Davis Magnet School Receives Gold Ribbon School Award
Davis Magnet School has been recognized as a Gold Ribbon School for our success in closing the achievement gap, engaging parents and community and use of technology through our project based learning, which focuses on improving achievement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The project based approach to learning has resulted in 75 percent of Davis students meeting or exceeding English language arts standards and 74 percent meeting or exceeding math standards, based on the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium data. These percentages are 39 to 125 percent higher than district, county, and state averages.

Computer Coding Opportunities for Students
Davis Magnet School students in grades kindergarten through 6th grade participated in “Hour of Code.” Hour of Code is a part of Computer Science Education Week. This is a national initiative to promote computer science education across the country. Computer science education promotes logic, problem-solving and creativity, all skills that are valued by today’s businesses. It is important to provide our children with the opportunity to learn computer science early on, especially with the increase in technology focused careers.
Below are two websites that provide additional coding opportunities for students of all ages. With the holidays around the corner, I encourage you to share these websites with your children during downtime or while traveling.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we hope you will consider promoting these additional opportunities in computer science.

Our Mission is Learning!
At Davis Magnet School, our mission is learning. In order for students to learn, they have to be at school ALL day long. Our school day is scheduled from 8:15 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Wednesdays, all boys and girls attend school from 8:15 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. Please plan accordingly and make sure that your child is in their classroom line at 8:15 a.m., promptly when flag deck will begin. Any student not in their line at the ringing of the 8:15 a.m. bell will be marked tardy. Also, it is very disruptive to student learning when students leave for a portion of time in the middle of the day or at anytime prior to the final bell. Every minute of learning is precious and we want our students at Davis Magnet School learning during the school day. Please schedule appointments before or after the school day. With your support and help, we can work together as a team towards our mission.

Recycle! Help the Environment and Help our School!
Every Wednesday Davis Magnet School community members are invited to bring their recycled goods to our Ecology Center. From 7:45 to 8:15 a.m. family members can drop off aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and newspapers in separate bags. The door to Room 28, our Ecology Center, will be open by the black top every Wednesday morning. All proceeds from the recyclables will benefit our school green team and learning garden.
Every Wednesday is Yogurtland Day for Davis Families!
Every Wednesday Davis Magnet School families can help our school while enjoying a cool, tasty treat at Yogurtland! When you go to the Yogurtland located on Baker and Harbor in Costa Mesa anytime on Wednesday, be sure to tell them that you are with Davis Magnet School. Our school then receives 20% back from your purchase to help our school. Last year our school received just over $900 just from our Yogurtland proceeds! Thank you for your continued support of our school!
Read and Study your Math Facts Every Night!
Our students work really hard during the school day studying and learning. We want them to find balance and to enjoy playing and being kids. Therefore, we only want our students to read and practice their math facts as their daily homework practice. Periodically, students will receive a few various assignments to support their in-class instruction or will need to complete specific projects. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher. Thank you for your support and designating a quiet place and time for them to successfully complete their reading and math facts.
