Davis A&M Family Newsletter

April 6, 2022

Principal's Message

Davis Students & Families,

It is finally spring, and warmer days are on their way. In addition to better weather, we're also excited for our fourth quarter. Davis teachers spent last week preparing another round of engaging academic activities as well as planning opportunities for our school to come together as a whole for learning and for fun.

This week will be welcoming students back by recognizing their academic and personal successes during quarter three. In grade level assemblies we will also provide school updates concerning the dress code policy and building procedures. As the year comes to a close, we want to keep our attendance high to ensure that all students end the year strong. Please continue to communicate student absences with the school.

Finally, state testing returns next week. Students will receive testing letters indicating which tests they are scheduled to take. Students who do not test on the designated days will have asynchronous learning at home.

If you have questions about any of the announcements, please call the school at 216.838.2500

College Now Update from Mr. Markusic

SENIORS: We are in the final stretch of your senior year! That also means we are in the final stretch of finalizing plans for after high school, including financial aid. Most seniors still need to fill out the FAFSA, which doesn't take much time and can potentially provide over $6,000 in free money. Remember, completing the FAFSA is a requirement to receive the Say Yes to Education scholarship, so if you have not submitted the FAFSA, you will not receive the Say Yes scholarship. Students and parents can work with Mr. Markusic, our College Now advisor, to submit the FAFSA. He can be reached by email at mmarkusic@collegenowgc.org or by call or text at 216-507-1768.

FRESHMEN, SOPHOMORES, AND JUNIORS: Your LAST chance to participate in the impact! program is coming up!
