Update on School District Water Testing
Please see attached letter from Dr. Osborne outlining the latest water testing results for district schools.
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. Please join us in the front semi-circle on Halloween as our K, 1 and 2 students march in costume!! 1st grade will begin our march at 9:05 a.m., followed by 2nd grade at 9:25, and finally Kindergarten at 9:45. 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. Find more information at stompoutbullying.org.

This week, you received a memo home regarding our "rainy day" baggy initiative. We seek to offer as much variety, as staffing and space allow, on those rainy indoor recess days. Students are encouraged to store, in class, a baggy with books, drawing pads, puzzles, etc. for recreational use. Please see the memo for recommendations on what to bring and what to please keep at home. : )
Thank you, Davis Families and Staff, for wonderful Back-to-School evenings! It was a pleasure to welcome you back for a new school year and discuss what is ahead.

Please join us this Thursday, September 15th, to meet our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade teachers and hear about the upcoming school year!

We are always exploring ways to make our practices most inclusive. If you have a birthday coming up, and prepare to celebrate in class, please consider lots of options for healthy AND inclusive celebrations for all students. See memo, which was also backpacked home!
