The PTO is doing a great job improving student opportunities at DMCS!  The DMCS PTO recently purchased microscopes for Mrs. Kemp’s Life Science classes.  Enough microscopes were purchased to allow 2 students per microscope for the entire work period!  Students were able to spend time exploring cells.  Each pair worked together to make a “wet mount” slide with onion skins and dyed it so they could see the cells more clearly and then very carefully drew what they saw.  This was a priceless experience in viewing real cells and using valuable equipment.  The students were awesome!  The students are looking forward to the next time they get to use these wonderful optical instruments.
