Dear DMS Students & Families:

My name is Amanda Silva and I will be your principal for the 2019/2020 school year. This will be my second year as Principal of DMS and I feel honored and excited to get to know you and build relationships with all of you! 

My first year as principal at DMS was amazing and the connections fostered with students and families will last, long past middle school. It is my pleasure to be a member of a dynamic staff that focuses on relationships and always puts students’ needs first. 

Our school site focuses are: establishing a connection between home and school, providing academic support for our students and creating a fun and inclusive middle school experience. Middle School is such a unique time for our kids. They’re beginning to explore their individuality while still (silently) yearning for our support and guidance. 

Please know that your child will always be a priority for us at DMS. The benefit of enrolling at a small school is that every staff member will have the opportunity to build a positive relationship with your child. If you have a question, call. If you have a concern, call. It is our job to ensure you feel your student’s needs are being met and that your concerns are being addressed.   

I entrust my own children to Denair staff every day of the school year and I am grateful and humbled that you trust us with your children every day. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make a positive impact on your children. 



Amanda Silva
Denair Middle School Principal
