There are so many reasons to be proud to be Irish! I look forward to our Spaghetti Dinner every year because I love to catch up with old friends and meet new parents. It is also fun to see our students eating dinner with their families and hear them talk about their school day, their favorite teachers, and their friends. We served about 1200 dinners last Friday! Thank you for supporting our community.
Marty, Jason, and I could use your help. There are a few student behavior issues that I am concerned about. One of those pertains to cell phones. Because each of our students have a school computer, they do not have their phones in class. During lunch, students are permitted to be on their phones. We know lunch is often a time when our parents check in on their child's day. Some students have begun to send inappropriate messages to other students’ phones via AirDrop. Please take a look at your student's phone and show them how to disable AirDrop while they are at lunch to help prevent them from receiving a message they do not welcome.
This year has been our most challenging year for bus behavior. As a reminder, school rules apply on the bus as well as in the building. The consequence for failing to follow these rules could result in bus suspension, which is unfortunately an inconvenience to parents. Please have a conversation with your student, reminding them that they are to act appropriately to the driver and other students while riding the bus.

Thank You Irish Nation! The annual Davis Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction has come and gone but I wanted to take this opportunity on behalf of Davis Middle School and its Athletic Department to thank each and every one of you for making our fundraiser night such a huge success. Your generosity and support helped us raise important funds for the general athletic and our music departments. It is always great to watch the "Irish Nation" come together to make this evening one of great food, family and fun. Thank you to all of our patrons, volunteers and especially our local business community that were instrumental in making our silent auction so successful! Their support goes a long way in helping create better students, athletes and citizens!
John Bernans, Athletic Director
Bookfair will only be open for 3 more days during school hours and the titles are amazing this year. Books are the perfect gift. Please consider buying a book to support literacy and our school.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLASS AT HIGH SCHOOL
In the event that we would have a two-hour delay our middle school students will continue to go to their high school classes on the delayed schedule. Shuttles will run from the high schools to the middle schools.
NJHS will be collecting new and gently used winter clothes to donate until December 7. We will be collecting items like hats, coats, gloves, and scarves, but items like boots, event-specific clothing, and any items in rough condition cannot be accepted. All donations can be placed in the box that will be located in the main hallway in front of the media center.
