Calling all Da Vinci Design Alumni!
The annual DVD alumni gathering will be taking place this Saturday 1/2 from 12:00-3:00 for any Da Vinci Design alumni at the back of campus. Free tacos for lunch will be provided.
We look forward to seeing you awesome alumni there!
Please be on the lookout for mailed report cards this week and please review the following images for more information about next semester.
We hope you have an amazing holiday break with your families and friends! Thank you for all of your support this semester.
Designers – Congratulations on finishing Semester 1 POLs!
This post is a friendly reminder that tomorrow is the last day of semester 1! We are running a normal school day from 9:00-3:55. You will see each of your classes plus advisory and CD at the end of the day.
There is no school on Friday 12/18 as it is a staff development day for teachers.
Report cards will be sent out Saturday 12/19; please allow at least 2-3 business days for delivery.
If you are applying to a college/university via the Common Application, you must “match” or “bridge” your Common Application account to your Naviance Family Connection account. This was demonstrated in your College Writing class, but if you need a refresher, click play for a video tutorial: https://vimeo.com/102639828
See your College Counselor before the winter break with any questions!
LA Unified has just announced that they are closed today following a bomb threat made toward one of their board members. (Story:http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-all-lausd-schools-closed-threat-20151215-story.html )
Because there has been no threat made to DV or Wiseburn, we will hold school today as we normally do unless directed to do otherwise. We will keep you posted.
Designers – can you believe next week is the last week of first semester? Congratulations on your first week of POLs being complete; only 3 more POL days to go!
Next Thursday is the last day of Semester 1 and we will be running a normal 9-3:55 schedule. No class on Friday 12/18. Report cards will be sent out Saturday 12/19.

If not, you MUST do this in order for your application to be complete and for you to be considered for admission in Fall 2016 even if you have included them on your application. The scores you reported are not “official” unless they come from the testing agency (collegeboard.org for SAT or actstudent.org for ACT). This goes for public and private colleges. Please follow the instructions below:
