Week 12 Preview

Greetings Designers and Design Families,

So many exciting things to look forward to in the next week! DVD’s annual costume contest in honor of Halloween, a whole week full of spirit, our second Coffee with Admin Zoom session for parents/guardians, and our first school dance of the school year!

A big shout out goes to our 10th grade students and teachers today for the amazing cardboard boat races that happened today! It was SO much fun to watch students find out if their boats would sink or swim. Thank you to our friends at the El Segundo Aquatics Center for all of your help and coordination with this activity! We can’t wait to share all of the fun and photos from this exciting event during Exhibition Night on November 15th!
