The Davis Ducks Staff will be ready for the fall! Make sure your child is ready too!
Most people believe that teachers spend the 73 days of summer vacation with their feet up, not thinking about school. While teachers do utilize this time to rest, rejuvenate, and possibly travel most teachers actually participate in professional development, teach summer school, and plan for the upcoming school year.
While I believe it is a common fact that teachers work hard, I consistently depend on data. Below is a list of statistics provided from an article in Edtechmagazine.com.
These are just a few statistics that demonstrate the extra time and money that teachers spend on average. Remember that these are averages. Davis Magnet School is not average and neither are our teachers.
This summer while our teachers are preparing behind the scenes for another successful school year focused on student learning, it is equally, if not more important, for your child to prepare as well.
It is critical for your child’s on-going success to continue to practice the important skills learned this past school year. Below are some suggested learning opportunities parents may provide for their young scholar.
1. READ! Your child should read EVERY single day. No matter how old or young, it is really important for every student to read. Our local libraries are an excellent resource for free reading materials and fun events motivating students to get involved. The Newport Beach Library Summer Reading program begins June 21 and the Costa Mesa/Mesa Verde Library Reading program kicks off June 23. Visit both of their websites for additional information.
2. Practice those math facts. Use flash cards, tens frames, Cheerios for counters, or the countless apps that are available. Whatever tool your child finds most interesting, utilize it to reinforce the foundational math skills.
3. We live in a beautiful place with countless resources for science exploration. Back Bay Science Center, Muth Interpretive Center, Newport Beach Sea Base, and the Corona Del Mar Tide Pools are just a few outdoor areas to explore. In addition, the Long Beach Aquarium, Discovery Science Center, ExplorOcean, and Lyon Air Museum are all only a short drive away.
4. My final suggestion is to designate time for your children to write. Many students struggle with writing. Summer is a wonderful opportunity for them to write letters to family members, keep a journal during summer camps or while traveling, write creative stories about animals or people at the beach, or research animals, various summer climates, other countries or people of interest. All of these ideas may be enhanced with technology too.
However your family decides to spend the 73 days of summer vacation, I encourage you to keep learning fun. Build upon your child's passions and provide opportunities to problem solve and think critically.
I wish you all a safe, healthy, and happy summer. I look forward to seeing each of you at the Meet and Greet on Friday, August 29 and then ready to learn on the first day of school on Tuesday, September 2nd.
Take care and Go Ducks!

2014 4th Grade S.C.O.R.E. Street Hockey Champions!
Your Davis Magnet School Ducks unseeded the six-time defending champions, Friends Christian Private School on Saturday, May 10. The Davis Ducks went undefeated in the Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E. 4th Grade Street Hockey Shootout. The fifteen fourth graders hustled and played well together as a team in a very physical final match-up that led to a 9-4 tournament championship victory. Congratulations to Coach Campbell and the entire 4th Grade Street Hockey Team! We are so proud of you and thanks for bringing the cup to Davis Magnet School! Go Ducks!
Davis Ducks Only Team to Win Multiple Trophies
The Davis Ducks LEGO Robotics Team was the only team at the recent F.I.R.S.T. LEGO League of Southern California competition to take home multiple trophies.

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.
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.
