  • Athletics and Extracurricular Activities

    In addition to strong academic programs, the Davenport Community Schools features an amazing array of extracurricular activities designed to help students build skills, relationships and positive self esteem. Offered at every level and in all of our buildings, these activities range from intramural and organized conference sports to a variety of special interest clubs and outlets for creative expression. Organized, monitored and supervised by trained staff and volunteers – along with plenty of student input – these various programs create increased opportunities for students to learn about themselves and the world around them. Many also provide volunteer and community service opportunities. More information on a number of these activities can be found on our individual school websites or by calling the schools directly, or by following DCSD Athletics on Twitter at @dcsdsports or on Facebook by liking Davenport Community Schools Athletics.

     

    Backpacks/Bags at DCSD Events

    In an effort to provide the safest environment possible for our student-athletes and fans, backpacks and bags will no longer be permitted at DCSD events.  Effective August 1, 2016, non-athletes in attendance at our events will no longer be allowed to bring backpacks, book bags, duffle bags, string bags, or oversize purses into our venues.  This expectation is in line with several other schools in the Mississippi Athletic Conference, along with most institutions/teams at the collegiate and professional level.
