Top 5 Tips For Parents Preparing Your Child for the Best Year Yet

Tip #1: Make a Back-to-School Transition Plan, Together

Involve your child in deciding when to roll back bedtime hours, morning preparation, and establishing routines for reading and practicing math facts on a daily basis. It will relieve beginning school jitters, and, because your child was involved in the decision-making, it will help he/she to take ownership in the process and pride in the results.


Tip #2: Establish that Making Mistakes is OK

So many children and parents see mistakes as a negative experience. It can create undue stress and anxiety that hinders student performance. Making mistakes shows that students are learning! Parents: discuss small, daily mistakes you might make, what you learned from the mistakes, and how you plan to move forward. Your child will learn from them.


Tip #3: Spark Student-to-Teacher Communication

It’s common for students to struggle in communicating with their teachers about everyday issues or challenges. Resist the urge to be the parent who immediately jumps in to save the day. Instead, encourage your child to ask questions and self-advocate. At home, use role-play conversations that will prepare your child to discuss how to handle challenges like forgetting homework or failing a test. 


Tip #4: Set Realistic Goals Early

Encourage your child to brainstorm academic, social, and emotional goals such as making a new friend or helping the teacher in the classroom. Envisioning the school year helps students think about what they want to achieve and how they will accomplish their long-term dreams. 


Tip #5: Emphasize Asking Questions

When children ask thoughtful questions about what they are learning, they actually remember more because they are actively engaged in the process. Create a climate of questions in your home by encouraging your child to ask questions about events, family members, and news events.

Are you interested in becoming a part of the Davis Magnet School family?

Davis Magnet School is a math, science, and technology magnet school located in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. We are not your typical neighborhood school, but serve students from all across the district. We focus on providing our students hands-on learning opportunities with a special emphasis in math, science, and technology while teaching all of the California content standards.


Below are some helpful details as to how students are admitted to Davis.

  • All attendance is based upon a computerized lottery that is administered at the district office.
  • The deadline to apply is typically from February 15 to March 15. The link will be posted on the top of the Davis Magnet School website. It is not first come, first serve but all new students must have a submitted application prior to the deadline listed on the application.
  • The lottery is typically scheduled in May for the following school year.  Parents receive an email in May notifying them if their child was accepted to Davis or the wait list number their child received.
  • Current Davis siblings have priority in the lottery.


If you are interested in learning more about Davis Magnet School, please consider attending one of the monthly tours hosted by the principal, Mrs. Flores. The tours are scheduled for the second Friday of the month at 9:00 a.m. beginning in October. They usually last about an hour and best suited just for parents. There is no need to RSVP, but simply arrive in the front office by 9:00 a.m.

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.
