Principal’s Message
April 2018
 
Davis Parents and Students,
 
WYTOPP is eight school days away. We are in our final push to proficiency. Please do everything you can to have your children at school on May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. These are critical days for students. You can help us by ensuring that your child has had a good nights sleep and a good breakfast. I encourage all parents to have a conversation with their child about giving their best effort on the WYTOPP test and what BEST EFFORT looks like. Our attitudes alone can make all the difference in the world. We will make these three days POWER Testing Days and will provide fun and engaging activities outside of the testing windows.
 
In our Push for Proficiency we are working so hard as a staff to move more students to proficiency. Our first barrier is to break the 60% mark. Please remember that this is a new assessment and we don’t yet know if we will see a drop or increase district and statewide.  
 
Thursday, May 10 is our next opportunity to bring Parents, Students and Teachers together to make a plan for success. We will be meeting earlier for this Parent/Teacher Conference from 4:00-7:00 pm. This will be a strategic conference for students who are not passing classes. Please check your child’s grades and schedule to be here on that evening if you need to be. This may be the most critical time each quarter for you to ensure your child’s success. Please be here, and show us and your child how important their education is to you.
 
We just got our NAEP Results back from last year. In grade four mathematics, no state performed above Wyoming’s average NAEP score in grade four mathematics in 2017 (in 2015, two states had higher grade four math scores). Additionally, Wyoming was one of only six states with over 50 percent of students in the sample scoring proficient or advanced.
Please ensure that your children are reading 20 minutes each night and staying caught up on their assignments. Please be checking your child’s grades at a minimum weekly. If students have any grades below a “C,” please have them stay for study tables.
 
Seventh Grade students and parents - we will hold a Teton Science Information and Commitment meeting on May 22 at 6:00pm in the Davis Auditorium. Please plan to attend and start setting financial goals for next year. The cost will be approximately $340.
 
Thanks for all you do as parents to support our students success. Davis Middle School is “The Place To Be!”
 
Thanks,
Chris Brown
