Dana PTSA is excited about another Spooktacular Celebration, which is going to be on Friday, October 26th. Last year, Dana PTSA made over $24,000 at Spooktacular, which helped PTSA fund things like Dana’s News ELA and Dreambox subscriptions for this school year (in addition to paying for all of the “fun stuff” like 8th-grade dance and busses for 6th-grade camp). Our Da Vinci volunteers last year were awesome, and they are a big part of making Spooktacular a success every year. If you are interested in helping out please signup here:
12th Grade Parents: Da Vinci Schools will be hosting a FAFSA workshop on October 25, 2018 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm facilitated by El Camino College. The guest speaker will give you specific instructions on how to complete the FAFSA application and you will complete a paper application to transfer the information online. Keep in mind that the application opens on October 1 and is due on March 2nd.
- Spirit Week: October 29th- Nov. 1st
- Nov. 2nd: No School PD Day
Friendly reminder that all 11th graders at DVC will be taking the PSAT exam on Wednesday, October 10th. The exam is broken up into four sections: Reading, Writing, and two Math sections. Students will be permitted to use a calculator on one of the Math sections, so please make sure your student brings one to school.
The PSAT is a practice exam to prep students for the SAT and it does not impact students’ college applications. Once scores are returned to DVC, students will receive score reports and resources that will help them prepare for the SAT.
9th and 10th graders will be taking the exam in the Spring.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
