MAY PTA MEETING

Get to know your PTA officers and DHS representatives.  Learn what is happening at the school.  Join us for our May PTA meeting on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 pm in the DHS library.  Hope to see you there. 

See what our Junior Race and Social Justice students have been doing.

The 7th Annual RSJ Research Symposium will be held on Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 from 5:00-7:30 p.m. in the Davis Senior High South Gym (315 W. 14th Street).  Students across 9 sections of Race and Social Justice in U.S. History (an 11th grade history course) will be presenting their yearlong research.  Students were asked to identify a problem or issue in the United States.  Then, they researched the extent to which these problems exist in the Davis community.  Finally, they proposed feasible solutions to help alleviate the problem in Davis.  5:00-7:00 p.m. will be an open house; guests are welcome to peruse the 45 research projects and ask students questions.  7:00-7:30 will consist of formal, in-depth presentation and discussion by one research group.

Please stop by and share in the amazing research done by our 11th grade classes.
