Letter from the Principal

  • Welcome Back Pelicans!  We are incredibly excited to begin a new year here at Joseph J. Davies Elementary School!  This promises to be a year filled with many opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have been before!  We are embarking on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and extracurricular activities, to encourage our Pelicans to be involved and stay connected!

    During the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of great work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in education. My staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel are committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize every opportunity in all facets of our Joseph J. Davies Elementary Academic program as well as our PBIS program that fosters Respectful, Responsible, Positive and Safe Pelican values daily. 

    We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!  Your active participation is key to the success of your young Pelican during their elementary school years.

    Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at Joseph J. Davies Elementary.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.

    Again, we welcome you to our Pelican’s Nest and to our wonderful learning community . . . a place alive with much energy . . . enthusiasm . . . and a high standard of excellence!  It is, indeed, a place where opportunities are abound!  Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!
