Davis Drive Elementary Midsummer Principal Message

Hello Davis Drive Elementary School families.  I am sending a midsummer message to parents just to keep you informed. I hope that all is well for your families as I am looking forward to an excellent school year.  What to expect over the next few weeks: 

Class Lists (posted on Thursday, August 22 – 5:00 pm)

These will be posted on windows at the front entrance to the school on Thursday, August 22 at 5:00 pm.  Many factors are considered in forming class lists and they are posted once the lists are finalized. 


Meet Your Teacher Day (Friday, August 23)

This is a drop-in event and you can visit your assigned teacher / classroom during the assigned time.  During Meet Your Teacher, you will also be able to get information about transportation, school lunches, volunteer sign up, medication drop off, and our PTA. 

  • 9:00 am until 11:00 am Meet You Teacher for Grades K, 2, 4, and Yancey
  • 1:00 am until 3:00 pm Meet Your Teacher for Grades 1, 3, 5, and Semyck

(Kona Ice will be her from 11:00 until 2:30 on Meet Your Teacher Day for families who wish to purchase a treat and to possibly use re-fillable cups).


The First Day of School is Monday, August 26 for Grades 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.  Kindergarten students follow a staggered entry schedule to be posted with the class lists.  Each kindergarten student will attend only one day the first week of school (August 26 – August 29).



We hope that all school families join our PTA as the PTA supports our school in many ways from providing Cultural Arts Programs, Volunteer Opportunities, Social Events, Technology Initiatives, Teacher Support. Although PTA membership is not required to be involved in the school, the PTA provides many opportunities for our school -- a strong membership makes a positive impact.  For additional information, you may want to view the PTA Website at


School Supplies

Many of our families already ordered supplies online to be delivered to school in time for Meet Your Teacher Day.  If you did not order supplies, you can still order the supplies on-line until Thursday, August 1.  The Web address to order supplies online is

If you order at this time, the supplies will be delivered to your home address and there is an additional shipping charge.  Another option is to purchase school supplies at a local store.  The supply list is attached to the message and is available on our website at  The online option is for parent convenience and it makes no difference if you choose to purchase the supplies on your own. 


I look forward to seeing our students soon.  It is always a pleasure to experience the excitement of school.  We expect our students to be engaged in meaningful learning every day.
