DAVIS FALL PARTY AND COSTUME INFO

Fall parties are right around the corner and we would like you to be aware of our plans and expectations so that you can help your student to prepare.

DAVIS VETERANS DAY CELEBRATION

Davis will be observing Veterans Day on Thursday, November 11th. We will put together a video, similar to last year and will record a presentation that we will send out to families and that students will watch at 9 a.m. on Veterans Day. Although we cannot have guests inside our building, we would love to celebrate our Veterans with a drive through celebration where they can come and pick up a small gift as a token of our appreciation between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.

Please fill out this form to share pictures of your veteran or if they are attending the drive through. You can also call the main office at (331) 228-2200 to RSVP.

D303 Needs Assessment: 2021 - Parents & Guardians

Dear Parents & Guardians,

As the recipient of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Funds, we are required to conduct an annual needs assessment. The feedback you provide in this assessment is so valuable! It helps us to determine what resources and professional learning activities we should provide to our staff and students using the funds provided through the IDEA grant. Your responses to this survey are anonymous. The data will be reviewed by District administration along with the D303 Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SE-PAC), to support program development across levels. If you have multiple children receiving special education support, we ask that you complete a survey for each child. If you would like to speak to a member of our leadership team about your feedback, please feel free to contact Patti Palagi at patti.palagi@d303.org
