Welcome to 7th grade! My name is Lorrie Holmes and I am honored to be your child's teacher this year.  This is my 7th year at DCMS.  My husband, Mark, and I have 3 wonderful children.  Our oldest and only girl, Austyn, is 20 and is a dental assistant in Jackson, Mississippi.  Will, our middle child, is in 9th grade at DCHS and plays football and runs track for the Jaguars.  Our youngest, Ty, is in 6th grade at DCMS and plays competitive basketball for the Mississippi Spartans. We are a sports loving family and enjoy cheering on the Jaguars and the Ole Miss Rebels each year!

I love teaching 7th grade! Watching my students grow academically, emotionally, and physically throughout the school year simply amazes me.  I have high expectations for all of my students, both academically and behaviorally.  My goal is to create a safe and fun learning environment, build character, and instill a love of reading in my students.  

My email address is and the school's phone number is (662) 349-6660 if you ever need to contact me.

Thank you for sharing your child with me! I can not wait to see the growth that will be made throughout the school year!
