Davis Elementary Newsletter

Davis Elementary Newsletter   October 1, 2010

        Nancy Beck, Head Elementary Principal

We’ve had an excellent beginning of the school year.  Learning is well underway with students working hard to meet expectations. Please continue to see that your child is at school each day, ready to learn. Encourage your child to pay attention in class, work hard and complete homework each day.  All students will succeed if we work together to make it happen!

     Marcus McIntosh Reads to Students!

On Monday, September 20, Marcus McIntosh of KCCI Channel 8 in Des Moines, read And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street by Dr. Seuss!  The assembly was the kickoff for the read across Iowa activity planned for third grade students. Thank you Mrs. Hughes, for arranging for Marcus McIntosh to come read to our students.  It was great!
