Dolphin Splash Updates!
Good afternoon Davis Drive Elementary families,
Another great week in the books! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and our Dolphins come back rested on Monday ready for more learning. I'm proud to announce that our school is in the WRAL Viewers Choice Awards finals! We also have two staff who made it to the finals: Ms. Potts and myself. Please take the time to vote and pass the link along to any of your friends and family. You can only vote once per email (this is different than the nominations)
Vote WRAL Awards here!
Please do not have your child bring in any sports equipment in to school to use at recess. The PTA has funded recess carts for all grade levels and we have plenty of balls for the students to use.
Please see below for directions on how to create a Parent observer account for Canvas.
Looking ahead to the end of the year, a great way to memorialize all of the fun and growth our students will have this year, is with a yearbook.
This year, to cut down on waste, we are pre-selling yearbooks and they are now on sale.
- From now until the end of the year yearbooks are $20.
- From January 1 until April 5 they will be $25.
- Personalization options are available.
If your student wants a book before school ends, they will need to be purchased by 4/5.
Books will be delivered to students in the last two weeks of school.
If you are able, please consider donating youth underwear for all sizes and genders. We need to restock our inventory in the Health Room. thank you!
