Recycling at Da Vinci Schools

Students and staff at Da Vinci are working to implement a recycling program to educate students and adults on the importance of recycling and raise awareness about how our waste can negatively impact our community and planet.

Students and staff intend to make this a sustainable program and plan to roll it out this coming fall.

We are working on obtaining recycling bins and educational signage to help teach our community the right way to clean up.

If you are interested in learning more or wanting to help with this program please complete this form.

Thank you!

Message from Erin D’Souza

Dear DVS Students and Families,

It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to all the students and families of Da Vinci Science. For the 2019-2020 school year, I have accepted the position as Principal of Da Vinci Communications. This decision is bittersweet; I am sad to be leaving DVS yet excited about the leadership opportunity at DVC.

Serving as Assistant Principal at Da Vinci Science has been a great honor and a defining part of my life. At DVS, our motto is “this is home,” and I am grateful to have called this place my home for the last ten years. I have enjoyed working with and learning from the staff, students, and families, and I cherish the visits from our DVS alumni. I will miss these special people tremendously, and I look forward to saying hi and checking in with all of you when we cross paths.

It has been a pleasure to work alongside Principal Steve Wallis, who is a tremendous school leader, and I know that DVS is in excellent hands with his continued leadership. As always, I thank you for your support and for the trust that you placed in me and all of the DVS staff as we worked together to provide an excellent education for the DVS students.

 

Sincerely,

Erin D’Souza

Assistant Principal

Whooping Cough Information

Parents and Guardians:

At this time, we have 3 cases of Pertussis (whooping cough) at DVS. Please see attachments from the Department of Public Health.

Pertussis is treated with antibiotics and even if your child is vaccinated, they can become ill because immunity lessens over time.

If your child is coughing, or starts to cough take your student to the doctor and let them know they may have been exposed to pertussis (whooping cough).

Thank you all and don’t hesitate to contact the school nurse with further questions.
