Physical Fitness Testing Next Week (9th grade)

Hi 9th grade families,

The California Department of Education requires that all 9th grade students complete a Physical Fitness Test. This test consists of a one-mile run, push-ups, curl-ups, shoulder stretch, and a trunk lift. Whether or not a student passes the test does not affect graduation at Da Vinci Science, but it is important that every student takes the test. If a student needs an exemption from the test for a medical reason or other reason, please contact Erin D’Souza at edsouza@davincischools.org.

The Physical Fitness Test is scheduled during the afternoons of SLC week (Monday, 2/27 – Thursday, 3/2). Students can choose which day they’d like to complete this test. They should not schedule their SLC and their Physical Fitness Test on the same day. Students should bring a change of clothes to school on the day they sign up to take the test. Students are required to attend their classes in accordance with the dress code, and they will be given time to change their clothes after school.

The link for sign-ups is here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084ca4a72ea13-physical

Here is the calendar for the 2017-2018 school year, approved by the DV School board on Monday night. We will be starting school on August 22nd, a week later than usual, just to give ourselves an extra cushion in case the are any delays in construction, furniture delivery, etc. (Note that we have not yet decided on dates for key events like Back-to-School Night, Exhibition, etc., so don’t worry that those things are not listed.)
I hope this helps you as you make your family’s summer plans! :)
