Week 6 Preview
Dear DVS Students and Families,
We had another great week at DVS! We hope students enjoyed the Friday off as staff had a very productive Professional Development Day. We had a wonderful Community Dialogue this week. The whole school gathered in the gym to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Thank you, Latinos Unidos, Latinx Club, and Mecha Clubs for leading the school in this celebration by sharing their personal stories of what Hispanic Heritage means to them.
Honors: Honors rollout in classes will continue this week. Honors is an option that is available to all students. Honors projects, assignments, and criteria may vary by course. Please note the Honors Signup Form has been extended to the end of Week 6 and is due Friday, September 23rd.
Canvas Access: Thank you for your patience as we continue to adapt and transition to Canvas as the learning management platform. Parent and guardian logins for Canvas will be issued very soon. For now, we encourage you to use your student’s login information to view course information on Canvas.
