October 13 Principal's Message for Davis Drive Elementary

Hello Davis Drive Elementary School Families.  This is the weekly Principal’s Message for the Week of October 13, 2019.


We look forward to Monday and the week ahead with our students.  Our children are truly remarkable people with a bright future. Thank you to our school community for making a positive impact for our students.  In the week ahead we have field trips for first grade and fourth grade. We also have a PTA sponsored Cultural Arts Assembly on Wednesday morning.  Thank you to our PTA for supporting the cultural arts and arranging for the play on this coming Wednesday.  


On Thursday evening this coming week we will host a Parent Academy.  Our Area Superintendent, Dr. Tammie Sexton, will join us for the beginning of the evening.   The evening will begin with a short meeting in our gym beginning at 6:00 pm and then parents will select sessions see below for details:

Is your child stressed or anxious? Come join the fun at our Fall Davis Drive Elementary Parent Academy. This exciting event will be an opportunity for you to attend informational sessions to learn how to support your child socially, emotionally, and academically.

Be On Time For School

We know that as the season changes, it remains dark a little longer in the mornings.  It is still important to be on time daily for school. Teachers are to take attendance at 7:45 each day and if students are not in classrooms before the 7:45 bell, students will be counted as tardy.  We suggest arriving before 7:35 to ensure that students have time to prepare for the day. Daylight Savings Time will end on November 3.
