Be a Heart Hero!
Start with Hello Week - February 6 – 10, 2017
(Friday is Wear Green Day!)
In every school and in every community there are young people who suffer silently because they feel left out, alone or invisible. Social isolation is a growing epidemic in the United States and within our schools. Excessive feelings of isolation can be associated with violent and suicidal behavior. In fact, one study reports that chronic loneliness increases our risk of an early death by 14%. Furthermore, young people who are isolated can become victims of bullying, violence and/or depression. As a result, many pull further away from society, struggle with learning and social development and/or choose to hurt themselves or others.
During this week, we will participate in different activities that will hopefully make everyone aware that people often feel alone at school and we need to make everyone feel safe, connected and comfortable. It’s everyone’s job to make sure that the person next to them does not feel alone. Have a great week and start by saying Hello!!!

Welcome to DDE Middle School
Welcome to the Dwight D. Eisenhower (DDE) Middle School! We are located in West Berlin, Camden county, NJ. Our middle school houses grades 4 – 8. There are approximately 330 students total enrolled. Upon graduating from DDE our students attend Overbrook Regional High School in Pine Hill. We are proud to be a Choice School for the state of New Jersey.
In addition to the core subjects - language arts, math, science and social studies - all DDE students enjoy special area classes in health & physical education, multi-media music, art, technology and open access library. Accelerated Reading and Math supplement the core program and provide opportunities for differentiation and advanced learning in the classrooms. Furthermore, all DDE students are assessed in literacy and math three times per year to provide the educational staff with relevant data to ensure targeted instruction. Students who score below target scores on benchmark assessments are eligible for additional support services through Response to Intervention (RTI).
Our students in grades 6, 7 & 8 have the opportunity to play a variety of sports and to become members of the Student Government Association and National Junior Honor Society. All students can earn Dragon Dollars by displaying our school-wide behavior expectations of being safe, respectful and responsible. These Dragon Dollars make students eligible to earn special privileges.
Parents have full access to their child’s current academic and behavior performance by logging into our student database – OnCourse. In OnCourse parents can see their child’s grades, current assignments and anecdotal behavior information. All teachers may be contacted via OnCourse or telephone (leave a voicemail) or email.
We are confident your children are going to enjoy their middle school experience at DDE!
