Thank you

On behalf of all the adults here at DVS, thank you once again for trusting us with your children this year. They are a truly wonderful group of young men and women whom we enjoy, admire and respect, and who it was our pleasure leading, serving, and taking care of as best we could.

Our teachers will be completing students’ final grades and report card comments over the next 2 days, and we will mail out the report cards on Monday. Though the teachers and counselors will not be answering emails over the summer break, you are always welcome to email me with any questions you have.

I will be keeping you up to date with details about our move into the new campus as I learn them :)

Again, thank you. 2016-2017 (or as we call it here, “DVS Season 8″) has been our best year yet.


Next Week is Teacher Appreciation Week!


Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Erin and I will be standing in the parking lot each morning before school with this box to collect any notes of appreciation you might like to write to any of your childrens’ teachers. You can also bring notes and cards in and drop them off any time at our office.

Your words of encouragement mean a great deal to these dedicated professionals who love your kids and who work so hard to help them be successful!


Week 33 Schedule

Here’s the schedule for next week! It is the last week of seminars, and it also the week of state testing for 10th graders on Monday & Tuesday and 11th graders on Wednesday and Thursday.
Please note that the School Site Council Meeting that was scheduled for Tuesday 5/2 has been moved to Tuesday 5/9.

DVS Fundraiser @ Strand Brewery Monday 4/17 4-9pm

We hope all of our DVS parents will join us tomorrow night at Strand Brewery in Torrance with friends, co-workers, family, and anyone else who wants to support the Da Vinci Youth & Government program (and enjoy some fantastic locally brewed beer)!

Strand’s Torrance taproom, normally closed on Mondays, will be open just for Da Vinci from 4-9pm, and there will also be delicious tacos with all the fixings to make this a perfect place for dinner. Please come join us and support our fantastic kids! (However, this is an adults-only event :) )

Please share this post with your family and friends who live in the south bay!
