The 8th grade history classes have recently been working on a project creating Native American art. Friday they were able to see actual Native American art on their field trip to the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis. Thank you to Mr. Maloy for organizing this fun experience!
Our cross country runners did great at the Selma Invitational! Abram Bogue placed 5th out of 100 runners and Dani Rose 13th out of 84 runners. Way to go Hawks!
Congratulations to the 7th grade volleyball team on being the champions of the first (hopefully annual) Driver Invitational Volleyball Tournament! #GoHawks 🏐
These awesome Cross Country teammates wore purple at their first home meet and ran for Easton & to raise awareness for cystic fibrosis! 💜
All of the 8th grade students, as well as community/staff volunteers, got to participate in an amazing experience called Challenge Day! This workshop allowed them time to get to know each other on a deeper level, build connections, and learn more about how they can ‘Be The Change’ here at our school. Thank you to Reid Health for making this event possible!
Happy Friday from the staff at DMS! We hope everyone has a great weekend; please reach out if you need anything! Teacher contact information can be found on our website: https://dms.rc.k12.in.us/o/driver-middle-school/staff

Semester 2 Honor Roll, 2022-2023. Great job everyone! #GoHawks
We are proud to announce the winners of the 2022-2023 Gary Harvey and Bev Jones sportsmanship awards: Auden Hummel and Garrett Horner! These 8th grade students played at least 3 sports this year and demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout; this award was voted on by all of the DMS coaches. Congratulations to Auden and Garrett on earning this well deserved honor!
Major congratulations are in order for Kayla Epley, Aubrey Lawrence, and Kaylynn Price; these three ladies qualified for the RC PRIDE Work Ethic Certification at Driver this year! To receive this honor, they had to maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher, had an attendance rate of 98% or higher (less than 4 tardies or sign in/outs), received 1 or less discipline referrals this year, and showed a dedication to serving others through logging a minimum of 4 community service hours. In addition, these students were presented to the DMS staff and had 3 teachers sign off verifying that they displayed Persistence, Respectfulness, Initiative, Dependability, and Efficiency (PRIDE) on a daily basis. The requirements for this honor mirror the requirements of the Governor's Work Ethic Certificate which can be obtained by seniors at their high school graduation. Wonderful job to you all, and thank you for demonstrating PRIDE through your 8th grade year!
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Law Enforcement Division, Outdoor Education Section and the Indiana National Archery in the Schools Program would like to congratulate two DMS Students as Academic Archers this year. Awesome job Emma Duncan and Kaylee Timmerman!
This year we created a new award that will hopefully become a tradition at DMS.. the Hawk Award! The purpose of this award is to celebrate our students, encourage RCSC PRIDE, and the following traits: good character, positive influence with peers and in the classroom, humility, academically motivated, and an overall good role model. Congratulations to Garrett Horner and Julie Cockerill for being the first recipients of this award and for setting the tone for all future Hawks on how to always put your best foot forward each and every day. Thank you for being great role models at DMS!
Last but certainly not least of our last day of school activities was the 8th grade field day & color wars! It was a beautiful afternoon to spend time outside working together and having fun! Best of luck in high school, class of 2027 - we will miss you! ❤️💙💛💚
