Spanish Students Win Awards at UCM Film Festival
In April of 2012, the University of Central Missouri held the 5th Annual Foreign Language Film Festival, which was attended by North Davies RIII Spanish teacher Kim Fish and her students. Spanish I students Jessica and Micah made a comedy film titled “La Biblioteca” or “The Library”, which took first prize in the level one comedy category. The Spanish II class, which included Suncirae, Ashley, Anna, Heather, and Rachel produced a drama titled “El Guapo Doctor” or “The Handsome Doctor”. Their entry won second prize in the level one drama category.
Breanna (not pictured) made a social justice film titled “Los Angeles de Juarez” or “The Angels of Juarez”, which was well received. When asked about the achievements of her students, Mrs. Fish said, “We did very well last year and I hope we do even better this year.” Mr. Hartley said of the achievements of the Spanish classes, “I was very pleased to receive a letter from the Warrensburg Film Festival. I know that Mrs. Fish and all our students worked really hard on their films. It was nice to see the students receive the recognition they deserved. It shows that even though we're small, we can do outstanding things" Last year, about 80 films were submitted and around 450 students and 20 schools participated. Congratulations to Mrs. Fish and all of her Spanish students for their hard work and awards.

|The first few weeks of the new school year are past and all the students and staff at North Daviess are getting down to routine. Reading tutoring and Math Club have started. We would like to encourage all students in grades K-6 who received an invitation to stay for these sessions, as the additional practice will really help them.|| |
Thank you for making your child's attendance a priority and for seeing that he or she arrives at school on time. It is also important that if your child misses school due to illness or other unforeseeable problems, that you call the school so that we can arrange for their makeup work. Please review the section of the Student Handbook that deals with attendance, especially what constitutes an excused absence. All our students have really started the year off right and we hope that their good behavior and hard work will continue. Thank you for your support.
