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.
Join the PTA!
We are thankful to have such an involved and supportive PTA at Davis Magnet School. Because of the PTA, our students are able to experience multiple enrichment opportunities. Special assemblies, field trips, and Art Masters are just a few of those opportunities. Additionally, students benefit from other resources such as books, magazines, and technology to use within the classroom. Teachers also depend on PTA funds to purchase needed classroom supplies.
By purchasing a $10 adult membership and/or a $5 student PTA membership you show your support for Davis Magnet School. The membership also has family perks around the community such as discounts to various businesses.
While membership forms are accepted all year round, our class membership kickoff drives ends Friday, September 26. Davis Magnet School had a record breaking 900 members last year and we are hoping to meet or even exceed that number this year. Parents, students, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and neighbors are all welcome to join. The membership form is attached. Please consider completing it tonight and return the form with your child.
Thank you for your continued support. Go Ducks!
