Donations for POL Week

Families – this year for POLs, we are asking for parent donations for snacks and/or breakfast items for teachers and staff. This energizes teachers throughout a long week of POLs! Link to the Sign Up Genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0549a8a82faafa7-breakfast

Da Vinci Designers Explore Their Personal Passions Through Digital Media Projects

Da Vinci Design seniors are cultivating their personal interests and passions into a marketable brand for their first semester exhibition project, Innovating Success.

The questions driving this real-world project are “What am I passionate about and how can I use media to share my passions with others?”

Our Designers have a wide variety of personal interests and passions, ranging from animation to car design to Latinx culture and teaching. Students are interviewing outside experts in the their field of interest, taking photos and video for inspiration, and creating final digital media deliverables such as a blog, podcast, or vlog that can be shared across multiple social media platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. > READ MORE 

You can see this project, and those from other grade levels at Exhibition this Wednesday!
