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.

Sincerely,
Steve

Presentation of Learning Policies

Hi DVS Families! Here are some of the policies regarding POLs at DVS:

Missed presentations: There will not be any POL makeups allowed. Students who miss a POL with a valid reason* will be excused from the POL. * Valid reasons include urgent doctor’s appointments with doctor’s note and parent confirmation, hospitalization with appropriate documentation, and deaths in the family with appropriate documentation.

Students arriving late to their POL presentation: The timer for each student’s POL will begin at their scheduled time. If a student arrives late, they will be allowed to give their presentation but will only have the time remaining on the timer to do so.

Students not in professional dress and/or missing a script or evidence: Students who are not dressed professionally or who are demonstrating a lack of preparedness will be permitted to present, but will be awarded a presentation preparedness score that reflects their lack of preparedness.

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!
