Davidsen Music Department Shines at County and State Levels

The Music Department at Davidsen Middle School – Center for the Arts is starting off the new year with some exciting events!

Some of our band, chorus, and orchestra students are representing the school in the All-State and All-County Honor Groups. These students are performing with some of the strongest musicians from Hillsborough County and the entire state of Florida. They have worked so hard to be selected for these honor groups and we couldn’t be prouder of them.

Congratulations to these incredibly talented musicians: Gianni Spitale (trombone) was invited to play with the All-County Band and All-State Honor Band. Yasmine Bouanani, (soprano) will sing with the All-State Middle School Mixed Choir. Amiya Gary, Erika Hernandez, Natalia Milanes, Tommie Mallard, Noah Perez, Libby Bauder, Yasmine Bouanani, Julianna Vasquez, and Kyndall Williams will share their talents with the All-County Chorus. And Allison Naughton (violin) will perform with the All-State Honors Orchestra.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be on sale Feb. 16 for $10 a box. Proceeds will benefit Eighth Grade events.

The Spring Box Tops for Education Drive will conclude Feb. 16. This national program, sponsored by General Mills, supports education by donating 10 cents back to schools for every box top redeemed. Last year, Davidsen Middle School raised over $900 to support programs, events and capital improvements. Our goal this year is to surpass $1,000. Please take the time to clip Box Tops and don’t forget to look for eBoxTops and Bonus Box Tops. Ask your neighbors and relatives to collect for us too! Send all of your Box Tops to school in a plastic bag or attach them to a collection sheet and label them with your child’s name and homeroom teacher’s name. Questions? Contact
Don’t bother cooking lunch or dinner on Feb. 21! Instead, join us for DMS Spirit Day at Burger 21 in West Park Village. A portion of sales will be donated back to our school all day.

The walls of our cafeteria have been painted with faux bricks by our art teacher, Mr. Heath. Personalize a brick to honor a student, teacher or staff member. Bricks are $10 each. For more information, contact
Thanks to Ms. Supple, our Media Center Director, for hosting the fourth annual Davidsen Middle School Cookie Exchange in the Media Center. Participants were invited to submit their favorite cookie recipes, which were bound into a take-home recipe book. They also got to share their sweet treats at an after-school event on Dec. 18.

Many thanks to the sponsors and volunteers who made the annual “Dragon Blast” another overwhelming success. Our students had a great day and it wouldn’t be possible without your continued support.
