The Davenport Community School Board finalized this school year’s schedule and set the last day of school for students as Friday, May 29th. This date reflects the new state law that allows school districts to use a 1,080 hour schedule instead of 180 days. The change allowed districts to “bank” hours for bad weather. Students K-12 will fulfill their 1,080 hours on May 29, so they will not have to make up one of the weather-related cancelations from this school year.
Below is the schedule for the final week of school:
May 25, 2015
- No School – Memorial Day
May 26, 2015
- Regular day of school
May 27, 2015
- Regular day of school – 1 hour early Wednesday dismissal
May 28, 2015
- Regular day of school for students
May 29, 2015
- Last day of school for students
- 2- hour early dismissal for students (12:25)
Elementary and middle schools across the Davenport Community School District gathered at the Eastern Branch Library on Saturday, March 7, to compete in the grades 4-6 Battle of the Books Competition. Each year the Iowa Association of School Librarians nominate around 17 book titles for the students to read, and then in March, vote to determine which book will win the Children’s Choice Award. During the Battle of the Books each team had to answer one hundred questions based on the 17 nominated Children’s Choice Books. Eisenhower Elementary finished first with McKinley Elementary finishing in second place. The Eisenhower Elementary team will now represent the district at the regional competition on March 28. The Eisenhower team: Corbin S., Brighton H., Carter S., and Isaac T.

We are very pleased to have a digital marquee in front of our building! This purchase would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our Eisenhower families and PTA. It’s a great way to get announcements out, promote school events, and keep our families updated throughout the year. Thanks to our families and PTA for making this happen!
