The Dolphin Athletic Booster Club will be holding its spring meeting on May 23rd at 6pm in the Durant Auditorium. The purpose of this meeting is to elect new officers for the Board for the 2013-2014 school year and to update everyone on the progress that the club has made this year. If you are interested in a Board position, or want to help in other ways, please attend this meeting. We want to thank all of the Dolphin families and staff members for the incredible support this year. We are completing our first full year in existence and because of your support we have been able to support Durant Middle in the following ways. We have purchased uniforms for our girls soccer team, girls basketball team, boys basketball team, girls track team, and football and cheerleading uniforms which will be used next season. We have also been able to have the activity bus cleaned. We were able to help our cheerleaders attend a competition, and we have made donations to some of the academic departments at Durant. We want to build on the success of this year for the years to come so we need your continued support. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
