Our motto at Davin for the 2017-2018 school year is, "Always try to be a little kinder than is necessary." Senior students have been challenged to read a book called "Wonder," written by R.J. Palacio, while the younger students have been given a picture book option called "We're All Wonders," also by R.J. Palacio. When students finish reading the book, they get to put their name into a draw. At each assembly, we will draw names and hand out some prizes.
School photos will be taken on Tuesday and Wednesday in the school's gymnasium. Our Purple Kindergarten class will have their photos taken on Tuesday, September 26th. Our Green Kindergarten class and the rest of our students (Grades 1 to 8), will have their photos taken on Wednesday, September 27th. Individual and class photos will be taken.
If you have any questions, please contact the main office @ 306-791-8574.

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’s account of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
