    DCSD’s Web Site offers Activities & Resources For All Grade Levels:

     

    A District and community priority while schools are closed is to provide students and families with what is needed to keep students engaged and on track for success.

    The Davenport Community School District has created a website filled with online learning resources to support families and students at this time, organized by grade level. We hope that this website will assist you during the school closure.

    Throughout our school closures, we plan to keep this website up-to-date with learning activities, resources, guides, and more for students and families. Please use the navigation bar at the top of the website to locate your student’s grade level resources and information.

    DCSD post from Superintendent Dr. Kobylski

    Following Sunday’s announcements from Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, all spring activities of Iowa’s high school Unified Activities partners – the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, the Iowa High School Athletic Association, the Iowa High School Music Association, and the Iowa High School Speech Association – will be prohibited through the state’s K-12 school recommended closure of four weeks. Gov. Reynolds announced the recommended closure in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Public Health, in response to community spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Iowa. Prior to April 10, the schedule will be assessed as necessary with information from the Governor, Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa Department of Education, and activity partners at the IGHSAU, IHSAA, IHSMA, and IHSSA. Per CDC guidelines recommending the cancellation of gatherings of more than 50 individuals for at least eight weeks, events following the planned four-week school closure in Iowa will be updated as the situation develops.

    Mentors In Violence Protection

     

    MVP (Mentors in Violence Prevention) is one of the longest-running and most widely influential gender violence, sexual harassment and bullying prevention programs in the world.  Mid-City has 8 trained student MVP mentors who facilitate student discussions designed to challenge and change social, cultural, and institutional norms that support abusive behavior.

    This semester, students in Mr. Youngblood’s health classes at Mid-City are participating in MVP  to learn about interventions for specific situations, foster a peer culture that motivates everyone to help create a healthy school culture, and to build a sustainable cadre of students that are able to carry on the program for years to come.  Mentors Maelynn Rogers, Demiico Wilson,  and Arisa Clements lead a classroom discussion on sexual harassment and abusive relationships on February 28, 2020.

    Shout Out To Mid City’s Art Teacher Ms. Lewis

     

    Ms. Lewis was featured in the “MidCoast Fine Arts Newsletter”  

    Latoya D. Lewis has a studio area she calls Art of the Spirit as part of a small co-op of galleries on the Bucktown second floor. Currently she’s an art teacher at Mid City High School in Davenport. Her sense of the importance of teachers is clear from her own experience growing up.

    She credits her first and fourth grade teachers with recognizing and encouraging her love of art. She was one of four students in 4th grade given the opportunity to be transported by bus for part of the day to experience a new state of the art elementary fine arts academy in Chicago. 

    In high school, she was taken aside by Mr. Isaiah Curry to encourage a focus in architectural engineering. He personally helped her pursue her education. However, her passion for teaching art prevailed. She studied secondary art education at Southern University and A&M College and took additional art courses at Louisiana State University. She received her master’s degree at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. That importance of teachers has remained in her heart; she and fellow students are organizing a scholarship in the name

    Mid City Math Teacher wins Award

    Mid City math teacher Liz Mastalio was awarded the Dr. Robert E. and Phyllis M. Yager Exemplary Teaching Recognition Award from the University of Northern Iowa College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences. The award recognizes two UNI alumna each year who are nominated by a professor for demonstrating excellence in K-12 education. Liz was nominated by Catherine Miller, math education professor. Applications were reviewed by a committee representing the whole university. One reviewer wrote, “What I appreciate most about Ms. Mastalio’s teaching is her commitment to making sure that students who are at-risk can be successful learning math. 

    The award was presented at a luncheon on UNI’s campus on December 6. Both awardees showed a video of their teaching and spoke about the influence that UNI had on them as teachers and how teaching has impacted their lives.
