Do you know a teacher who has made an impact in a student’s life? 

Perhaps it is a secretary who makes going to school a joy for you and your student. Or a bus driver whose interactions with your student supports social-emotional wellness? 

The Best of Davis Award celebrates the exceptional employees in the Davis School District. 

The program recognizes up to 40 district employees (15 elementary teachers, 15 secondary teachers and 10 support personnel) for the excellent work they are doing. Thanks to Chevron, Hogan & Associates Construction and the Davis Education Foundation, each receives a monetary award and small token of appreciation.  Deadline for nominations is March 1.

Community residents and employees are invited to nominate individuals they feel are the best of the best. Only full-time district employees are eligible for the award. Prior CARE or Best of Davis Award winners cannot be nominated. A list of prior winners is available here

All applications should be submitted on the approved nomination form, which can be filled out online at this link. Handwritten forms will NOT be considered.

Students share stories in Weber State Storytelling Festival

storytelling festival

Once upon a time, students in Davis School District began participating in the Weber State Storytelling Festival — 25 years ago to be exact.

Every year, elementary students work with a storytelling coach at their school, who helps them perfect the art of performing a folktale, personal narrative or humorous story in front of an audience.

Two or three students are chosen from each school to participate in the district competition, where a panel of judges grades the performer on their poise, voice expression, body language and ability to connect with the audience.

Good news on horizon
of pandemic

John Zurbuchen, Assistant Superintendent

February 2nd is Groundhog Day. This is the day that Punxsutawney Phil either sees his shadow or not and predicts the remainder of winter. It is also the name of a Bill Murray movie from 1993, "Groundhog Day."  His character is covering the festivities and gets caught in a daily repeat of the same day. He goes to bed and wakes up the next day to repeat the previous day.

We all now have a bit of a kinship to Murray’s character. The COVID pandemic sort of feels like Groundhog Day.  Each day we go to bed only to wake up to the continued impacts in our lives of the pandemic.  We’ve now been living this reality for a year. And, unfortunately, we seem to be having to live with it for the foreseeable future.  Murray’s movie was a comedy; ours is not.
