Take The District LCAP Survey

Take the 2018 LCAP Survey

We need your feedback! 
DJUSD is asking for parent/guardian and staff feedback that will help with our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP helps the district connect the funding we receive with the goals we have established, and parent/guardian input, as well as staff input, plays a critical role in identifying these goals. There are separate 10 minute surveys for staff members, parents of elementary students, parents of middle school students, and parents of high school students. If you have children in multiple levels please take each survey that applies. 
Thank you so much for your time and feedback. It is greatly appreciated!

Counselor’s Corner, Melinda Coates


It was so great to see all the wonderful acts of kindness this month done by all of our Patwin Hawks! Here’s a little more about why it’s so important to teach kindness to our students.


6 Reasons Why Teaching Kindness is Important


1. Happy Children

There is a natural good feeling that results when we do an act of kindness. These good feelings are proven to be contagious, encouraging even more kind behavior (also known as altruism).


2. Greater Sense of Belonging and Improved Self-Esteem

Studies show that people experience a "helper's high" when they do a kind act. This rush of endorphins creates a lasting sense of pride, well-being, and an enriched sense of belonging.


3. Increased Peer Acceptance

Research on prosocial behavior among adolescents determined that being kind increases our ability to form meaningful connections with other people and greater peer acceptance was achieved through acts of kindness. 


4. Improved Health and Less Stress

There are a number of physical and mental health benefits that can be achieved by being kind. Altruistic actions trigger a release of the hormone oxytocin, which can significantly increase a person's level of happiness and reduce stress levels.


5. Better Concentration and Improved Results

Kindness is a key ingredient that enhances positivity and helps children feel good about themselves as it increases serotonin levels. This important chemical affects learning, memory, mood, sleep, health, and digestion. Children with a positive outlook have greater attention spans, more willingness to learn, and better creative thinking to improve results at school.


6. Less Bullying

When students are taught how to change their thoughts and actions by learning about kindness and compassion, it fosters the positive behavior that's expected and naturally rewarded with friendship. Promoting kindness and empathy is key in reducing bullying to create warm and inclusive school environments.

Great Kindness Challenge Month ~ Patwin Hawks ~


February is Kindness Month at Patwin Elementary!


The Great Kindness Challenge is our focus for the month of February.  Students and staff will be dedicated to performing hundreds of acts of kindness at Patwin Elementary.  Using the provided checklist of 50 kind acts, students accept the challenge and show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS!


The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positive bullying prevention initiative that improves school climate and increases student engagement.

The Great Kindness Challenge-School Edition was created by Kids for Peace in 2012 when approached by a local school to help create a more positive school climate and prevent bullying. This is Patwin’s 2nd year of focusing on Kindness in the month of February.  On February 21st have your student wear purple because we will be taking a whole school photo on our blacktop once again.  It will be a surprise to everyone as to what we will be creating this year!

January's Community Cart - Enjoying food from Korea

Patwin students had their third celebration of cultures through a “community cart”.  The month of January featured food and drink from Korea.  Parents and children together enjoyed tea and a variety of
food that was warm and delicious.  A great way to build community and start the day.

A Touch of Understanding for 4th graders

A Touch of Understanding (ATOU) provides disability awareness programs designed to educate a new generation to understand the challenges associated with disabilities and to accept and respect all individuals. Patwin 4th graders were able to  pariticpate in this disability awareness program.  They were able to use wheelchairs and mobility canes, write in Braille, handle braces and artificial limbs, participate in a mirror-writing activity to understand the frustration of a learning disability, and listen to a CD replicating how a child with autism may hear certain noises. Our students also met with our volunteers who have disabilities, who share their insight and experiences with humor and honesty.

School Board “We All Belong” Resolution - Implementation Begins


This month, the Davis School Board approved a resolution providing a clear and transparent statement that DJUSD shall be a place where all students, employees and families feel welcome and safe regardless of their immigration status, race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression. Specifically, the resolution addresses procedures for responding to federal immigration enforcement action as well as policy changes around data collection on student enrollment. For more information visit www.djusd.net/Belong or click on We All Belong Resolution. The resolution marked an important, first step to begin the process of examining current policies and procedures, educating school employees, and working closely with community partners to ensure that all students and families, including those that are undocumented or marginalized, are able to receive education in a safe and supportive environment.
