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.

Today the fifth graders are looking forward to the morning class in which they will simulate research on the surface of Mars with an interactive touch screen computer and state of the art rock wall. They will learn about Mars and the largest canyon in the solar system.

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.

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

From OC Health Care Agency - Measles Outbreak in Orange County - MMR Vaccine Highly Recommended

Measles Outbreak in Orange County
MMR Vaccine Highly Recommended

(Santa Ana) – Orange County has twenty-one confirmed cases of measles in 2014, the most reported by any county in California.  The Health Care Agency expects that the measles outbreak will continue to spread, and reminds the public that the best way to prevent the measles is by getting vaccinated.
 
Five of the 21 cases have been children, none of them immunized. Five have been healthcare workers who became ill after exposure to measles cases. The Health Care Agency will take every precaution to prevent outbreaks in health care facilities, schools and daycare facilities.  Unimmunized children, school and daycare staff, and healthcare workers who are exposed to the measles will be instructed to stay home for up to 21 days after exposure.
 
Measles is a highly contagious and potentially severe disease that causes fever, rash, cough, and red, watery eyes. Measles spreads very easily by air and by direct contact with an infected person.  People are contagious from approximately four days before the rash appears through four days after the rash appears. Anyone suspecting they have measles should CALL their medical provider BEFORE arriving at the medical office to avoid exposing others to the measles virus.        
 
Two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine are very protective; individuals who have not received two doses of MMR vaccine may be at risk of infection. Vaccination is especially important for children, health care workers, adolescents and adults who have not been adequately vaccinated, and people planning foreign travel. The MMR vaccine is widely available from medical providers throughout Orange County. A list of free and low-cost vaccinations is available on the Health Care Agency website.  
 
Protect Yourself and Family from Measles:
  • Children should receive their first MMR vaccine at 12-15 months of age. The second dose of MMR is given at 4 to 6 years of age before going to school.
  • Vaccinating children, adolescents and adults is the best way to protect infants who are too young to receive the MMR vaccine.
  • Vaccinations are very safe. The benefits far outweigh any risks. Side effects are usually mild, such as soreness where the shot was given.
  • Measles is found in many parts of the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Vaccination before traveling is recommended. Learn more about measles by visiting the Health Care Agency or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention websites.
