The Adventures at 5th Grade Astro Camp
5th Grade Astro Camp Update
5th graders had a full day of learning on Thursday. Students launched their own rockets that they built on Wednesday and attended adventure classes. Campers climbed up a telephone pole and lunged for a hanging tetherball. They also had the opportunity to climb up a cargo net then zip 700 feet across a meadow. Students went on a hike and explored Astro Camp's forest trails to learn about flora, fauna, and the history of the San Jacinto Mountains.
They are excited to come home and share all of the fun camp stories with their families. As soon as Mrs. Flores hears from the teachers that they have departed camp, she will call 5th grade parents with an estimated time of arrival.
5th grade students arrived at camp around 11:30 Wednesday morning. Students eagerly moved into their dorms. From there they had a brief orientation and tour of the camp grounds. Campers learned about planetary atmospheric conditions and states of matter. The hands-on experiments allowed students to learn about temperature, pressure, density, and other gas properties.
Campers also learned about force and the laws of motion to design and build a model rocket! On Thursday, students will have the opportunity to launch their very own rockets powered by water and pressurized air. At night our 5th graders did a group scavenger hunt on deep space objects. It was an eventful first day and students are looking forward to an exciting day 2! Stay tuned for more updates and pictures to come!

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.
The Davis Ducks are Ready for the 2013 School Year!
The Davis Magnet School staff and teachers are among the best around. They are a group of hard working professionals who collaborate with one another focusing on student learning. The teachers and staff look forward to another successful year working with our parents and community members to support student growth. Thank you for your continued support of our Davis Ducks.
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.
