Dear Davis Families,

I want to invite all of our Irish family members to come to our second annual Fall Festival and 30th birthday celebration.  As you know, we want to spend more time bringing our community together to build the emotional connection to the Irish Nation.  The festival will be on October 25th from 4:30pm-6:30pm at Davis Middle School. We will have food, a carved pumpkin contest, tables for donation (including Cafe Thrift {gently used clothing} and the MoMM foundation {toothbrushes and toothpaste}), and games/activities for the families.  This year we have an old fashioned apple press where students and families can learn how to make homemade apple cider. We invite you to bring your families out for a night of fun and friendship!

GO IRISH!

Mr. Jason Snyder

Assistant Principal
