Enjoy your break – We’re back on January 12th, 2015!

Congrats to all on finishing first semester ! I have turned off Powerschool access while  teachers complete semester 1 grades and comments. We will mail out report cards on Saturday 12/20, and I will turn your PS access back on when we return for second semester.

Teachers will not be checking email during the winter holiday, so if you feel have a school-related emergency you may email me at

I hope you enjoy your holiday and come back well-rested on Monday January 12th at 9am!

Next week is Presentation of Learning week! Please help your child practice their POL this weekend and make sure to attend and watch their POL.

Remember that students are expected to attend school Monday-Thursday EITHER 8am-12pm OR 12pm-4pm. There will not be supervision available for them during the time they are not scheduled to be on campus.

Prep for Presentations of Learning has begun!

The students have started their in-class preparation for their Presentations of Learning! They all received the attached document and should  have shared it with you. In case you missed it, click here for a copy: DVS Fall 2014 POL Prep

They have 11 hours of time in class dedicated to preparing for a 12-minute preparation! If they chisel away at it one day at a time, it should be no problem!
