle School, along with all other schools in the Middle Country Central School District, will be participating in a school climate survey. Through this survey we hope to gain insight from all members of our school community and incorporate these into our ongoing planning. The survey will be open from Tuesday, April 2nd through Friday, April 19th and will take about 15 minutes to complete.


    If you have registered an email address with the district you will receive an invitation by email from Jonathan Singer <East@k12insight.com> with a link to complete this survey. You may also access this survey by using any computer, tablet or smartphone by visiting the district website: www.mccsd.net, and clicking the link “School Climate Survey – Parents/Guardians.”


    Sometime during the survey dates, students in grades 3-12 and teachers will also be invited to complete versions of this school climate survey. Student participation in the survey is voluntary, but we hope you will encourage your child to share their opinions with us as part of our ongoing efforts at improving all aspects of their school experience.


    All survey responses will be treated as strictly confidential.


    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.



    Dan Katchihtes

Caught Being Awesome

  • A big shout-out to Mrs. Kranenberg's 6th grade class. They raised 83 dollars and purchased pajamas to help EJ's PJs Pajama drive. What a way to come together to do some good! You should be proud.
