Thursday March 5th is a Professional Development day for Staff and Friday March 6th is Teachers' Convention. This means that staff will be working but there is no school for students. You don't have to be young to continue to learn. Learning is important no matter what your age.

Staff Appreciation Week will be held during the week of February 9 - 13
Our staff works very hard and often goes above and beyond at creating a wonderful learning environment for your children. Our staff includes: teachers, educational assistants, our school secretary, our caretakers, consultants, school psychologist and school counsellor. Taking the time to say "thank you" to any or all of these hard working people at Davin would be greatly apprecaited. Treats in the staff room, gift cards, massages, pampering, lunch, are all wonderful ways to say "THANK YOU".
Friday January 30 is a staff professional development day. This means there is no school for our students.
School resumes at 8:53 on Monday February 2nd.

Friday January 9th has been designated as Ugly Sweater Day at Davin! With a week of very cold weather, we have decided to have a bit of fun on Friday. If students would like to participate, we ask that they come to school wearing an ugly sweater.
We look forward to seeing the variety of ugly sweaters from students at all grade levels. Staff are also invited to dress up in their ugly sweater and have a bit of fun to end a very cold week!
