Thursday, Feb. 4, proved to be a day of celebrations for the Davis Academy. It was the 100th day of the school year, and the kindergartners invited their peers from across the street at Dunwoody Springs Elementary to join them for an educational carnival in the gym. The event included exercises for the mind and body and returned the hospitality Dunwoody Springs had offered in inviting Davis kindergartners to the Fulton County public school to talk about Chanukah in December. Joining the fun were members of Davis’ Mechina kindergarten prep program, costumed as elderly people.

That night, Davis’ A boys basketball team won the Division 1 Metro Atlanta Athletic Conference championship with a 40-38 overtime win against the Galloway School. The Lions ended the season 12-1 and joined the B boys and B girls basketball teams as division champions.
