Message from the Principal - Anthony Bambrola
We hope that everyone is enjoying a restful and enjoyable summer with family and friends.
At Davis, we are busy getting ready for September - lots to do! Placement letters for incoming kindergarten will go out the first week of August, followed by 1st through 5th grades later in the month.
One of our big jobs this summer is making some friendly revisions to our Davis homepage. We want it to be a place that families can access helpful information in a simple to navigate manner, as well as highlights what’s new and “share worthy.” Over the next few weeks, you’ll notice some aesthetic and logistical changes to the site.
In addition, we are slowly launching our new Davis Twitter page - @DavisNewRo. Look out for it soon and follow us! And see updates from our feed on this homepage. We’ll provide some more info in our August Family Letter and at our Back-to-School Nights.
Thank you for your flexibility as we make continued improvements to our site.
All the best over these next few weeks and we’ll see you soon!
