Welcome to R.L. Davis Elementary School, home of the Dolphins.  At DES we pride ourselves in maintaining high expectations for student achievement while focusing on the individual needs of each student.  Davis is one of seven elementary schools in the Bryant School District. Our school has approximately 590 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Our school has an outstanding reputation for providing a variety of educational opportunities.

The staff’s commitment to excellence is one of the reasons why Davis Elementary enjoys such a great reputation. You will find your child’s teacher is your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive partnership with them throughout this school year.

Home-school communication is a key factor to achieving success.  This website will serve as a general guide to all parents and students at Davis Elementary.  I believe you will find it a valuable resource.  You will find general information about the school including school calendars, school news, and important upcoming events.  There is also an abundance of information about the DES PTO, including ways that you can become involved in our school.  I know you will find that working together leads to the highest quality educational program for your child.  We also have a strong Watch D.O.G.S. program and I encourage our dads, granddads, uncles, and other positive male role models to get involved at the school.  If you are interested in volunteering — we can find a way to make it work with your schedule and talents! 

We can fulfill our school’s mission when we work together.  Let’s continue to make Davis Elementary a place of educational excellence where all children can achieve!  I look forward to working with you as partners in educating your children. I am honored to be your Principal at Davis Elementary and I look forward to an exciting year!

Michele Lewis,

DES Principal
