PRINCIPAL’S REPORT FOR NOVEMBER 2017

 

AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK (NOVEMBER 13-19)

Our school celebrated American Education Week by inviting our parents into our classrooms to experience a school day.  We had Davenport School Complex Visitation on November 14th. An excellent turnout of parents visited our school complex. I received positive feedback from our visitors. All enjoyed heading back to school for a couple hours and watching their children tackle new learning experiences.

 

LIVING MYTHOLOGY MUSEUM – OUR GIFTED and TALENTED STUDENTS

On 11/16/17, our GT students hosted a living Mythology Museum. This was the culminating project that followed a study of mythology and characters. Students presented information and dressed the part of characters in mythology. Parents, fellow students, and staff attended this entertaining and informative event. Thank you Mrs. Kimberly Pettit, our Gifted and Talented Teacher.

 

MOVIE NIGHT- Cars 3

Our Parents’ Club hosted a Davenport Movie Night at Elementary on Friday, November 17th. It was well- attended and students enjoyed the movie! These fundraisers support our school’s trips and FUN Day. Most importantly, they are a way for our students to socialize and enjoy time together after school! Thank you Parents’ Club.

 

RENAISSANCE BEEF and BEER at CHARLIES

On Saturday night, 11/18/17, our school community gathered for a Renaissance Fundraiser at Charlies in Somers Point. There was a great turn out and Mr. Stephen Santilli, our Assistant Superintendent, joined us to show his support too. We made some money for our school and had a great time together!

 

HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE FOR THANKSGIVING

Our Parents’ Club organized our school’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.  Our Parent’s Club helped with gathering food items and getting them ready for distribution. Several Davenport Complex families received food baskets for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will assist these same families during the Christmas holiday with gifts and food.

 

It feels good to know that we care for our Davenport families in a special way during the holidays. We realize how truly fortunate we are to have our homes, our families, and good friends. Thanks again to Parents’ Club!

 

THANKSGIVING WEEK

There were many festivities at Davenport School Complex. Our teachers and staff members worked with parents to create special activities, crafts, and food celebrations. Teachers invited parents to join us for plays, feasts, and special programs. Our Kindergarten, Preschool, and MD classes decided to host feasts as a group.

 

We had many visitors, parents and grandparents, from our extended Davenport School Family join us in the fun. It was warm and wonderful seeing all gather together. There is truly a great love and energy in the air at this time throughout the Thanksgiving and Winter Holidays here.
