National Portfolio Day

Designers,
It’s time to show off what you’ve been doing for the past few years! National Portfolio Days are annual events typically held in multiple locations across the United States, Canada and Europe.
 
Visit with counselors, admissions team members, and faculty from art and design schools for a review of your portfolio before applying to colleges or universities.

Meet one on one with professional representatives of accredited colleges and universities and receive valuable feedback and guidance on your portfolio prior to submitting your application. No admission decisions or scholarship awards will be offered at National Portfolio Days. Some college and university representatives may accept your portfolio as the visual portion of your application. Others have restrictions that prohibit them from making a definitive portfolio decision at the time of your review.

If there is a particular school you are hoping to meet with, please visit that school’s website to learn more about the dates they will be available.

Sunday Nov 29th, 2022.

Staff Appreciation

 

 

Dear DVD Students, Parents, and Guardians,

 As we approach the season of Thanksgiving, we are all grateful for the tremendous work of our school staff – from our teachers to counselors to paraeducators to custodians to front office staff. To show our appreciation, we are organizing Thanksgiving baskets to deliver to our school staff on Thursday, November 17th. The idea is that each staff member will receive one basket containing treats and words of appreciation from students and parents/guardians.

 

Here is how you can contribute to the baskets of Thanksgiving:

  1. Items: If you are interested and able to purchase something to show your appreciation, please consider non-perishable items such as: individually wrapped : popcorn, gummies, trail mix, chips, hot chocolate, pretzels, candy, cookies, gift cards ($5) to target, Starbucks, coffee, sparkling water, tea, and any other non-perishable snacks. We need donated items collected by: Wednesday November 16th. All items can be left on the first-floor front office.

  1. Words of Appreciation: There is nothing that means more to school staff than words of appreciation or encouragement. Please consider handwriting a note of thanks or typing one digitally here: DVD Staff Appreciation Notes We will be printing these digital messages and including all words of appreciation in the baskets. Handwritten notes can be dropped off by Wednesday November 16th. 

With gratitude for your ongoing encouragement and support,

DVD Alumni Sibling Day

Hello Designers.

We are excited to host Alumni Sibling Day on Friday, November 18th from 9am – 3pm. 

We are looking for alumni siblings (or cousins) of our current students to spend the day on the DVD campus before we leave for Thanksgiving break. We understand that our alumni may be in school, working or both so hopefully they can stop by at some point throughout the day.

All alumni will need to check in at the reception desk on the first floor before heading up to the 4th floor.

If you have any questions about this event, please email Miss Pam at pbaker@davincischools.org

 

Thank you.
