Kindercamp

Thursday, August 4th, 9am-12pm

This summer, we are offering a Kindergarten transition camp to all of our incoming Kindergarten students. The camp is free to everyone, and will be a 3-hour session led by Davis Kindergarten teachers. Camp 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.

Please complete the registration form here.

Registration confirmation will be sent by the end of June, and a reminder 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!

School Supply Kits

School supply kits are available for purchase from 1st Day School Supplies for the 2022-2023 school year. This is a wonderfully convenient one-stop-shop, and a way to avoid crowded back-to-school supply shopping. Supply kits will be delivered to your child’s class before the first day of school.

If you would rather purchase supplies on your own, here’s the list by grade level: 2022-2023 School Supply list.

In addition: Headphones are also required for new students (K-3rd grades).
