Da Vinci offering SAT/ACT Test Prep over winter break

Da Vinci is once again offering an ACT/SAT Prep course to its students through PJ Test Prep, a small Test Prep and Tutoring company based in the south bay. They have been in business since 2005 and have been offering SAT/ACT prep with Da Vinci for 3 yerars and they do a great job!
The course, open to all students from all DV high schools, will be 5 days over winter break from Monday January 7th to Friday January 11th, 2.5 hours per day. Students can sign up for either the AM session (10:00-12:30) or the PM session (1:15-3:45) and are expected to attend the same session for all 5 days. The course costs only $50 per student. Partial scholarships are available, so please don’t let the cost stop you from signing up!
Here’s the link to sign up:
After signing up here, students must pay the $50 course fee to their school’s office. Please make checks out to “Da Vinci Schools” and write “Test Prep” on the memo line.

Week 4 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.

Student Photo Days (Wednesday & Thursday)

Hi Families! We hope to see all of you at Back to School Night tonight! Just a reminder that it starts at 6pm and it’s for all grade levels.

On Wednesday and Thursday, students will be getting their pictures taken here at school. The students will get their picture taken during their English class, so if they have English on Wednesday (periods 1, 3, and 5), they will get their photo taken then. If they have English on Thursday (periods 2, 4, and 6), they will take their photo on Thursday.

See you soon!
