    Sophomore parent Erica Aponte is Davies' Quarter 1 Parent/Guardian of the Quarter for the school year 2023-2024. Erica has been a Parent-Educator Relations Committee (PERC) member for 2 years. This summer, she volunteered for community outreach in Smithfield and helped to recruit new parents for PERC at the 9th-grade welcome picnic.

(Join the workshops by registering here: www.DaviesTech.org/workshops) She is a positive and fun parent to work with. She hopes other parents will take full advantage of the free resources Davies' PERC has to offer parents.

    Spanish Session: 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28, 4/4, & 4/11 Final Celebration

    6-7:30pm in Davies' Patriot Dining Room

    Davies is pleased to once again offer our MegaSkills Workshop Program! This free, 6-week course is designed for families to help develop the life skills needed for success in school and beyond.

    What are MegaSkills?

    Confidence, perseverance, teamwork, motivation, caring, effort, focus, responsibility, common sense, initiative, and problem-solving. We call these eleven areas MegaSkills. Through our free program at Davies, parents can help their child:

    • Do better at school.
    • Strengthen family bonds.
    • Get along better with others by equipping them with these essential life skills.

    The MegaSkills program is intended with Davies parents in mind, but this is not the only audience! Bring your child, friend, relatives, or anyone else who has a connection with your student. We have parents who decide to attend solo and parents who decide to have their student attend with them. The choice is yours!

    When you take our free MegaSkills program, you can expect:

    • Weekly activities and learning strategies to use at home
    • To learn confidence, focus, motivation, and more MegaSkills in a relaxed, supportive environment
    • To receive a “Completion of Program” certificate
    • Refreshments served at each session
    • A chance to win a weekly door prize

    Register now for your space in this amazing free program. www.DaviesTech.org/MegaSkills

  • What is Davies' Home School Compact?

    As we strive for academic excellence and a high level of literacy for all of our students we realize that an educational institution cannot accomplish this goal alone. When a partnership exists between school, family and student and the goals and responsibilities for each party are clear, student achievement will improve. The following is a compact, which is a voluntary agreement between Davies’ administration and staff and our families and students with the sole purpose of helping all of our students to reach their full academic potential.
     
    Family Responsibilities (Read the full compact here)
    1. Through collaboration, participate with school staff in creating a school vision and quality educational program that is understood and embraced by all.
    2. Communicate to my child the value of an education and provide home support for the educational process.
    3. Establish a study time with my child and provide a quiet, distraction free environment.
    4. Participate in training opportunities with staff to improve teaching and learning.
    5. Communicate regularly with the school.
    6. Respect the school, staff, students and families.
