Thank you!

Thank you to all who helped make the Casino Royale Spring Dance a huge success! This event was made possible by assistance from the Da Vinci Design leadership students, the teachers and administrative staff who chaperoned the dance, and the parents who volunteered with set-up, clean-up and supervision. Special shout out to Joelle Earle at Earlez Grille Catering (3630 Crenshaw Blvd. 408-839-4918) for donating all of the drinks and cups for the dance. Thank you to Josh Caviness for taking all the photos and posting them to share at

Finally, this dance would not have been possible without the thoughtful planning of DVD parents Kristie Wakefield, Denise Colwell and Cynthia Jussen.
