  • New Zaepfel Scoreboard Has Received Permitting from the City of Yakima!

    With full funding from Gesa Credit Union, the Yakima community plus visitors to Zaepfel Stadium at 40th Ave and Tieton Drive will soon see a new scoreboard.

    The City of Yakima and the Yakima School District have been productively engaged in cooperative work to advance the installation of the new display.  The City of Yakima officially issued the permit to the Yakima School District today (2-7-20).

    The next steps include sign production by Daktronics and sign installation.  An installation schedule is not yet available but YSD is hopeful it can take place over the summer of 2020.

    The existing scoreboard, although renovated by Pepsi throughout the years, has been in place since 1969. The new sign is larger in size, more modern in presentation, and includes video playback.  The technology included with the new sign provides opportunities for classroom learning in video production for students at Davis and Eisenhower High Schools and Stanton Academy.

    Gesa Credit Union is covering 100% of the cost of the sign and the sign installation.

  • 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.
