DI Information Night will be held Thursday, September 14th at 5:30pm at David Elementary. (Parents and Students are welcome)

Destination Imagination (DI) is an amazing and fun program that promotes creativity, problem-solving, team building, project planning, and much more!

DI at David Elementary is open to 2nd-4th graders. David Elementary and CISD cover all team membership and tournament registration fees. Additionally, David provides classroom space for a limited number of teams to meet on-campus on Thursday afternoons. DI requires a firm commitment and parent volunteer support.

To participate in DI, you commit to BLOCK the day of Saturday, February 24th, 2024, for the Regional DI Tournament (held at TWHS) and your child commits to attend and actively participate in weekly DI team meetings.

Also, DI at David can’t happen without parent volunteers! The number of teams is solely dependent upon the number of parents volunteering to be Team Managers.

If you are committed to participating in DI for the 2023-24 season, please join us for the information night on September 14th.

If you would like more information about the roles and opportunities to support DI at David or student involvement, please contact Kelley Loftis, David DI Parent, at kloftis@kloftis.com.


The 2023-2024 David Elementary 4th grade class will continue the tradition of offering a fourth grade t-shirt this year. Each fourth grade student will have the option to pre-order this shirt for $15 (plus tax). The deadline to order is September 20th . We will not be able to exchange sizes, so please consider ordering up a size.

We will be taking orders on the North Houston Athletics website: https://nhathletics.com/david-elementary/product/david-elementary-4th-grade-dry-fit-shirt/.

Students are considered tardy if they're not in their classroom by 8:05 am. All students arriving to school after the 8:05 tardy bell must be signed in at the front office by an adult. Please note that 7:30 a.m. is the earliest time that your child may be dropped off. We do not have staff available to supervise students until that time.


  • What is rainy day dismissal?

Rainy day dismissal is called when we’ve determined the weather in the area is not safe to release bikers and walkers. This may include, but is not limited to, heavy rain, lightning, thunder, and/or heavy winds. A decision will be made by 3:05 pm and communicated to parents via text.

  • Why do we wait so long to call rainy day dismissal?

Unfortunately, severe weather in our area changes extremely quickly. When a rainy day dismissal is called too early, the bad weather frequently moves out of the area by dismissal time.

  • Should I call the school when there is a rainy day dismissal?

No. If you are unsure of your rainy day dismissal plan, please reach out to your teacher now to confirm. Your student’s transportation will automatically default to your prearranged “rainy day dismissal” choice. As long as your teacher knows your student’s rainy day dismissal plan, there is no need to contact the front office.

  • If I’m a biker/walker parent, can I walk up to the school?

Please utilize the carline if possible. In the event that we call a rainy day dismissal after you have already walked to the school from a nearby neighborhood, you will be able to pick up your child at the side exits.

  • Will I need my car rider sign for K-4?

Yes. ALL parents will need their car rider sign during rainy day dismissals, including 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade parents.

  • If I’m a car rider parent, can I walk up to the school?

No. For everyone’s safety, car rider parents are asked to please stay in their vehicles.

  • Should I go to the front office to get my child?

No. On rainy dismissal days, please only come to the front office in emergency situations.

  • Will rainy day dismissal take longer than normal?

Yes. We ask for your patience as we safely dismiss all students.


If your child is going to be absent from school, please call us at 281-298-4700 so we can be sure to mark their attendance accordingly. If you have any questions regarding absences, please give us a call or email Lori McCraw at lmccraw@conroeisd.net.


If you need to change your child's transportation, we kindly ask that you call the front office no later than 2:30 p.m. This gives us enough time to distribute all transportation changes before dismissal.


Breakfast/Lunch Accounts

Parents are encouraged to prepay for their child’s meals at www.myschoolbucks.com. Please allow up to 48 hours for payments to be applied to students’ accounts. There is a $2.75 charge per transaction to use the on-line payment system.

Free/Reduced Lunch

All parents must complete a volunteer application online before volunteering at the school or chaperoning field trips.
