Have a Terrific Summer!

Thank you for another terrific year, DVS families!

Report cards were printed and mailed out today, so look for them to be arriving on Friday or Saturday.

Over summer our teachers will not be checking their school email accounts, but if you have any questions you are welcome to call the school office or email me at

For those taking algebra or geometry in summer school, classes begin on Monday June 15th. Geometry runs from 8:00am to 11:30am, and algebra 1 runs from 12:20pm to 4:00pm.

We look forward to welcoming the students back for the 2015-2016 school year on Tuesday August 18th!

Graduation Details for Senior Families

Hi Senior Families!

For Wednesday, 6/3: All graduating seniors are required to attend the graduation practice in the forum at 9:00am tomorrow morning. Seniors will remain on campus until 11:30am, and they will be dismissed at that time.

For Thursday, 6/4: The graduation ceremony will begin at 5:30pm at the El Segundo Performing Arts Center, which is on the campus of El Segundo High School. (The entrance is off Main Street, across from the big park). Seniors are expected to arrive at the Performing Arts Center between 4:00 and 4:30pm. It is fine if seniors choose not to attend school Thursday morning, but of course they are welcome to!

Regarding graduation tickets: Finally, and unfortunately, we do not have any extra tickets to give to families who requested more than 6. Students are welcome to ask each other if they have extras they are not using, but we will not be giving any extras out from our office.

Thank you!

Final Teacher Appreciation Potluck

Hi DVS Families!

If you enjoy reading the comments on your student’s report card and want to say thank you to the teachers for taking the time to write such thoughtful remarks, then there’s no better way to show your appreciation than bringing them food!

We have organized one final teacher appreciation potluck on the day when the teachers are finishing grades and comments, which is Monday, June 8th. If you’d like to contribute something, please sign up here:

Thank you in advance!
