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.

Invitation for input on Newport Mesa’s LCAP Funding Goals/Invitación para la entrada en de Newport Mesa LCAP financiación Objetivos

Dear NMUSD Stakeholder (Parent, Guardian, Staff, Student, Community Member):

Roughly one year ago, the state of California created a new model for school district funding and accountability.  As a result, each district now develops an annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).   The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).   Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans.  The plans will describe the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals.  The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

We would like to invite you to review Newport Mesa’s goals and provide your feedback on a short survey.  The survey will be available from April 27 through May 22, 2015.  The survey is available via the following link: http://tinyurl.com/15-16LCAPGoals

You may also review all of the district’s LCAP documents on our dedicated webpage at: http://web.nmusd.us/lcap

If you have any questions or would like to provide additional input, please send an email to: lcap@nmusd.us

Thank you.

Estimados grupos interesados de NMUSD (padres, tutores legales, personal, estudiantes, miembros de la comunidad):

Aproximadamente hace un año, el estado de California creó un nuevo modelo para proporcionar fondos a los distritos escolares con el fin de que éstos rindan cuentas. Como resultado, cada distrito ahora desarrolla un Plan de Rendición de Cuentas y Control Local (LCAP).  El LCAP es una parte crítica de la nueva Fórmula de Fondos de Control Local (LCFF).  Cada distrito escolar debe incluir a los padres, a los educadores, a los empleados y a la comunidad para establecer estos planes.  Los planes describirán la visión general del distrito escolar para sus estudiantes así como las metas anuales y acciones específicas que el distrito tomará para lograr la visión y las metas.  Los LCAPs deberán enfocarse en las ocho áreas identificadas como prioridades estatales. Los planes también mostrarán la manera como se usará el presupuesto del distrito para ayudar a lograr las metas y cada año se evaluará si las estrategias del plan han mejorado los resultados.

Nos gustaría invitarlos a que repasen las metas de Newport Mesa y nos proporcionen aporte en una corta encuesta.  La encuesta estará disponible del 27 de abril al 20 de mayo de 2015.  La encuesta está disponible en el siguiente vínculo http://tinyurl.com/metas15-16LCAP

También, pueden repasar todos los documentos del LCAP del distrito en nuestra página dedicada a éstos: http://web.nmusd.us/lcap

Para preguntas o si quisiera proporcionar aporte adicional, por favor manden correo electrónico a: lcap@nmusd.us

Gracias.

Extreme Heat Survey/Extremado Calor Encuesta

Dear Newport Mesa Family/Estimada familia de Newport Mesa,

Approximately 40% of classrooms across the Newport-Mesa Unified School District do not have air conditioning. Costs associated with adding air conditioning to those classrooms exceeds $45 million. Phase-in plans are currently being developed to air condition all N-MUSD classroom spaces at all school sites. However, based on current projections of air conditioning 1 to 3 schools per year, starting with those most inland in 2015 (Tewinkle, California and Killybrooke), it will take the District several years to accomplish.  In the interim, we need to examine our current operational procedures with respect to extreme heat and determine if those procedures are best meeting the needs of our students, staff members and parents.

On days where our community experiences extreme heat (over 90 degrees), the current procedure is to keep schools operating as usual.

There are a number of factors that go into planning a school calendar and your input will be extremely helpful as we evaluate possible options for the future. 

Thank you for participating in the survey.  http://www.k12insight.com/k/SsVRTUsUSXsPsPsP

Espanol:
Aproximadamente 40% de los salones de clase de todo el Distrito Escolar Unificado Newport-Mesa no tiene aire acondicionado. Los costos asociados con la instalación de aire acondicionado exceden los $45 millones. Actualmente, se están desarrollando planes en fases para instalar aire acondicionado en todas los espacios de los salones de clase de N-MUSD en todas las escuelas. Sin embargo, basado en las proyecciones actuales de instalación de aire acondicionado en 1 a 3 escuelas por año, empezando en con las más lejanas de la costa en 2015 (TeWinkle, California y Killybrooke), le tomará al Distrito varios años llevarlo a término.  Mientras tanto, necesitamos examinar nuestros actuales procedimientos operacionales en lo que respecta al calor extremo y determinar si esos procedimientos están cubriendo las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes, miembros de personal y padres de la mejor manera.

En los días de extremado calor en nuestra comunidad (arriba de los 90 grados), el actual procedimiento es mantener a las escuelas funcionando como siempre.

Hay un número de factores que son parte de la planeación del calendario escolar y su aporte es extremadamente
útil durante nuestra evaluación de posibles opciones para el futuro.  

Gracias por participar en la encuesta. http://www.k12insight.com/k/SsVRTUsUSXsPsPsP

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!yogurtland.jpg

Read and Study your Math Facts Every Night!

Students reading.jpegOur 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. Math facts.jpeg
