Kinder Camp

Due to the current school closure in effect in AISD, we are postponing the decision about Kinder Camp. If we are able to do so, we will schedule the camp experience before school is back in session for the 2020-2021 school year. Keep an eye on this page for more information. Here are some details from our previous Kinder Camps:

  • Who: All incoming Davis Kindergarten students
  • What: Jump into kindergarten exploring and discovering a fun-filled week of learning activities, play centers, music, dancing, outdoor play, story time, and much, much, more! Meet new kinder Dolphin friends, too! Get a head start on kindergarten and let the adventures begin!
  • When: Typically the 1st week of August, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
  • Where: Davis kindergarten classrooms
  • Cost: TBD

School Supplies

We’re partnering with 1st Day School Supplies to offer easy online ordering of the exact items on the Davis School Supply list! Click here to order. Deadline July 1st. All orders will be delivered to the school and will be waiting for you in the classroom at the Ice Cream Social (Meet the Teacher) event in August. If you prefer not to order through 1st Day School Supplies, please see the list here of supplies needed and bring them to the Ice Cream Social to leave in the classroom when you and your child meet the teacher!


Spirit Gear Preorders


We will not be doing a Spring pre-order for spirit gear this year.  Look for an option to purchase a Davis t-shirt in the Fall.
