Davis Families,

During the month of November, Davis Junior High will distribute reports cards electronically.  The first marking period grades will be sent electronically to families at the end of the day on Friday, November 8, 2019.  To receive the report cards, parents will need to have a secure PowerSchool account.  Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to Monday, November 4, 2019.  The report cards will then be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.  If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action.  The report card will be automatically sent to you.

Please note: If you have a child in elementary school, those report cards will be issued at the end of the day on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 after sche
duled parent-teacher conferences.

Also, as a reminder, Principal/Parent meetings provide parents with information about the school as well as current education issues in an informal setting. (see calendar for dates) – all are welcome to attend!   


- 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.
Replacement ID's are $5 and can be purchased in the main office at Davis.
