Since 2011, DeKalb Middle School has enjoyed a sister-school relationship with Taizhou Baiyun Middle School in China.  This relationship has included two teachers from Taizhou: Victor Chen and Cindy Wang staying with us for 4 months each, working with DeKalb Middle School, McKenney-Harrison Elementary and some work with JR Watson.

We have sent Barb Beck, McKenney-Harrison, to Taizhou.   Nancy Helmkamp, DMS, will be working with Taizhou in the fall.  We have taken one trip with 24 students, teachers, and parents to Taizhou in 2013.   There will be another trip to China in the summer of 2015.  If interested, please email Brett Eltzroth at DMS, or check out the tour website

Aug. 21-23, a delegation of 20 students and 3 teachers will visit DMS and McKenney-Harrison.
