Report cards are on their way!

We’ve just finished folding and sealing the report cards, and I’m about to drive them to the post office now! Our teachers have invested an enormous amount of time to assess your kids’ mastery of concepts and write thoughtful comments for you to read about your child’s progress and growth, and I hope you enjoy reading them and reflecting on them with your child. :) Look for them to arrive in your mailbox on Monday or Tuesday.

If you have any questions for the teachers, *please* let them enjoy their winter break and hold off on emailing them until second semester.

Also, if you wish to make a year-end, tax-deductible donation to the Da Vinci Schools’ Annual Giving Campaign, you can make a year-end gift at: http://www.davincischools.org/makeagift.shtml.

Have a terrific break! Second semester will begin for the kids on Monday, January 11th.

Presentations of Learning Begin Next Week!

Next week is a special schedule for presentations of Learning, with students attending either the morning session or the afternoon session, depending on when the POL is scheduled. (Supervision will only be provided for students during the session for which they are scheduled.) Please help your student practice their POL by being an audience for them this weekend, and make sure to attend and watch their presentation!
