Enjoy Your Summer!
To Our Davenport Community Schools Families,
The 2017-2018 school year is done. Our seniors have graduated, awards assemblies and other celebrations have been held, and our teachers are packing up their classroom materials.
Still, learning can and should continue over the summer months. Our communities have many wonderful resources that offer fun learning activities. We have a strong public library system that offers not only books, but also movies, music, and activities. We have access to a number of museums, live music concerts, and public pools, along with wonderful parks and bike paths.
There’s so much to do at home. Learn to cook your favorite food (or bake your favorite cookies), plant something – vegetables, flowers- take care of your plants and watch them grow, go for a walk in your neighborhood and really look at the world around you. Write, draw, paint, learn to sew – make something beautiful and useful. Take some time to volunteer to help others. We have food pantries, animal shelters, churches, and others who would be glad of your time.
Finally, I hope you allow time to “do nothing”. Rest, relax, dream, and imagine so you can return to school with a sense of excitement and full of energy for the new school year.
Dr. Art Tate, Superintendent
