Every summer we take a look back at the wonderful things that have happened during the previous school year. The 2012-13 academic year at Davenport Community Schools was filled with amazing successes relating to our students, staff, and academic programming. Our educators have garnered Teacher of the Year Awards, our student athletes have won state championships, and one of our student robotics teams placed highly in a World Championships event!

Norm Bower, Director of the Davenport School Foundation, awarded $41,000 in scholarships to 30 graduating seniors at the June 10, 2013 Board meeting. Students from Central, North and West High Schools, along with graduates from the Kimberly Center, received scholarships ranging from $12,000 over a four-year period to $300. Another $16,000 was awarded to students who received multi-year awards in previous years.
The students and their parents were congratulated by Board president Ralph Johanson and the students had a group photo take with Board members and Dr. Tate.
On Tuesday, June 4, 2013, members of the North Scott Rotary joined Fillmore Elementary students to plant three trees at the school. The trees were dedicated to the students and staff who lost their lives in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. At the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, the North Scott Rotary Club will install a plaque among the trees to honor the memory of the students and staff of Sandy Hook. This is one of a number of joint events involving the North Scott Rotary and their “adopted” school Fillmore Elementary.
