Davis A&M Family Newsletter

Principal's Message

Davis Families,

Last week we held our Academic Awards assemblies to celebrate student successes during the last quarter. Students received awards for demonstrating the Davis A&M Portrait of a Graduate Characteristics: Positive Contributor, Clear Communicator, Self Advocate, Critical Thinker, and Courageous Learner. Check out our Instagram @TheRealDavisAM to see moments from this celebration.

Crew Advisors will be reaching out to families to schedule Student-Parent-Advisor (SPA) Conferences that will be held on November 3rd and 4th. An SPA Conference is an opportunity for your student to reflect on the quarter, identify strengths and weaknesses, and to work with you and the advisor to set academic or social-emotional goals. Please be on the lookout for communication from your student's advisor to schedule the appointment.

Lots of good stuff below. If you have questions about any of the announcements, please call the school at 216.838.2500

YMCA Swimming has started for 9th & 10th Graders

A mandatory experience for a Davis A&M student is swimming lessons. This requirement allows all students to be prepared for later experiences in maritime safety.

ALL 9th and 10th graders have begun their lessons at the YMCA as part of their gym class. 9th graders swim on either Monday or Thursday depending on their schedule. 10th graders swim on Tuesday or Wednesday depending on their schedule. Please ask your 9th or 10th grader on what day their class goes swimming and make sure they have their swimsuit and towel packed for school.

After-School Academic Support

They were with us last year online, and we are excited to have our Cleveland State University tutors back, in-person, for after-school academic support. Whether your student would like help with current coursework or is completing credit recovery, support is available MONDAY - FRIDAY. CSU tutors will be present in the 5th floor atrium from 3:15 - 4:15. Snacks are provided, and students are not required to stay for the full hour.

If you have questions, please email Ms. Bowen at LBowen@DavisAM.org
