News, Events, and Announcements
A new offering from the Davenport Schools Foundation scholarship program this year will be the West High Music Scholarship, a $1000 award to be presented next spring to a senior who has participated in music programs all four years of high school.
This scholarship is being made possible by a gift from Mr. John Wiese of Davenport. His late wife, Hanae Fujiwara Wiese, was a music teacher in Davenport Schools for many years. She passed away in 2004. He and his family are providing this funding as a tribute to Hanae and her students.
Ms. Price has been selected as the Intermediate and High School Math Coach for DCSD. Sorry to lose you, but happy for your success.
