Hello DVD families,

There are only two weeks left in the first semester! POLs begin next Thursday. The schedule for the week and POL grade level schedules are posted below. Please take a few minutes to read the following letter regarding POLs: POL info Letter for Families DVD Fall 2019

One way that we show appreciation for our teachers during POLs is keeping them fed and caffeinated. And we would love your help! If you would like to donate snacks, treats, and coffee to our teachers, please click on the following link to sign-up: Fall 2019 POL Snacks. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Winter Break SAT/ACT Prep Course

Da Vinci is once again offering a SAT/ACT Prep course to its students through PJ Test Prep, a small Test Prep and Tutoring company based in the south bay. They have been in business since 2005 and have been offering SAT/ACT prep with Da Vinci for 5 years and they do a great job!

The course, open to students from all DV high schools, will be 5 days over winter break from Monday January 6th to Friday January 10th, from 10:00am-12:30pm, with a practice test on Wednesday 1/8 from 10:00am-2:00pm. Students are expected to attend all 5 days. The course, normally valued at $500, costs only $100 per student.

After signing up at https://tinyurl.com/Winter2019TestPrep, students pay the $100 course fee to their school’s office to secure their spot. Please make checks out to “Da Vinci Schools” and write “ACT Test Prep” on the memo line.

These tests are critical for college entrance! This is a very wise investment of time and money!
