PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Dear Daves Avenue Families, 

It’s been a great week for Cool Cats! Yesterday, all 5th grade students met virtually with RJ Fisher Middle School Administration to hear about their transition to middle school. Congratulations to Maddison Desmet, Xander VonMatt, Vibhish Chakravarthy, and Minou Moghaddam for being selected to earn Fisher swag! Here is a sneak peak of a few of our captive audience members:
Last night we welcomed Hagerman the Science Wizard for a virtual Science Assembly. Over 75 Cool Cats were in attendance! Thank you to our amazing Home & School Club and Science Fair Committee for making this possible. Our 2021 “Science Fairies” include Mrs. Catherine Yang, Mrs. Weiwei Gu, Mrs. Lan Jiang, and Mrs. Wen Li. Their planning and support to make our Science Fair a reality this year has been simply phenomenal! Thank you for your efforts! 4th Grade student, Nolan Salas, shared with me his science show representation from last night! Way to go, Nolan!
Today is the last day to register for our 2021 Science Fair. I hope all of our Cool Cats take advantage of this opportunity.

Have a PAWSitively awesome week!
Kind regards, 
Jenna Mittleman, Principal

YEARBOOK PHOTOS NEEDED!
Attention all Cool Cats 
We are collecting photos for this year's yearbook and we need your help!
Each week, we will be asking for different photos.
This Week:
We would like a headshot of your Cool Cat smiling, laughing, or talking...preferably from the shoulders up with a light background.

Please send photos to yearbook@davesavehsc.org.*
*Include your child's name, grade, and teacher in your email.
In this unique year, the H&SC has decided to purchase yearbooks for ALL students.
Note: Parents will have the ability to customize 2 pages of their child's yearbook for free this year. We will need to share parent contact information with our yearbook provider TreeRing in order to give parents access to their child's account. If you do not want us to share your information with TreeRing, please email Amy Garza at agarza@lgusd.org and we will remove you from the list.
