3/28/2020 Please Note:

Due to the current Stay at Home —Work Safe Order issued for the city of Austin and effective through April 13, 2020, all in-person Welcome to Davis events are canceled until further notice.

We are working on virtual options in the meantime and will email more details after April 6th.

Rest assured we will be setting up additional play dates as we near the start of the new 2020–2021 school year, especially with the fabulous turnout thus far!

We hope you all stay safe and healthy until we are able to meet up again.

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.
