DDE Week of December 22 Principal's Message

We wish for our Davis Drive Families a wonderful holiday.  There will be no school for students for two weeks. We look forward to seeing our students and families in the new year-- on January 6, 2020.  The next principal’s message will be sent on January 5, 2020. We are looking forward to a whole school field trip in February to the Carolina Hurricanes.  Specific information about the field trip will be provided soon. We are also excited that when we return we will add some steps to increase efforts toward recycling in our cafeteria.  

We are excited to announce that Davis Drive Elementary School has been selected to participate in a smoothie pilot program using Yoplait® low-fat yogurt and Juice Alive products! Smoothies meet strict USDA nutrition standards and are part of the reimbursable meal program as well as Smart Snack compliant. Yogurt is a quality protein with good sources of vitamins and 100% fruit juice concentrate provides the equivalent of ½ cup of fruit. Blue raspberry and strawberry flavors will be available beginning January 8 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The cost for the smoothies will be $1.00.  Students will be able to enjoy dispensing their own smoothies from specialty equipment designed for portion control.
