8th Grade Parents - Please join the Administration and Guidance Team at Scioto High School tonight at 7 pm for a Parent Information Night!

Dear Davis Families,

Mark your calendars!  We are only one week away from our 2nd annual CommUNITY Night which will take place on Thursday, February 21st from 5:00-6:30pm at Davis Middle School.  This fun-filled evening is designed by our 6th grade students as a way to honor the community we have become and to share our stories with others. Some of the many events involved in this evening are: games, a talent show, a Hall of Stories in which students display written and visual items that represent them, interactive community art pieces, a photo booth, a bake sale, a scavenger hunt, and much more. Admission to this evening is free, but some carnival type activities require a ticket.  Tickets will be available for purchase at the front door for $1.00 a piece. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Buckeye Clinic in South Sudan. Please join us for this extravaganza that is sure to be a highlight of the school year.

In order to make CommUNITY Night a success, the students are asking for your help.  As part of the evening, the students will be holding a bake sale. If you are willing to donate any baked goods, this would be greatly appreciate it.  Please sign up using the sign-up genius.  Please send your donated baked goods into school with your student on Wednesday, February 20th.  Please put your baked goods in individual baggies to be sold. All proceeds for the bake sale will be donated to the Buckeye Clinic in South Sudan. Thanks for your help!

Kristin McDonough and Seth Martin

ATTENDANCE REMINDERS

EARLY PICKUP

How do I pick my child up early from school?    Please write a note for your student with the time they need to be picked up and have them drop the note off to the attendance office before 8:28 am.   They will be given a pass from class and will be waiting in the main office to be picked up. Our goal is to minimize class interruptions.

REMINDER ON STUDENT ILLNESS

All students leaving school ill must go through the clinic.   If your child calls or texts you and asks to be picked up due to illness, please advise them to to the clinic.   The clinic will assess the situation and contact you.

INTERACT CLUB

Interact Club is collecting donations during each lunch period to support their SOLE HOPE program. Some Ugandans have an issue with jigger bugs in their feet because of the lack of shoes. Interact members have been busy cutting out shoe kits from old blue jeans.  These shoe kits will be sent to Uganda to support the SOLE HOPE program. What do they need? Donations of money. For each shoe kit we send, we must also send $10 to pay for shipping and pay a person in Uganda to make the shoes. Students may donate money at lunch.  For a $1 donation, they will receive a SOLE HOPE logo cling for their chrome book. If they give $2 or more, they will also receive an engraved pencil. Both of these were created by our Interact students and made in our MakerSpace at Davis. For more information, contact Susan Jacoby at Davis or check out SOLEHOPE.org.
