  • Davis Film Production Class nominated for a Student NATAS (EMMY) award.

    Posted by Jeff Rist on 5/25/2021

    We want to send a huge congratulations to the Davis Film Production 2 Class, also known as the DNN Class, this year for receiving a prestigious EMMY Award nomination for their weekly newscasts that are produced each week for school announcements.

    dnn news network

    So much hard work is put into each show and they are being recognized by the N.A.T.A.S, which is the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences - Northwest Chapter.

    They were nominated for this award as best High School Newscast in all of Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho and Montana! 

    Film Production instructor Jeff Rist says this is a proud moment for these students, overcoming so much this year, they all fought hard to not allow the situation they are in to determine the quality of the show.  These students would meet via Google Meet each week, plan a rundown, shoot video from home, create graphics, edit, and so much more.  The teamwork that goes into this show will be skills they carry for a lifetime. 

    Winners will be announced June 5th!  

    Be creative!  Be Passionate about the ARTS!  Congratulations DNN Class!

  • Superintendent Reykdal's Visit

    Posted by Megan Anderson Reilly on 4/22/2021

    On April 2, Washington Superintendent of Public Instruction, Chris Reykdal, visited my Spanish class at AC Davis High School to hear students’ perspectives and experiences regarding the pandemic and school.

    Superintendent Reykdal was impressed with the number of students, especially 9th and 10th graders, who had been working throughout the pandemic.  In addition, he was struck by the large number of students who identified as speaking Spanish at home and recognized our multilingual students as a huge asset for our school and community.  He heard students share the positive impact of flexible and understanding educators, coaches that motivate and encourage students not only in sports but also in academics, and the importance of being able to take meaningful classes. It was an honor to have Superintendent Reykdal in my classroom to be able to meet our amazing students.

    The fresh produce boxes contained 8-12 different types of produce from local and neighboring state farms. A special thanks to our local farmers; McIlrath Family Farms, Pacific Fresh Produce, and the Washington State Department of Agriculture. We also appreciate the staff support from Crafted Eatery & Single Hill for helping pack the boxes. Thank you for partnering together to provide nutritious local produce for our community!

The kits included coloring pages and mask making supplies. Students and/or parents can comment on any YSD #SafeCelebrations social media post with a picture of their coloring page or mask to be entered to win a prize!

  • A.C. Davis Assistant Principal Jewel Brumley Researches Murder Hornets

    Posted by Ashley LaRiviere on 11/17/2020

    A.C. Davis Assistant Principal, Jewel Brumley, has worked part-time for the USDA agricultural lab outside of Wapato for 23 years. She is part of the chemical ecology group that studies lure and kill systems for pest insects like moths, beetles, wasps, yellowjackets, and hornets.

    Most recently, Brumley has been using a lure made by the Wapato lab to capture murder hornets and trace them back to their nest. In the lab, she uses live murder hornets for pheromone work to make a lure that will bring them in great numbers. Working alongside Brumley is Jacqueline Serrano, the lead entomologist for the chemical ecology group. She is a great chemist and has done a lot of pheromone work with other insects.

    In her position as the biological technician, she works on bio-assays (quantitative procedures used to determine the relationship between the amount of an insecticide administered and the magnitude of response in a living organism), conducts insect experiments, ID's target insects, cares for colonies of insects, completes data work, and shoots some photography.
     
    "I love this position I got one summer 23 years ago as a teacher research associate. I stayed on and have worked with several insects; but wasps, yellowjackets, and hornets are my favorite. They are just incredible insects," said Brumley. 
     
    The science at the lab was an extension of her class when she was teaching. As a lifelong learner, it keeps her learning cutting edge science every year. "I have learned so much at the lab and have had several students get summer jobs here to help them decide if they want to go into scientific research as a career," added Brumley.
