Principal’s Message
October 2018
 
October has arrived! I spent some time on SchoolDigger.com this last week and the news for Davis is great! We are ranked 22nd out of the 65 Junior High and Middle Schools in the state of Wyoming. This is up eight places from last year. When you add the screener of schools with over 40% of students on Free or Reduced lunch (Title I Schools) we then rank 4th in the state of Wyoming. Congratulations to our students, staff and parents for your amazing work.
 
We just completed our Reading Comprehension Screener (FAST CompEfficiency) last week. Those students who are not above the 80th percentile are not reading at home. Please put in place in every Davis Middle School Student’s home the expectation that we read every night. If we do not have our children reading every night at home we are not meeting our parental obligations to support their education.  
 
Davis Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences will be held on Wednesday, October 10. We will hold conferences arena style in the gym from 4:00-7:00. This conference is held two weeks before the end of the quarter, allowing for time to fix any concerns.  
 
The League of Innovative Schools will be touring Davis Middle School on October 11. The League of Innovative Schools is made up of 102 leading school districts in our Nation. They will be here to see the mentoring we are doing to support each student and the math interventions we are providing for all students. We are honored to be part of this league and have them touring our school.
 
The Davis PTA will be sponsoring the Annual Zombie Stomp on October 31. We encourage our students to join the fun from 3:15 to 5:30pm. The entrance fee is $7 and there will be a spook alley provided by our Robotics Team.
 
One of our Davis Goals is to ensure a safe, orderly and collaborative school environment.  We have a Zero Tolerance for Bullying policy at Davis and want to ensure all of our student feel safe avery day. We are reading Restart in our homerooms; this is a great story about the change of a school bully. We also will have a school assembly on November 2nd at 2:00 with author Shelly Morris the author of Mustaches for Maddie. She will have an anti-bullying message for our students.
 
Thanks for all you do as parents to support our students success. Davis Middle School is “The Place To Be!”
 
Thanks,
Chris Brown
