News From the Nurse

It’s hard to believe another school year is almost over! This is a reminder that you will need to come to school to pick up your child’s medication by the last day of school. Those medications that are not picked up at the end of the year will be disposed of. Per D303 policy, we are not able to keep medication here over the summer for reuse in the fall. Students may not transport any daily medications or over-the-counter medications. All medications will have to be picked up by a parent or adult designee with the parent's permission.

Please call the health office with any questions: (331) 228-2204

Thank you and have a wonderful summer!

Nurse Peggy

Field Day Thank you!

A BIG thank you to Mrs. Mattson and Mr. Smith for organizing a wonderful Field Day at Davis. The weather was perfect! Also, we’d like to thank all of the parents for coming out to help supervise games and play with our students. We could not have done this without your support.

Here Comes the Sun!

Mr. Lundquist and the students at Davis have been busy creating a GIANT sun to brighten our hallway. The colorful mosaic was created with recycled “messy mats” from all of their artwork this year.

All 5th grade families, students and teachers are invited to a PTO sponsored breakfast on Friday, May 20th from 7:15-8 a.m. Breakfast will be served outside in the back of the building outside of the community room on the blacktop. We encourage as many families as possible to either carpool or if possible walk. Parking will be available at Redeemer Fellowship Church on the corner of Oak and 12th. They are gracious enough to let us use both the street and lot for parents to park during breakfast. We ask that you try your best to save spots on 12th street for our staff. See flyer HERE for details.

5TH Grade Lunch

A big thank you to our PTO for purchasing boxed lunches for all of our 5th grade students from Jimmy Johns. Students have already made their selections. Lunch will be served to 5th graders at 11 a.m. on the last day of school, Wednesday, May 25th. Students may bring a towel, if weather permits, and eat their lunch outside that day.

5TH Grade Clap-Out

It is hard to believe that in a few short weeks our 5th graders will be incoming 6th graders. We are so proud of all of the hard work they have put in this school year and are working on ways for us to celebrate their elementary years.

We would love to extend an invitation to all of our fifth grade parents/families to our 5th grade clap out. This event will take place outdoors at Richmond school. Details below:

When: Wednesday, May 25th

Time: Starts promptly at 2:20 p.m.


Clap-out formation:

You may line up on the grass area indicated in blue in the chart below. 5th graders will start by coming out door #11 (closer to Oak and 12th street) and walk down 12th. They will walk up Indiana (greeted by 4th graders) and then enter door #2 where they will be greeted by our third graders inside. They will then go back to their classrooms until dismissal.


  • We ask that you not hand your child gifts/balloons during the clap out. Please wait until after school for those items.
  • If you plan on a change in transportation for the day, please notify the main office with advance notice, preferably before the last day of school.
  • A lawn sign will be provided (Thank you PTO) in front of the school facing 12th street. Families are welcome to take pictures after school.
  • If your child will be taking the bus home, balloons are not allowed on our buses as they impair vision of the driver.
  • 5th grade classrooms will take class pictures during the day and those will be communicated via your child’s teacher.

We are looking forward to celebration!
