VETERAN’S TRIBUTE ASSEMBLY

Dear Davis Middle School Students and Parents,

On behalf of the administration, staff, and students we would cordially like to invite any U.S. Veteran to our annual Veteran’s Tribute Assembly to be held on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, in Davis Middle School’s gymnasium at 9:00 AM. Any student or parent of our Davis Middle School family can invite a veteran to attend. ALL veterans are welcome. The purpose of the assembly is to recognize all those veterans who have served or are serving the United States and to remember the sacrifice they have made to protect our freedom. Please make arrangements to attend and/or invite a veteran.

We would like the students of Davis Middle School to invite any relative, friend, or acquaintance who has served or is serving in the United States military. At a particular time during the assembly the veterans will be asked to stand and will then be recognized. Please be sure that all invited veterans sign in at the designated table prior to the start of the assembly so that all can be recognized.

Please remember that a “veteran” is anyone who has “served” or is “serving” in the military forces of the United States. This person did not have to be involved in an armed conflict or war.

Sincerely,

Davis Social Studies Dept.

DAVIS COMMUNITY NIGHT

Mark your calendars for our first Davis Community Night! This event will take place on Thursday, November 16th at Davis from 5:30-7:00 pm. This will be an opportunity for students to showcase what they have learned throughout our 6th grade CommUnity Unit. Students will be sharing their stories through many different mediums-portraits, personal narratives, talent show performances, and Ted Talks. Bol Aweng, a Lost Boy from Sudan who came to share his story with the students, will return that night so that students can further interact with him. He will also be bringing artwork and his books that students can purchase. In addition, there will be interactive art experiences, games, bingo, a dessert bar, a scavenger hunt, the debut of our 6th grade camp video, and much more. As part of our Davis Give Back, all proceeds from this night will be donated to the Buckeye Health Clinic in South Sudan. Please plan on joining us on the 16th!
