From the Principal

As we reach the middle of May and into June, we typically see an increase in behaviors where students can be suspended from school.  As the nicer weather breaks and students begin thinking about summer vacation, please talk to your child about the importance of continuing to do their best.  We want to end the school year on a positive note and we appreciate the time you spend making sure your son or daughter understands the importance of finishing the year strong.  

Progress reports will be coming out soon and the end of the year exam study guides will be coming to your children through their teacher as well as available on the UCS website.  As they become available, we will put the information in the newsletter.  

- Brian Shepard, Principal

The Davis Junior High Mission is dedicated to creating a successful partnership of staff, parents and community to prepare our students to be positively-contributing members of society, and productive and responsible citizens.  We promote understanding and respect for all people and strive to inspire our students to become knowledgeable, caring, self-directed and productive learners who readily meet the challenges of a diverse world and global economy.

Students must have their ID card on them at all times during the school day.   All students will receive an ID at the beginning of each school year. 
Please click on the Raider Review tab for all information, consequences, and more  with regards to the school ID requirement.
