KIDS THAT TRI Update from Coach Germaine

All participants are doing a good job with the Kids that Tri Marathon program, but we need to step up our game. I am hosting zoom workouts on Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm, and more of you need to participate in that workout. HERE IS THE LINK.

We will be passing out equipment at the school on Wednesday January 27th 1pm. If you can't make it then, you need to email me (RGermaine@DavisAM.org) and we will set up another date and time for you to pick up the equipment.


I am proud of you all for taking part in this great program, let's keep it going.

Catch up & Enrichment for the remainder of Quarter 2

One week remains in Quarter 2 for students to complete incomplete work. Students should focus on assignments worth the most points (which is visible in the 'grades' tab in Schoology.)

If a student has completed all of their work and is satisfied with their grades, they will be assigned an Independent Enrichment Project on a topic of their choice.

Students will be told by their teachers if they have qualified for this opportunity.

Senior Spotlight: Laila Graham

My name is Laila Graham and I am in the 12th grade. I was born in Michigan and moved to Cleveland when I was 10 years old. My favorite Davis classes are and have been Physics, Maritime Science, American Government, World History. Outside of school, I also have interests in photography, drawing, painting, knitting. After graduating from Davis, I plan on pursuing further education in photography at the University of Akron.

From Mr. Markusic, our College Now Advisor

Senior Parents: From January to March, the seniors' college focus will be on finding money. The easiest way to find money is by completing the FAFSA. . Here are a few ways you can submit your FAFSA:

•Complete and submit the FAFSA at home or at a library

•Work on the FAFSA at home or at a library, then have your student submit it with Mr. Markusic so he can look it over

•You can provide students with your FSA ID and income forms (tax return and W-2s) and students can complete the FAFSA with Mr. Markusic.

•You and/or your student can schedule an appointment with Mr. Markusic, College Now advisor, to complete the FAFSA. Mr. Markusic is at Davis Monday-Thursday from 11am-1pm

•Contact College Now’s downtown Resource Center for availability on Saturdays at 216-241-5587.

Mr. Markusic can be reached by email at mmarkusic@collegenowgc.org or by text at 216-507-1768. If you or your student would like to schedule a time to meet with him, you can sign up for a time at www.tinyurl.com/MarkusicDavisAppointments.
