Sparking a Passion for Learning!!!

The 21st Century program at Davis Elementary is happy to offer Ignite After-School! The Ignite program seeks to energize your child's passion for learning by engaging kids in fun STEM, art, physical education and leadership opportunities. We also seek to give your student the chance to practice social-emotional skills, team-building and autonomy in their education.

"Books can ignite fires in your mind, because they carry ideas for kindling, and art for matches."
