Davenport's Weekly Update

Message from the Principal
Greetings Davenport Family,
It is hard to believe, that five (5) days from today the school year is over! Once again, I say, “THANK YOU”! To every parent, teacher, support staff, custodian, bus driver and student, thank you for your patience, flexibility and support this entire year. The pandemic made us think outside the box on procedures, routines and many aspects of every day life.
The students and teachers had a great Student Appreciation Week and are looking forward to the fun activities we have planned for our final week of school.
Parents: Please be aware that our last three days - Monday - Wednesday, June 14 -16th are abbreviated days. Student dismissal each day is 2:00 pm.
Have a great weekend.

Below is a message from Mrs. Schenck:
Thank you so much for a spectacular show! I'm beyond proud of our students!
(I'm sure your kids told you how much I cried last night! Happy tears of pride and joy!!!!)
This year's choir was truly special! They worked so hard in such a short amount of time so that we could put on a great show! I will really miss them next year when they all go off to Miller School!
Thank you, parents, for all of your support! I hope we made you proud!
For the final unit of the year, the GT students at Davenport combined imagination and engineering to become Imagineers. This Imagineering unit was designed to pull back the curtain to show you how artists, designers and engineers work together to create theme parks. The students have been going behind the scenes with Disney Imagineers and completing project-based exercises to design a theme park of their very own.
Students have created their own Land using Environmental Storytelling which will allow their guests to step into their story to experience it.
With each lesson and activity, students also learned about diverse career disciplines that come together to create a theme park such as:
Visual and graphic design
Civil, mechanical and software Engineering
As the Imagineering process came together, students created blueprints and graphics, then built a model of an attraction as a culminating activity. Many went beyond expectations and their creations could certainly be marketed to Disney Imagineers!
Mrs. Taylor's 1st grade class learned about print making in art with Ms. Cronin.
