Principal's Message

Happy October Davidson Families,

Thank you for coming to the school spending time with us this week for parent teacher conferences. Teachers and parents connecting to partner together for students success is critical to kids being successful learners. Teachers have been assessing students, working on projects and building learning communities that support each and every student. They were excited to share with you where your student is academically, where they may need to grow and tips and tricks to make that growth happen.

This month we will begin to form our official reading groups for students who may need a little extra support. If your child needs that extra support, you will receive a letter via email. If you have concerns or questions please reach out to your teacher and they will find you the answer or direct the question to someone who can.

Some fun things in October are in store for the kids. Please note the information about literary pumpkins that Mrs. Williams has included below. It is a fun for kids and staff alike to participate in literary pumpkins. We will have also have our first spirit week the last week of October ending in a storybook hero dress up day on Oct. 29th. We are not having fall parties but on Oct. 29th teachers will be planning fun activities for students to do throughout the day that are fall themed.

As always, if you have questions or concerns do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to help and support.

Mrs. Stauch

Ms. Cerra's Art Studio

Hello Davidson families!

Our school is participating in a creative fundraiser with Art to Remember that allows you to purchase keepsake products customized with your child's art. There are over 60 products, and many are less than $15. These make great gifts, and a percentage of every purchase goes right back to our school art room to for things like new supplies and art materials. Papers should be going home with students starting October 15th which will include a personalized code for looking up your student’s work! Once you have that code you can just click on the link below and enter the online order code shown on your child's order form or to search for your child's artwork. Then, have fun shopping!
