Winter Break Begins Tomorrow!

Greetings DVD Community!

We would like to acknowledge all our families and staff members that have worked so hard to keep our students engaged in their learning throughout this semester. We appreciate you all and hope you take some time to rest and enjoy the holidays!

Report cards will be mailed to your home next week and our second semester is set to start on Monday, January 11th.

Take care,

Veronica & Russell

UCLA Riordan Saturday Business Institute

Calling all DVD 9th and 10th grade students!

The UCLA Saturday Business Institute program provides students with college and business exposure.  Many of our Designers have participated in the past and this is a great way to learn more about the college application process before Senior year as well as developing essential skills in leadership.  The UCLA Saturday Business Institute will meet 4 Saturdays during the Spring semester.  This year the program will be offered virtually only in webinar style.
