The Overnighter is our 9th grade trip and one of the most memorable experiences for students in high school. Most freshmen have registered, but if you haven’t please come see Jackie in the DVC office or register online: http://davincischools.org/overnighter
The Overnighter will take place Thursday September 3rd through Friday September 4th. Ninth grade students will come to school at the normal time on Thursday – 9am, and leave from Da Vinci Communications around 9:30am. We will spend the night at Camp Conrad Chinnock by Big Bear Mountain, and then return to campus Friday afternoon. All students will be dismissed Friday at the normal dismissal time – 3:55pm.
Here is the bell schedule for the upcoming weeks of school:
Seminars (our student electives that take place the last hour of the day Monday through Thursday) will begin on September 8. In the next week or two we will release the seminar list and descriptions for students this year. Students will receive a hard copy and you can access a copy posted to the blog so that you can discuss with your students and they can make a great choice.
Office hours began today – here is the schedule for when teachers will be available for Office Hours.
The first day of school is Tuesday, August 18th. Gates will open at 8:50am and school will begin at 9am like a normal Tuesday. Office hours will begin week 2 of school, so for the first week we will not be opening campus until 8:50am. Starting week 2 we will open the gates from 8:00am to 8:15am for students to come into office hours, then again at 8:50 for the start of the school day.
When school begins day 1, students will enter through the front office and head to their advisories. We will post students’ names on their advisory doors, and there will be teachers guiding students to their classes. Students will receive their schedules during their first advisory class on the first day of school.
Remember to follow dress code – collared shirts or Da Vinci shirts and appropriate pants or bottoms (no gym shorts or sweats).
Seminars will begin on September 8. Students will all receive seminar descriptions during the second of school and they will also be posted to the blog families can discuss seminar options together.
Teachers have put together their materials lists for the year. We ask that students gather these materials by the end of the first week of school, but having them on day 1 would be very useful!
Back to school night will be August 26th from 6pm to 7:30pm. Come meet your child’s teachers and see the campus! More details will be put out once school begins.
It was great meeting all the students and families who came in during summer bridge week! A big thank you to Brittany, our school counselor, who organized summer bridge, and all of our 10th and 11th grade student mentors who were here this week introducing new students to DVC.
