Principal's Message

Mr. Ruesink

Fran Ruesink

On behalf of the staff of Dell Rapids Middle School, welcome to our home! 

Empowering Each Other to Excel is our precept. 

When school staff, students, parents, and community join forces to assist one another, the resulting education can be amazing.  We have a fantastic staff who are dedicated to guiding the adolescents of Dell Rapids to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.  We are blessed to have wonderful parents who are vested in our children’s education.  We welcome the collaborative efforts of parents and community to enhance the education of our students.  Together we work to have our students focus on improving themselves by becoming productive citizens of our community and world.

We concentrate on creating an encouraging and secure climate to enhance and optimize student learning.  Teachers work to challenge students to acquire pertinent information, strategically think through possibilities, and investigate carefully to solve problems critically.

We are excited to begin on the adventure of a new school year and encourage you to become involved with the school and our community.

Quarrier Pride lives proudly in our middle school.
