  • Davis Library Access Options

    Hi there, Davis Pirates and Davis Staff!

    The easiest way to get a paperback or hardback book from Davis Library shelves is to request the desired book by calling (573-2577) or by emailing parker.susanjean@ysd7.org or greene.lynne@ysd7.org

    Since many teen readers like to curl up in chairs, stretch out on floors, or snuggle up in their beds with a spell-binding book, Mrs. Greene or Mrs. Parker will also respond to questions about different “Genres” (mystery, romance, classic, teen fiction, Manga, science fiction, sports, biography, poetry, World War II, technology, art, science, religion, philosophy and psychology ... and on and on).

    After a book has been requested, Mrs. Greene or Mrs. Parker will make an appointment with the reader to put the book or books in a plastic bag and deliver items to the parking lot in front of the main entrance to Davis (7th and Walnut) between the hours of 9:00 AM to 3:45 PM.

    Because some people prefer reading on a device, Davis Library also provides electronic books (e-books) and on-line research (journals/magazines). These can be accessed from the Davis Library Home Page. Call Davis Library at 573-2507 for more details. (A list of links and passwords is in the attachment below.)

    To summarize, call us at 509-573-2577 or email parker.susanjean@ysd7.org or greene.lynne@ysd7.org for personal assistance.

    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.
