All About ME!
Welcome to 7th grade! My name is Lorrie Holmes and I am honored to be your child's teacher this year. This is my 10th year at DCMS. My husband, Mark, and I have three wonderful children. Our oldest and only girl, Austyn, is 23; Will, our middle child, is a senior this year at DCHS. Our youngest, Ty, is in 9th grade at DCHS and plays football and basketball for the Jaguars and competitive basketball for the Jones Elite Bucks. We have two grandchildren, Crew, born May 2019, and Nova Kate, born May 2021. We are a sports loving family and enjoy cheering on the Jaguars 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.
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 cannot wait to see the growth that will be made throughout the school year!
All 6th through 12th grade students have both a DCS User account (for computer access, wifi login, permissions grouping, and more) and an Office 365 Account for email, One Drive, Teams access, etc. The student accounts are very similar to the faculty accounts for familiarity and interoperability.
Students' usernames are constructed using the following formula:
First name, first initial + Last name, first initial + last 6 digits of their lunch number.
Example: If Amy King's lunch number is 1234567, her computer/wifi username is ak234567, and her email address is email@example.com
If they have never logged in to their email, the password should be Welcome20
If you also need to have the password reset:
Select "Username / Password Issues" from the Help Topic drop-down at the bottom. Fill in all required information.
At this time the password reset response may be a couple of hours, but you will receive a temporary password as soon as possible.
They can log in to their email here:
