Our annual Heritage Dinner, one of Davis' newer and most special events, will be re-scheduled for the spring. Previously scheduled for Friday, November 18th, the planning committee has decided to postpone the event and enrich it even further! We look forward to having all Davis families come together for this special evening. The new date will be announced very soon!
This Thursday, November 10th, is our annual Early Dismissal drill day. New York State requires all school districts to hold this annual drill to ensure students and staff know what to do in the event of an emergency. For this specific drill, the school day ends 15 minutes earlier than our normal dismissal time.
District has arranged for transportation to arrive at schools 15 minutes early, to facilitate the early dismissal process. Families who pick up their children should arrive by 3:00. If your child attends an after school program, they will report to that meeting location at the dismissal time and will be supervised upon exit of the building by their corresponding group leaders and staff. After the building is cleared, students attending after school programs may re-enter with their group leaders.
A backpacked notice about the Early Dismissal day went home on Friday, November 4th.
Call the school if any questions!

Davis students are invited to wear their Davis gear or school colors - blue and yellow - on Friday, October 7th to celebrate our first School Spirit Day of the 2016-17 year. As part of our first School Spirit Day of 2016, we will have lively Unity Day assemblies with K-2 and 3rd-5th to celebrate and review our 3 B's - Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Safe. This is how we earn "fins" at Davis! Our School Spirit days will occur EVERY month on the first Friday. For Davis gear, see the PTA website at davispta.org. However, blue and yellow colors work just fine, as school spirit is inside of us all. We look forward to seeing the coordinated efforts this Friday!!
Our annual Halloween Parade will shift to Monday, October 31st. The event was previously scheduled in our district calendar for Friday, October 28th. We will now be marching on Halloween.

Parking will be available in the back of the building, on the blacktop. Listen for our Robocall next week! We look forward to seeing you out there!
The national STOMP Out Bullying! campaign is recognized as one of the nation's most influential anti-bullying programs. Traditionally, the first Monday of October is recognized as a unifying awareness day of the STOMP Out efforts for bullying prevention and recognized by a coordination of BLUE shirts in schools. Since New Rochelle schools were off Monday, 10/3, the unification day will be Thursday, October 6th! Wear blue to support the cause and unify towards this important message.
