This week is a normal schedule, with girls’ basketball tryouts Tuesday afternoon, boys’ basketball tryouts Friday afternoon, and the Back-to-School Dance here at DVS on Friday from 7-10pm! DVS week 5 schedule
Here’s the schedule for next week. We encourage all students to be coming to their teachers’ office hours to get help and feedback on their work!
Wiseburn – Da Vinci Athletics Information
All Da Vinci Families with a student interested in playing sports at Wiseburn – Da Vinci in 2017-18 are encouraged to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday Sept 12th in the Multi-Purpose Room at Dana Middle School. The meeting will begin promptly at 6pm, and should last about an hour. Families will learn:
- CIF Eligibility and how Da Vinci interprets the eligibility requirements,
- the tryout process,
- the Athletic Clearance process, including physicals and transportation to games,
- uniforms and equipment,
- the team store, and more.
The meeting is not mandatory, yet it will answer many of the questions we have received over the summer, and have you prepared for what to expect as your children begin their high school sports journey.
Our new Da Vinci website has launched at www.davincischools.org!! Check it out!!
There are many new features suggested by Da Vinci families, staff, and other key stakeholders. One of the features we are most excited about is our new online event calendars that bring all Da Vinci and Wiseburn school calendars, as well as athletics and arts, into one central location. You can view and filter calendars, subscribe to them, add them to your personal calendar, forward to friends and family, and be notified of changes when they occur via text and/or email. Check out the Event Calendars here: http://www.davincischools.org/events/.
You can learn more about the web redesign project here: http://www.davincischools.org/new-year-new-look/
We invite you to explore our new website and let us know how we’re doing by emailing email@example.com.

We hope you are enjoying the last day of summer break! We can’t wait to welcome our students tomorrow morning for the 2017-2018 school year – we’ll be opening our doors at 8:30am tomorrow morning to begin the new year!
Please remember that this year, classes begin at 8:40am Monday-Thursday and 9:40am on Friday, and the school doors will open (and stay open) for office hours at 7:40 Monday-Thursday and at 9:30 on Friday. The school day will end at 3:35 each day.
Tomorrow morning, students will gather in the back yard, meet up with their advisor, and begin the day in advisory class where they will receive their schedules.
I have attached our week 1 schedule, the tentative calendar for 2017-2018, and the DVS dress code for your reference.
See you in the morning!
Good Afternoon, DVS Families!
As you may have read in the letter from Dr. Wunder today, our new campus won’t be 100% ready for us to move in before opening day on August 22nd (you can read the letter by clicking on this link: http://douglasat201.org/delay-in-new-high-school-building-opening).
Because of this, we’ll need to start the school year on our current campus and then move in to the new one sometime during first semester when it’s all ready to go.
While this is certainly a disappointing inconvenience, it’s nothing we can’t handle together as a school family. We will be working hard to get our current campus ready to kick off the 2017-2018 school year on Tuesday, August 22nd. We can’t wait to welcome our students back!
This historic year will certainly be an adventure and there will never be another one like it – and there’s no other group of staff, students and families I would rather be with on this journey.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
*Note: We will begin the school year with our NEW schedule, which is shifted 20 minutes earlier. Classes begin at 8:40am and end at 3:35pm on Mondays-Thursdays, and go from 9:40-3:35 on Fridays.
Report cards have been mailed out and I have turned Powerschool access back on Have a terrific summer!
