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.
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.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month - Resources and Information
This month, groups across the country committed to stop bullying will release new resources, campaigns, and efforts aimed at bringing awareness to this important issue facing our youth.
Additionally, Adams and Lincoln Elementary have volunteered to pilot the Olweus Bullying Prevention and Intervention Program. To date, each school site has formed a bullying prevention committee that consists of: a teacher from each grade level, school psychologist, special education representative, principal, and custodian that have participated in the 2 day Olweus Bullying Prevention Program training.
Overall, the training focuses on changing the climate and social norms so that bullying is not “cool” and to assure that no child is marginalized or excluded.
