    6th Grade Orientation Day

    Last year was our district’s inaugural year for the 6th Grade Orientation Day. It was a huge success! In addition to the middle schools’ evening events, the Caesar Rodney School District will again offer a full day orientation for all incoming 6th grade students at Dover Air Base, Fifer, and Postlethwait Middle Schools. The day will include activities to acclimate students to the school, their new peers and teachers, and middle school expectations. Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 9am-2pm. Transportation will be available and lunch will be served. More information on registering for this orientation day will be distributed as we get closer to the end of the school year.

Our Vision:

The staff at Dover Air Force Base Middle School is dedicated to providing all students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they will need to succeed in high school and beyond. To that end, we will push students to read and write, to think and solve, to be creative, and to apply what they learn in various contexts and situations. During this journey, we also hope that students take time to socialize and have fun, but above all we hope that they learn, grow and develop both as students and as young adults.

Our Mission:

Dover Air Force Base Middle School is committed to promoting, enhancing, and sustaining student academic achievement in a safe learning environment, and to assist our community of learners in developing the skills to become responsible good citizens.
