We would like to extend a BIG DMS CHIEFTAINS shout out to the Lyons family and the Michigan Gateway Community Foundation for their generous donation to our school. The Lyons Reading Grant allowed us to purchase a new book for every child to read over the summer. This will help them continue to practice reading while they are away from school. Thank you so much!!!
