The Whitesides Post

Week of October 31 - November 6

Hello Whitesides Families,

Thank you for supporting our Halloween Parade this morning. It was fun to see so many of you there. The students had a great time!

First term ends Monday, October 31st. It's been a great first term. I love being at Whitesides! You have amazing children and I am so fortunate to be here and interact with them on a daily basis. Thank you for entrusting the care of your children to us.

Report cards will be available to view on your myDSD account on Friday, November 4th, after 5:00 p.m.

A huge thanks to our PTA for the FREE Halloween Carnival on Friday and a fun-filled Safety Week of activities. If you have not joined PTA, please consider doing so using this link:

Bond Information

As you cast your votes in the upcoming election, you will notice Davis School District has a bond proposal on the ballot.

If approved by voters, this bond will provide the district with $475 million to improve schools and build new ones over the next five years.

In addition to the major projects (including the construction of two new schools and the rebuilds of Bountiful Elementary and Sunset Jr. High), the district will use bond funding to upgrade security features, heating and cooling systems, flooring, ceilings, playgrounds, classrooms and other needed repairs in schools.

I encourage you to visit the website the district put together about the bond proposal – It is a great place to get information.
