Davis Families -

We look forward to working with you as we begin the new school year at the end of August.  Just a couple of reminders prior to the start:

This newsletter will come as an email and will have information on Raider Day and the start of the year.  Information will be sent electronically with all forms, etc.  Please look for this to come out to your email in mid-August prior to Raider Day on the 25th.  It will also be on the Davis website as well. 

Raider Day – Wednesday, August 25

Raider Day will be on Wednesday, August 25 and information on this will be in the summer newsletter and email coming out to parents in mid-August.  All forms for Raider Day will also be included and must be completed prior to your child’s registration time slot.  If you are unable to make Raider Day, please have your child check PowerSchool for their schedule prior to the first day of school on Tuesday, August 31.    

WEB Leaders Information – 9th grade students

9th grade students that applied to be WEB leaders in June for the 2021 – 2022 school year should be checking their student email for important dates and information from Mrs. Battle.  Please make sure if your child applied to be a WEB leader that they check their student email in the next week.

If your student(s)  are not returning to Davis Junior High this coming school year, please send an email to Mrs. Gipson at or contact her at school at 586-797-2700.
If we know ahead of time, this can help determine our numbers and staffing needs as well as letting us know to be on the lookout for student record request forms that are sent by the new school.

Laptop Use Reminder... 

Students should NOT be using their school issued laptop for personal use. 
The TEAMS chat and call features are to reach out to teachers and staff and to be only utilized during class meetings as well as any platform that acts as a communication tool.  Students can set up homework groups but it must be school related

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.
