Week 33 Update – Teacher Appreciation Week

Designers, can you believe it’s already May!? We have less than 6 weeks remaining in our 2016-2017 school year.

Teacher Appreciation Week

This week (May 1-5) is Teacher Appreciation Week! Many of you may have already written a thoughtful note (or a few!) for your teachers in advisory.  If not, we encourage you to do so this week.  Your notes of appreciation mean so much to our staff who care so much and work so hard to support students in their ongoing growth and success.

Parents, would you like a way to show your gratitude for staff but aren’t sure how? You can always drop off a note of appreciation, or you can donate Breakfast Items for our staff throughout the week in our front office!   If you are interested, please sign up at the link below…

DVD + KidWiseMan Mural Event Today! All are welcome from 1:30-3:00 to join!

Today, KidWiseman, renown Los Angeles Street Artist, will be painting a mural with our students, designed entirely by our DVD seniors! The mural will be located on the first 80 feet of the Da Vinci Design School parking lot.

Painting will begin at 10:30AM and will continue until around 3:00PM. While students get off of school at 1:30, we encourage any other students and/or family members of any age to stop by and spend some time painting with the students until the completion of the mural around 3:00PM.

We know that our seniors are incredibly proud of the work they are doing and the mural they are leaving to inspire the younger generations of Da Vinci students as DVIA moves to the campus in just over a years time! Pizza and water will be provided for all who attend.

Here is an image of the design that will be executed by the students (they had still been working on the final colors which you can now see if you come by!):

We hope to see you there this afternoon Friday, April 7th, from 1:30-3:00PM to celebrate the amazing work created by students and to participate yourself.
