Senator Gary Winfield knows how important it is to show students that their community is invested in them. As part of the "Because You Matter" initiative, senator Winfield and a team of community stakeholders, including State Senator Toni Walker, greeted Davis Street students as they entered school. Students, families, bus drivers, and staff were greeted with cheers and high fives to start their day. It was a day we will never forget. Thank you to all!

Founded in 2004, the Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) is an award-winning project of the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, partnering with seven New Haven public schools.
The JCL recruits, trains, places, and supports volunteer reading partners in our local public schools, meeting one-to-one with children to share the pleasures of reading and conversation while enjoying learning in a relaxed, nurturing environment. Students benefit from the interaction with a caring adult, learning together.
Davis Street School is honored to celebrate with the many readers visiting Davis Street students to read with them weekly. The fun, knowledge, and attention they have showered our students with is immeasurable. We are grateful for the hard work and commitment of all the JCL readers.
Students in first grade wrote “All About” books about an animal of their choice. In art, based on what they knew about their animal, students created sculpture that represented their animal. This is first graders’ publishing celebration where they shared their work with friends and family. In addition to being an integrated project between art and literacy, this also was a project that included selected older students in the sixth grade to help with the art portion of the project.
