Happy Friday Davis Families!
Welcome to the final Friday Family Update of the 22-23 school year. This has been an amazing year and we thank you for sharing your students with us. Our students have grown in so many ways this year. We are beaming with pride for our students' achievements, whether in the classroom, on the stage, on the field or court, they continue to make us so proud. They all represent Davis and your family so well. Thank you for your support of your students and for us!
There is a bit of information below that leads into summer but please watch out for periodic emails from me over the summer that will include back to school information. Those will start later in July.
We would like to wish a huge congratulations to Mr. Kevin Masterson, our administrative intern for the last two years. Kevin has accepted an assistant principal position at a middle school in another district. We couldn't be prouder or happier for him as he starts this new adventure. He will be missed!
Finally, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our exceptional team of educators and staff members at Davis for their tireless efforts, creativity, and unwavering dedication to our students' success. Their passion for teaching and their commitment to providing a nurturing environment have positively impacted the lives of our students in countless ways. I am truly grateful to serve as your principal and be a part of this incredible team of educators and of this amazing school community.
I wish you all a wonderful summer filled with quality time and memory making opportunities.
Grades will be posted on Friday June 2, 2022. Please check your students' Progressbook for the most recent grade card. Grade Cards will not be mailed home. Any questions or concerns regarding grades or grade cards should be emailed directly to Mrs. Frazee at Frazee_Laura@dublinschools.net.
Literacy involves reading, writing, speaking, listening, thinking, and interacting. When considering reading, research shows that choice and volume of reading are essential to reading development. Reading over the summer is a critical way to maintain and build upon the reading habits developed throughout the school year. Dublin City Schools values our students’ reading lives. Therefore, we will provide year-round opportunities for our students to engage in experiences that will allow them to grow in literacy. Click here for the middle school summer reading information.

If you are moving and withdrawing your student please contact our Guidance Secretary, Laura Frazee, at email@example.com or 614-718-8613. Per the Middle School Student Handbook, a withdrawal form must be picked up in the Guidance Department at least three days prior to withdrawal. This is especially important as we near the end of the school year so that we have enough time to forward your student's cumulative records to their new school. Thank you!
