Davis Drive Elem. Week of October 28

 

Hello Davis Drive Elementary School Families. This is the weekly message for the week of October 28

Students had a great time at our very first PTA Neon Dance Party.  The event was to celebrate the success of meeting our PTA’s membership and contribution goals.  Thank you to our school community for the support of our PTA efforts in many areas to help our school.  Our PTA contributes to technology, cultural arts, instructional programs, advocacy, special events, and supporting student throughout our school. We appreciate your continued support of the Davis Drive PTA and a big THANK YOU goes to the organizers of the dance party. 

 

We all realize that carpool traffic increase on rainy / cold days and we need to emphasize that patience is very important during carpool.  In the mornings, it will be extremely helpful for students to arrive at school before 7:35.  Our back carpool needs to close by 7:42 for staff to be in place of classroom duties.  Also buses begin arriving and leaving at the front of our school at 7:35.  If you arrive after 7:35, it is more likely that exiting the campus will be difficult.  Most important is that when students arrive before 7:35, they will be in their classrooms in time to get ready for the day.   Students need to be in the classrooms and ready for instruction at 7:45 to be counted as on time.  If you arrive at 7:44 or later, we need for parents to check children in at the front office.  We do not want to risk that a student will unsupervised during arrival time. 

 

Thank you to our families for the excellent food drive collections and participating in Red Ribbon Week activates.  Final totals are still being calculated and results will be announced soon. 

 

Media Center News:  On November 5th, 3rd-5th graders will be treated to a performance by the Story Pirates called, Lemoncello Live!, based on the Mr. Lemoncello's Library series by Chris Grabenstein.  Students have been learning about the author and series during their media classes and are very excited about the upcoming performance!  Flyers were sent home to purchase the books to support the PTA.  They can also be found here http://www.davisdriveesmediacenter.com/uploads/6/5/7/9/6579681/lemoncello_live_davis_dr_es_110518__1_.pdf   We have attached the  Flyer to this message as well.  (Just click on blue text -- Flyer) All order forms are due by Nov. 5th.
