Da Vinci Science will be participating in California’s annual state testing next week. 10th graders will take the California Science Test (CAST) on Monday, May 1st or Tuesday, May 2nd. 11th graders will take the Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC) in both mathematics and language arts on Wednesday, May 3rd and Thursday, May 4th. More details about the tests are included in the links below. If you have any questions about your student’s participation in these tests, please contact me Erin D’Souza at firstname.lastname@example.org or (310) 725-5800.
Here’s the schedule for next week! Tomorrow is a PD day, which means the staff will be working but the students get one more day of break.
Hope to see you at the DVS Y&G fundraiser at Strand Brewing Company in Torrance tomorrow (Monday) from 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!
Today we began a new advisory unit, #samefamilynewhome, in which we hope to prepare our DVS family for the move to the new campus. We began by reading an open letter from me to the DVS family and commonly asked questions about our move, which are here for you to read as well:
Thank you for coming out to our final Exhibition Night on Aviation Boulevard! It was great to see such an excellent turnout. If you haven’t yet signed in to get your credit for showing up, please visit this link: www.tinyurl.com/DVSParentParticipation
Since this was a late night for both students and staff, there will not be any office hours tomorrow morning. Please contact your teacher directly if you had made specific arrangements with them as they might want you to come in anyway.
Thanks again for supporting our DVS students!
We hope to see all of you the the last-ever Exhibition Night at this campus! Doors will open for families and guests at 6pm!
Here’s the schedule for next week – we hope to see you all at Exhibition Night on Wednesday night!
On Friday afternoon our whole school will be walking to see the new campus on Douglas Ave. and then to Del Aire Park where we will end our day. Please make sure to sign the green permission slip that your kids received in advisory this week! Thank you!!
