  • Davis Health Clinic

    Posted by Staci George on 11/5/2019

    Lots has happened at the Davis Health Clinic this year. We have expanded our hours from 2 half days last school year to 4 full days! Our medical care is currently being staffed by a handful of Community Health of Central Washington providers who are volunteering their days off to the clinic. It’s been amazing! Our full time ARNP starts mid-January, we are very excited to have her! We also have Behavioral Health here three half days a week and have had over 200 visits already. We ended last school year with just over 100 visits. Our collaboration with the school has improved tremendously and we continue to find ways to strengthen it. We have an established Community Advisory Board that offers tons of amazing support in addition to a wonderful outreach team! It’s been great to be part of a team that has come together to serve the students at AC Davis High School.

  • DECA "Blanket Drive"

    Posted by Jim Kindle on 10/29/2019

    The Davis Chapter of DECA took on the challenge of collecting blankets to donate to families and children at Camp Hope. This was the first community service/leadership endeavor that the Davis chapter has undertaken, and to top it all off, the chapter was competing against West Valley's DECA Chapter. The drive started on October 14th and culminated Thursday, October 24th at the Davis vs. West Valley football game. When our DECA members arrived at the football game, they were greeted by West Valley members, and quickly learned that our chapter was behind 115 blankets to West Valley's 199 (including pillows). As our Davis community always does, blankets came from every which direction from our families, community members, students, and teachers. By the time the event ended at the horn of the 1st quarter, our chapter had overcome the deficit we had. The DECA Chapter of Davis HS would like to thank all teachers, students, and families who donated blankets. Over 400 blankets and pillows will be taken to Camp Hope from both DECA chapters of Davis HS and West Valley HS, in hopes of making a difference. Blanket Drive The Pirate community always stands tall, and strives to make Yakima a better place for all.

  • DAVIS I.B. SENIOR ART SHOW AND ADVANCED STUDENTS ART EXHIBITION

    Posted by Carole Huls on 3/4/2019

    Davis IB Art Show Flyer

    The drawing and painting classes at Davis invite you to the 2019 IB Visual Arts and Senior Advanced Art Exhibition.  The opening will be March 11th from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm in the AC Davis High School KIVA.  IB Art students will be there with their work to talk to people about their individual themed exhibit. The exhibition will continue at 8:00 am - 4:00 pm through March 15th for parents, students, staff and community.  The show will display individual exhibitions from each of our IB Visual Arts students, as well as the advanced art students work that they have done while at Davis.  Viewers will see the visual results of imagination, effort, and perseverance by our Davis art students.  Unlocking the potential within each student, increasing imagination, as well as creative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills are in great demand in our world today.  Art classes are designed to increase these skills. 

    The IB Senior Art Exhibition is only one part of the IB Visual Arts program.  Each IB student will present their theme through their own original resolved artworks accompanied by exhibition texts and a written curatorial rationale that defends and articulates their purpose and intention for each piece that is to have global and cultural connections.  The themed work is based on student choice and executed from the skills, techniques, and knowledge they have gained from the program. The results have been amazing because most of the IB art students had VERY limited knowledge and experience with art, so beginning art also needed to be added to the already full program.   IB students are beginning artists with advanced art student’s tasks, demanding imagination and higher level creative and problem-solving thinking, so students have worked extremely hard to meet these standards.  The individual student exhibition is one portion of IB Visual Arts with a process portfolio, and a comparative study based on art history completing the program.

    The Senior Advanced Art Exhibit will be from the advanced drawing and painting class and will be artwork that students have created throughout their time in the art program through this year and previous years at Davis High School.  They have taken beginning art, as well as some students have continued in advanced art.  The artwork is a result of student choice, exploration and investigation in new techniques, media and personal findings through developing their creative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  Some art students have had work in fairs and competitive exhibits, as well as several, have sold or done commissioned work over the years and may go into a field of art.
