DAVIS HILL COMMUNITY UPDATE

June 21, 2021

Dear Davis Hill Community,


I was going to write a lengthy note this week about the end of of year and all that we have been through... and then I thought to myself... no one wants to read that this week! So what I will say is this... to everyone (Staff, parents, students, community members):


Thank you! Thank you to everyone who acted in a manner of support, kindness, grace and understanding throughout this pandemic period.


Thank you! Thank you for your notes, your words of thanks, your gestures of support and your understanding of the complexity of the situation we found ourselves in.


Thank you! Thank you for supporting our #DHDragons on the journey from learning boards, to remote learning, to hybrid and all the way back to full in-person learning.


Our experience through the pandemic has only solidified my belief that the DHCommunity is a special place that I continue to feel grateful to be a part of it.


Please note that I will be working over the summer, but will be taking some time away from the office as well. If you plan on dropping anything off at the school after Wednesday June 22nd, please email ahead of time to ensure that the office is open. I will also be sending updates as plans/ dates for next year are solidified, so please keep an eye on your email.


Couple of other quick notes:

-Our tentative Open House date is Thursday, August 26th (AM Session 10-11/ PM Session 5-6). The Open House is an opportunity for students and families to walk through the building after classroom assignments have been announced. Classroom teachers are not in attendance during the Open House.


-Classroom Assignments will be available in mid-late August prior to the beginning of school. I will provide the specific date that assignments will be available in the PowerSchool Parent Portal when it is announced by Central Office.


-General supply lists will be emailed later in the summer.


-There will be the opportunity for students to utilize some computer programs via Clever over the summer vacation period. I am working on putting together an email to outline what is available and how to access ... keep an eye out for that information.


Kindly,
Jay Norton, Principal

Quote of the Week:

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."
