Druid Hills Middle School
When you give money to Druid Hills Middle School's Enrichment Fund, your tax-deductible donation will help our PTSA
make capital improvements around the building and property
help fund teacher grants and supplement their continuing education
do a variety of special "appreciation" things for our teachers and staff throughout the school year
Our goal is to raise $35,000 for 2022-2023.
Our goal is to replace the stage curtains and improve the sound system in both the gym and cafeteria.
We are so grateful that we were able to replace the old, deteriorating gym curtains, thanks to the generous donors of our DHMS Enrichment Fund. Next Up: We are currently working with our sound system vendor to nail down a date to install 3 new speakers in the gym.
In the last few years, Enrichment Fund donations:
Purchased air purifiers & mobile teaching stands for every classroom
Added several new outdoor picnic tables to the grounds
Replaced the school's two marquees in front of the gym and school entrance
Provided teacher and staff appreciation gifts, supply grants, Teacher of Excellence cash awards, and supplemented continuing education
Funded the purchase and installation of the new Druid Hills Middle School name lettering on the building
Helped spruce up the lobby with new seating and plants
Much, much more!
In 2019-2020, the Enrichment Fund had a goal to resurface our school's deteriorating original track. Many donors and community sponsors supported this endeavor. After learning that our Druid Hills cluster was the only DCSC school cluster without an all-weather track, volunteers wrote letters and appeared in front of the School Board to create a call to action for the track to be replaced altogether. Thanks to them and to our School Board Chair, Mr. Marshall Orson and Regional Superintendent, Mr. Trenton Arnold, who navigated the system and helped secure the funding and the operational support to make these much needed improvements happen. Our new track was completed in 2020 and has been enjoyed by DHMS and DHHS students ever since!
Since the county funded the majority of costs associated with the new track, the Enrichment Fund used some of the money raised in 2019-2020 for heavy-duty trashcans and signage around the field.
A NEW TRACK FOR DHMS!

We continue to raise money to outfit our research classrooms with mobile furniture and to bring virtual reality to our library.
