News and Announcements

Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Members:

Matthew Bishop, the 7th Grade Band Director at Dundee Middle School, has finished a video documenting this year's Midnight Mile.

The Midnight Mile is a 24-hour relay run challenge where Dundee Middle School students and parents are grouped into teams, with each running a one-mile leg of a continuous relay for 24 consecutive hours. Although runners may run as fast or slowly as they would like, walking is not permitted during the Midnight Mile.

In November, December and January, a variety of activities are planned to begin the transition from middle school to high school. Our goal is to make the transition as seamless as possible. Please review the resources on this page for more information.

Please click on the links below for an overview of transition activities.

Parents and students are invited to learn more about high school.
