Our Mission is Learning!
At Davis Magnet School, our mission is learning. In order for students to learn, they have to be at school ALL day long. Our school day is scheduled from 8:15 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Wednesdays, all boys and girls attend school from 8:15 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. Please plan accordingly and make sure that your child is in their classroom line at 8:15 a.m., promptly when flag deck will begin. Any student not in their line at the ringing of the 8:15 a.m. bell will be marked tardy. Also, it is very disruptive to student learning when students leave for a portion of time in the middle of the day or at anytime prior to the final bell. Every minute of learning is precious and we want our students at Davis Magnet School learning during the school day. Please schedule appointments before or after the school day. With your support and help, we can work together as a team towards our mission.

We’re Still A Bargain
You’ve been to the grocery store, so you know what’s been happening to food prices. We feel your pain because it’s also happening to us. We’re a not for profit operation, and we do have to cover all of our costs so we have had to raise prices this year to do that. Even so, we think we still provide your family with a great bargain: nutritious, tasty, inexpensive complete meals that are here for your kids every school day. In fact, when you compare how much more groceries cost this year, our school meals might actually be a better deal than ever. We appreciate your business.
Elementary Schools $1.50 Breakfast/ $3.25 Lunch
Secondary Schools $2.00 Breakfast/$3.75 Lunch

Recycle! Help the Environment and Help our School!
Every Wednesday Davis Magnet School community members are invited to bring their recycled goods to our Ecology Center. From 7:45 to 8:15 a.m. family members can drop off aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and newspapers in separate bags. The door to Room 28, our Ecology Center, will be open by the black top every Wednesday morning. All proceeds from the recyclables will benefit our school green team and learning garden.
Every Wednesday is Yogurtland Day for Davis Families!
Every Wednesday Davis Magnet School families can help our school while enjoying a cool, tasty treat at Yogurtland! When you go to the Yogurtland located on Baker and Harbor in Costa Mesa anytime on Wednesday, be sure to tell them that you are with Davis Magnet School. Our school then receives 20% back from your purchase to help our school. Last year our school received just over $900 just from our Yogurtland proceeds! Thank you for your continued support of our school!
Read and Study your Math Facts Every Night!
Our students work really hard during the school day studying and learning. We want them to find balance and to enjoy playing and being kids. Therefore, we only want our students to read and practice their math facts as their daily homework practice. Periodically, students will receive a few various assignments to support their in-class instruction or will need to complete specific projects. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher. Thank you for your support and designating a quiet place and time for them to successfully complete their reading and math facts.
Flag salute starts promptly at 8:15 a.m.
Office Hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
