Principal's Message

Message from Mrs. Cindy Wills

August 2016

Dear Davenport Families,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child.  I look forward to an exciting school year filled with fun and learning.  The start of the school always generates great anticipation and enthusiasm! 

Davenport Elementary provides Early Childhood through Grade 1 students with learning experiences that foster academic, social, physical and emotional success for our district’s youngest learners.  Teachers, administrators and support staff work hard training our community of learners for the 21st Century by working toward our district mission statement, “Preparing students to excel and contribute to their community”.  We believe that we accomplish this by providing a nurturing, safe and caring environment.

Davenport develops the strong foundation of skills which enables our children to problem solve, work cooperatively with others, communicate their needs and learn to be a responsible student as they begin their educational journey.  Davenport teachers stay current in educational trends through a variety of professional development activities including conferences, graduate courses, in-district workshops, professional reading through book clubs/study groups and team collaboration/learning with Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).

Everyone at Davenport strongly believes that children are most successful when parents are involved in the child’s education.  Parents are always welcome in the school and can help contribute to the learning environment by volunteering in classrooms, working in the library and by joining the PTO.  We hope that through the combined efforts of home and school, your child will thirst for knowledge, skills and learning.  As a reminder, every Wednesday will be an early release so teachers are able to work with their teams as part of Genoa-Kingston school district Professional Learning Community culture.  This will be a 1:45 dismissal.

Please know that I am here for you and your child.  Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.  I am looking forward to working in partnership with you and your child.

With warmest regards,

Cindy Wills
