A really big congratulations is in place for all DMS 8th graders for a very successful school year. These students had the opportunity to earn high school credit for Introduction to Business Computer Applications (IBCA) and Journey to Careers. Some students were also able to take Algebra I as an additional high school course. 

Of the 30, the 8th graders earned 49  total Microsoft Office Specialist certifications in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. 6 students also earned Algebra I credit as well. 

What does this mean for DMS 8th graders? Students are able to leave middle school already having achieved credits for required high school courses. 1 student earned 4 total credits at Devall, 7 students earned 3 total credits, and 19 students earned 2 total credits during their 8th grade year at Devall. We are all so proud of their accomplishments and look forward to hearing about their success in high school.
