Principal’s Message
March 2019

As of this morning we have 52 students on the D&F List. Please check your child’s grades and support them in getting all their grades at the passing or excelling level. If you can’t help them get all their grades passing, you need to send them to Study Table on Monday and Tuesday. Any students with a failing grade will have their parents contacted for a personal invitation to come to Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences on Wednesday. Please plan on attending. Remember that our Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences for Third Quarter will be held this Wednesday, March 6 from 4:00-7:00pm in the gym and commons. 4:00-5:00 will be by invitation and 5:00-7:00 will be for all parents/students. Please help us end Quarter 3 with no students on the D&F List.
The PTA Fundraiser Assembly will be held on March 22nd, the last day of Third Quarter and a half day. The 100 students who met the minimum benchmark will go to the Aspen Cinemas at 8:00 and return about 10:45. At 10:45 the Davis student body will go to the pool where Elle Porter and Lindsay Welling will be pushed into the pool. We will then all go to the gym where Brad Francis will be duct taped to the wall and Devon Parks and Jason Mitchell will have a pie thrown in their face. We will have those students qualifying for dodgeball play the teachers. If we have time left over we will have a filler activity in place.
We have changed our 4.0 Quarterly Party policy to ALL A’s.  Our Quarter 2 celebration will be this Thursday, March 7th.  Students will be going to see “How to Train Your Dragon - The Hidden World.”  We appreciate those students who strive for excellence.

March and April are our Push for Proficiency months. Our goal is to break the “60% of our students being proficient” barrier. Please help us by ensuring that your children are here 90% of the next 90 days. As always, please make sure your students are reading at home every night for the next 90 days.  

Our two big WY-TOPP days will be April 29th for Math and April 30th for ELA. We need all students here these two days. I would love it if we didn’t have to make up one test.  Thanks for your support of these two important days.

Our Boy’s Basketball Teams ended up with a 4/15 record for 7th and 5/15 for 8th. We had a great season and I thank the players and our two super coaches Mr. Herald and Mr. Parks. Our Girl’s Swim Team took First Place at their first swim meet on Saturday. Our Math Counts Team finished strong.  Our Robotics Team ended with Team 8335c-Wyatt Sawyer, Aaron Gillette, Kade Sims, Keegan Graham winning the Middle School Excellent Award. Our Talent Show Winners were Kennade Belnap, Jimmy Newton, Kira Milam and Aubreyanna Jones, Aubrey Horrocks, and Robert Ellsworth.

If you haven’t, I would love parents to go onto the Davis web page, under the Parent drop down, and fill out our HRS Survey. We need your feedback and hope you feel that Davis is working hard to create a safe, orderly and collaborative school environment.

Doreen Platt, our Media Director, has scheduled Jason Wright -  a New York Times Bestselling Author to visit Davis Middle School on April 26th. Jason’s best selling books include Christmas Jars, The Wednesday Letters and The Seventeen Second Miracle. Jason will be holding an assembly with our students and Davis will host a community event with Jason Wright on the evening of April 26. Save the date. Every student will be reading The Seventeen Second Miracle in Homeroom and will get a personal copy. Please read this book as a family. This will be an amazing experience for our students.

We are checking students on their basic multiplication facts during lunch. Please support your children in learning their basic facts. We are focusing on 5’s, 6’s and 7’s this month.

We have a Winter Fun board up in the Commons. I want students to bring pictures of them having fun in the snow and cold to post. Please send your child with a picture for us to post.
Thanks for your support,

Chris Brown
