Parent-Teacher Conferences
As we come close the end of first quarter...
Although Dominion does not have "formal" parent/teacher conference days, we do encourage parent-teacher communication throughout the school year. If needed, please contact your child's teacher to set up a time to meet. Or if you just need a quick update or explanation, send a quick email to the teacher.

We also are happy to accommodate group conferences if desired. These can be scheduled by contacting Mr. Peeples (
Coffee & Tea Please...
Coffee & Tea at Break

The DCS Coffee Shop is underway. Because of the high demand and cost in specialty coffees and teas, we will need to increase the cost to $1.50.
