Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

As you are aware, students have been participating in state testing throughout the month of April. This morning, the online state testing website experienced a problem throughout the state making it difficult, and in some buildings, impossible to test. Due to this complication, all state testing that was scheduled for today has been rescheduled for those buildings impacted by these technical issues.

New Testing Dates for Impacted Schools/Subjects:

Davis Middle School:  Math Grade 8April 24

The state has not released any additional information about the cause of these issues, but is working to resolve them before testing resumestomorrow. The District plans to continue state testing as scheduled tomorrow

Dr. Tracey R. Deagle
Principal

WALK-A-THON

Our 6th annual Walk-a-thon is on April 27th during 8th period.  This fundraiser assists PTO in bringing in speakers and programs as well as a charitable organization selected by our National Junior Honor Society.  This year funds will be donated to Samo's Soldiers.  

This walk-a-thon is an opportunity for Davis students to get outside, have fun, and come together for a good cause.  Information and fundraising envelopes were passed out in homerooms today. 

More information about Samo's Soldier's foundation:

Samo's Soldiers is a foundation created in memory of Stephen Alexander Mehrer who graduated from Dublin Jerome High School in 2010.  On October 8, 2017, Stephen lost his battle with addiction. With the support and recognition of NJHS, we will continue our efforts to help bring awareness to the seriousness of opioid abuse.
