Kindergarten Class of 2021-2022
To help ease the transition for incoming kindergarten students (and their families!), we invite you to be a part of the Welcome to Davis Club! There will be fun and engaging events and opportunities for students to meet future classmates, and for parents and guardians to meet future and current Davis parents. Families of new students in other grades are more than welcome as well, just know that the events are designed with Kindergarteners in mind.

Welcome to Davis
We encourage you to also subscribe to our weekly newsletter, Dolphin Digest, to learn about other events, news and opportunities at Davis!
This summer, we are offering a Kindergarten transition camp to all of our incoming Kindergarten students. Families will choose one 3-hour session for their child to attend. The camp is free to everyone and will run 9am-12pm August 2-5. Every camp session will be the same and will include activities in a kindergarten classroom, a tour of the school, and recess time outside. Students will need to bring a water bottle and a snack. At this time, AISD has a ‘mask optional’ policy, so students will not be required to wear a mask when attending Kindercamp. Every session will be led by two Davis Kindergarten teachers.
Please complete the Kindercamp Registration Form (link below) by Thursday, June 17, to let us know your preferred date for attending Kindercamp. We will do our best to accommodate first choice of date, but as camps fill this may not be possible. Kindercamp registration confirmation will be sent by end of June and more details will be sent to families in late July.
We are so excited to welcome our Kindergarten Dolphins to Davis and hope everyone will be able to participate in this transition camp experience!
