Davis Bay Elementary campus houses two distinct school programs: our mainstream classrooms, fondly referred to as our DEN classes, and the Nature Education for Sustainable Todays and Tomorrows (NEST). Together these programs enjoy the learning environment that is the Davis Bay Elementary School campus and its beautiful natural surroundings. Due to our rich natural surroundings, it is not surprising to learn that Davis Bay Elementary has environmental education and related science learning opportunities at the centre of our programming and learning.
At Davis Bay we value the participation of parents as part of our learning community inside and outside the classroom, on field trips, and as part of the Community Reader Program. We have an active Parent Advisory Council and Community program that supports our school through Breakfast for Kids, Roots of Empathy, leadership clubs, movie & games night, and various fundraising activities. We encourage active community involvement with our parents and neighbours many of whom are part of our Growing Green and Greenhouse committee - we value parent, student and community input and we are a happening place!
There are many ways to keep up with what is happening at Davis Bay Elementary - check out the various links. If you cannot find what you are looking for please contact the school directly at 604-885-9523.
