Dear DVS Families,
Your report cards have been printed and will be arriving at your home next week! Thank you again for trusting us with your child’s education and growth. We look forward to seeing everyone back on Tuesday, August 16th!
As a reminder, this summer is a break for our teachers and counselors too – they will not be answering emails until we return in August, so if you have any urgent concerns or questions, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is just a friendly reminder that summer school starts on Monday, June 13th through Friday, July 22nd, with no school on Friday, July 1st and Monday, July 4th. If your child has signed up for Geometry, class starts at 8:00 and ends at 11:30 am. If your child has signed up for Algebra 1, class starts at 12:00 and ends at 3:30 pm. Students will not earn credit for the course if they exceed one absence per semester. The first semester is from Monday June 13th – Thursday, June 30th, and the second semester is from Tuesday, July 5th – Friday, July 22nd.
Happy Wednesday & last day of the school year!

DVS week 38 schedule
DVS is once again partnering with PJ Test Prep (www.pjtestprep.com) to provide ACT test prep over summer on a limited, first-come-first-serve basis. Priority will be given to 11th grade students at DVS.
The cost of the course will be $50 and will include 4 Saturday classes, a scored take-home test, and a final test review session.
The course will consist of 4 classes from 10:00-12:30 on the 4 Saturdays in August: 8/6, 8/13, 8/20, and 8/27. Students will receive a take-home practice ACT which will be scored and returned in a final review session on Thursday 9/8 at an evening review session. The real ACT is on Saturday 9/10.
Note: The deadline to register for the 9/10 ACT Exam is August 7, but don’t wait until then to sign up! DVS is a testing center but if it fills up, you’ll have to take the test somewhere else.
