Words From Head of School Pete Moore

Dear Patriot Community,

We are in the home stretch of this incredible school year. To extend our sincere appreciation for the community pulling together to make it possible for Davidson Day students to learn on campus for all but three weeks, we prepared a short ‘celebration’ video for you.
By the end of the school year, we will have enjoyed approximately 145 days (91% of the school year) with all divisions on campus, for which we are all deeply thankful. 

Producing this video brought home to the administrative team just how remarkable and significant it has been for us to teach, coach, encourage, and counsel your children in person for so much of this year; and to make any virtual teaching as engaging as possible for students who were learning from home.
This year has also highlighted how powerful and vital it is for your children to learn in person.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, all of our teachers at Davidson Day. Their dedication to our students, your children, has been one of the primary keys to our success this year. I am tremendously grateful for all they have done.
