Principal’s Message 

Welcome back!  I hope all of you had a safe, healthy and happy holiday break and are ready for a fantastic 2nd semester. 

January will continue some of the great programs here at DIS. STEM will be hosting our Sports Science evening for all DIS families.  5th grade Band will be hosting a concert in our gym.  Chorus, Renfro Runners and other groups will also continue their exciting work. 

Soon you’ll be getting some information on the Lady T-Bird basketball program. The season is open to any DIS girl who is interested.  I’m looking forward to seeing them in action.  The Girls on the Run program will also get going soon, providing a fantastic learning opportunity for our students.  Information will also be coming home on that activity.  Both activities are organized by our DIS staff, which is another example of our teachers doing great things for the students outside the classroom. 

It’s great to be a T-Bird! 

Yours in Education, 

Kevin Stirnaman 
Principal – Dorris Intermediate School
