News from the Nurse
PTO Meeting March 23rd
Our next meeting will be held at the St. Charles Public Library. Please join us at 6:30pm in the Carnegie Room for a brief PTO meeting followed by a school board candidate forum at 7:00pm. The PTO is not endorsing any candidates. We are expecting at least 7 of the candidates to attend so this is a great opportunity to be informed before the April 4th election.
Please fill out this form if you plan to attend and have a particular question you would like to ask the candidates.
(FYI, the meeting is for adults only, but children aged 8 and older may visit the children's area of the library while their parents attend the meeting, if you trust your children to be respectful, responsible, and safe!)
Classroom Volunteer Opportunities
We are excited to offer parents the opportunity to assist our specials teachers with projects in and out of the classroom. Please check out this Sign Up to find a spot that works for you!
Check back often as opportunities will be added.

5-Essentials Parent Survey
Dear Davis Parents and Guardians,
The 5essentials Parent Survey is open through March 31. All responses are confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. To take the survey, visit survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois and select the parent survey. A supplement report will be generated if at least 20 percent of Davis parents complete the survey, so please help us to reach that goal!
So far we have only 10% participation.
Thank you for your participation to help us understand the conditions at Davis to guide improvement.

Empower Opportunity to Connect with China
Hello families! I am excited to announce that we have the opportunity to connect with a class from the St. Lorraine International School in China to share our learning over Zoom. This connection is part of Read Around the Planet which celebrates reading and learning. During our connection, the students in China will teach our students some Tai Chi. Our students will be teaching the students in China something. This something will be determined by the students who sign up to be part of the project. Because of the time difference, this connection will be taking place in the evening for us. We will also be meeting as a group after school several days leading up to the connection.
This opportunity is an optional activity for all interested students. Any student interested must be able to stay after school until 4:30 on the following days:
- Tuesday, March 21st
- Thursday, March 23rd
- Tuesday, April 4th
- In addition, students will participate in the connection on Thursday, April 6th from 7:30 until 8:30pm. Families are welcome to join us for the connection.
