A Message from Our Principal

Dear Families,

Happy Holidays! 2014 is coming to a close, and that also represents tax time. Arizona public schools can benefit from your tax credit donation. Up to $400 can be donated specifically to Homer Davis and its many extra-curricular activities. Please take some time to read the Credit for Caring form at the end of the newsletter. We have listed the guidelines and contact information if you have any questions. The Homer Davis front office staff is now accepting tax credit donations. Tax credit donations benefit our school immensely. We appreciate your continued support, and the donations have such a positive impact on all of our students. Please call Tina Solomon at 696-8251 if you have any questions.
 
Thank you for all of your generosity and being so supportive of our school. Working together we are developing life-long learners! We encourage you to continue your volunteer efforts at school during the spring semester as we prepare for spring and DIBELS assessments. Remember that the goal is to have each family volunteer at least one hour each quarter per student. December is a very busy month, and provided for your review are upcoming events where we encourage your participation: 

  • PTO Meeting: Wednesday, December 10 (2:30 p.m.) 
  • First Grade Holiday Musical: Tuesday, December 16 (1:00 & 6:00 p.m.)
  • Family Movie Night: Friday, December 12 (5:00 – 8:00 p.m.)
  • Bus & Campus Evacuation Drill: Monday, December 15 (9:00 a.m.)
  • End of the First Semester: Friday, December 19 (noon dismissal) 
  • Winter Break: December 22 – January 2     
  • School resumes: Monday, January 5

Enjoy a great book, and practice math facts during the break. On behalf of the entire staff at Homer Davis, please enjoy the winter break with family and friends, and have a Happy New Year!
 
Wishing you a healthy holiday season, 

Chad Miller
