DJUSD Schools Open as Regularly Scheduled- Police Have Lifted Shelter In Place Order Friday, January 11

 

In the early hours of this morning, Davis Police located the suspected gunman deceased with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the Downtown Davis area. Police have lifted the shelter in place order and given the all clear for schools to open as regular scheduled.

 

Schools that were closed temporarily last night for security are open today and all classes and activities are taking place as scheduled.  As a school community we are deeply saddened by the report that Davis Police Department Officer Natalie Corona died last night after sustaining fatal gunshot wounds. We send our heartfelt condolences to her family and to fellow police officers.  We also extend our sincere gratitude to all public safety personnel for their bravery and commitment to keeping our children, our schools and our community safe each day.

Dear Parent/Guardian of 9th grade students,

 

On October 10, 2018, 9th grade students in DJUSD took the PSAT during their periods 1-4. PSAT scores were expected to be released this week online. Students will receive access to their hardcopy paper scores, online access code, and other relevant information pertaining to their PSAT and College Board from me when I visit classrooms after we return from our winter break. As with any assessment, it is important for our students to understand and interpret the meaning behind the scores and next step opportunities. I thank you in advance for your patience in awaiting your child’s scores.

Update for all 8th graders interested in playing 8th grade basketball 

 

8th grade Boys and Girls basketball OFFICIALLY starts on January 7th.  We realize that this is a late start to the season, but due to the lack of facilities until the Holmes gym is complete, we need to be flexible with our practices.  There will be some optional winter break practices which will be announced later as soon as we have all the details.  In the meantime, please make sure that all your online paperwork is submitted and you have turned in a current physical form signed by your physician.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions and keep checking your email for updates and make sure to let your coach know you are interested in playing so they can add you to their lists.

On This Day in History: 1968 Apollo 8 departs for moon’s orbit

Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, is successfully launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, with astronauts Frank Borman, James Lovell, Jr., and William Anders aboard. On Christmas Eve, the astronauts entered into orbit around the moon, the first manned spacecraft ever to do so. During Apollo 8‘s 10 lunar orbits, television images were sent back home, and spectacular photos were taken of Earth and the moon from the spacecraft. In addition to being the first human beings to view firsthand their home world in its entirety, the three astronauts were also the first to see the dark side of the moon.

Update for all 8th graders interested in playing 8th grade basketball 

 

8th grade Boys and Girls basketball OFFICIALLY starts on January 7th.  We realize that this is a late start to the season, but due to the lack of facilities until the Holmes gym is complete, we need to be flexible with our practices.  There will be some optional winter break practices which will be announced later as soon as we have all the details.  In the meantime, please make sure that all your online paperwork is submitted and you have turned in a current physical form signed by your physician.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions and keep checking your email for updates and make sure to let your coach know you are interested in playing so they can add you to their lists.

Dear Parent/Guardian of 9th grade students,

 

On October 10, 2018, 9th grade students in DJUSD took the PSAT during their periods 1-4. PSAT scores were expected to be released this week online. Students will receive access to their hardcopy paper scores, online access code, and other relevant information pertaining to their PSAT and College Board from me when I visit classrooms after we return from our winter break. As with any assessment, it is important for our students to understand and interpret the meaning behind the scores and next step opportunities. I thank you in advance for your patience in awaiting your child’s scores.

 

Kind regards,

Adrianne Simon-Carlson

9th Grade Counselor

Dear Parents of 8th Grade Students,

 

This year, Harper Junior High School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on March 7, 2019. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the US Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

 

Your child may take an assessment in reading, mathematics, or science. You will receive a letter in the mail if your child has been randomly selected. The assessment will take about 120 minutes for most students, including transition time and directions. The information collected is used for statistical purposes only:

  • Your child’s grades will not be affected.
  • Students may be excused for any reason, are not required to complete the assessment, and may skip any question.
  • While the assessment is voluntary, NAEP depends on student participation to help policymakers improve educations.

 

Thank you for your support. Please feel free to contact Adrianne Simon-Carlson at asimon@djusd.net if your child has been selected and you have questions.

On This Day in History: 1865 - Slavery abolished in America.

U.S. Secretary of State William Seward issued a statement verifying the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Dear Parent/Guardian of 9th grade students,

 

On October 10, 2018, 9th grade students in DJUSD took the PSAT during their periods 1-4. PSAT scores were expected to be released this week online. Students will receive access to their hardcopy paper scores, online access code, and other relevant information pertaining to their PSAT and College Board from me when I visit classrooms after we return from our winter break. As with any assessment, it is important for our students to understand and interpret the meaning behind the scores and next step opportunities. I thank you in advance for your patience in awaiting your child’s scores.

 

Kind regards,

Adrianne Simon-Carlson

9th Grade Counselor

 

 

Yearbooks: Have you purchased your yearbook yet? Be sure to purchase before early pricing ends at the end of December. Cost right now is only $35, or a discounted price of $34 if you have an ASB card. The cost will go up to $40 when we return from break. You can buy your yearbook online through the Harper Webstore, or by cash or check at the Front Office.

 

Tree Harper thanks you for making good on your pledge by bringing any Fund Razor III donations to the front office. Our new total for pledges is $420. We’ve received $150 in actual donations so far. Happy Holidays!

 

 

Dear Parents of 8th Grade Students,

 

This year, Harper Junior High School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on March 7, 2019. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the US Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

 

Your child may take an assessment in reading, mathematics, or science. You will receive a letter in the mail if your child has been randomly selected. The assessment will take about 120 minutes for most students, including transition time and directions. The information collected is used for statistical purposes only:

  • Your child’s grades will not be affected.
  • Students may be excused for any reason, are not required to complete the assessment, and may skip any question.
  • While the assessment is voluntary, NAEP depends on student participation to help policymakers improve educations.

 

Thank you for your support. Please feel free to contact Adrianne Simon-Carlson at asimon@djusd.net if your child has been selected and you have questions.

The 2018 Adopt A Family Program-Update

 

   Thank you so much to the many of you who have offered to “adopt” a Harper family or child during this holiday season.   At this point the only thing left that we could still use to help these efforts would be gift cards to local grocery stores or Target.  Please bring them to the office, labeled “Adopt A Family”, with your names on them,  so we know who to thank.  Each card will go to our identified students in need.  All donations need to be in the office between Monday, the 17th and Wednesday, December 19th.

Yearbooks: Have you purchased your yearbook yet? Be sure to purchase before early pricing ends at the end of December. Cost right now is only $35, or a discounted price of $34 if you have an ASB card. The cost will go up to $40 when we return from break. You can buy your yearbook online through the Harper webstore, or by cash or check at the Front Office.

Send all donations to Harper’s front office – checks made out to Tree Harper and cash placed in a labeled envelope. With this amount, Tree Harper will be able to buy 3 or 4 trees! With an overwhelming victory, the winning beard style is… drum roll please… the Question Mark Beard! Mr. McKim will wear it during all school hours on Tuesday 12/4/18. Pictures will be taken for the yearbook. While it is too late to affect the beard contest results, Tree Harper welcomes any donations at any time. Once again, Tree Harper thanks you! Donations can be paid through the Harper Online Student Store, click HERE

 

 

Dear Parents of 8th Grade Students,

 

This year, Harper Junior High School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on March 7, 2019. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the US Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

 

Your child may take an assessment in reading, mathematics, or science. You will receive a letter in the mail if your child has been randomly selected. The assessment will take about 120 minutes for most students, including transition time and directions. The information collected is used for statistical purposes only:

  • Your child’s grades will not be affected.
  • Students may be excused for any reason, are not required to complete the assessment, and may skip any question.
  • While the assessment is voluntary, NAEP depends on student participation to help policymakers improve educations.

 

Thank you for your support. Please feel free to contact Adrianne Simon-Carlson at asimon@djusd.net if your child has been selected and you have questions.

The 2018 Adopt A Family Program-Update

 

   Thank you so much to the many of you who have offered to “adopt” a Harper family or child during this holiday season.   At this point the only thing left that we could still use to help these efforts would be gift cards to local grocery stores or Target.  Please bring them to the office, labeled “Adopt A Family”, with your names on them,  so we know who to thank.  Each card will go to our identified students in need.  All donations need to be in the office between Monday, the 17th and Wednesday, December 19th. 

 

    Sincerely, Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez

Thought for Today:  Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized. ~ Albert Einstein

 

On This Day in History: 1942 Pearl Harbor was bombed in a surprise attack.

At 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II.

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  1. Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)
  3. Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)

Due to to worsening air quality, and out of an abundance of caution, Davis Joint Unified School District, along with all other school districts in Yolo County, is closing all schools and offices on Friday, November 16. 

Over the last few days, DJUSD has been regularly monitoring worsening the air quality and conferring with the Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District. The decision to close schools due to air quality is not taken lightly and is unprecedented. Our top priority is the health and safety of our students and staff. 

We anticipate the conditions to improve significantly over the next week and look forward to a return to normal school routines, outdoor activities and athletics after Thanksgiving Break. Any updates over Thanksgiving Break will be shared as quickly as possible with our school community by email and available here on the DJUSD website as well as on DJUSD Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for your partnership and understanding.

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  1. Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)
  3. Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  4. Collect food or household items to be donated to a local family or the local food bank. (These items could be organized into a gift basket to be given to a family.)
  5. Donate a gift card from Save Mart, Target, Safeway or Walmart, or? 

 

 

If you choose to participate, items will need to be brought to Harper between Nov. 26, 2018 – Dec. 10, 2018.   Please bring gifts wrapped and labeled.   Our goal is to collect all contributions and deliver them by Friday, December 14, 2018.

 

If you elect to “Adopt- a Family,” will provide you with a description of the family, without naming names, and a list of suggestions.  Please email Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez to let us know that you are interested. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!
