Happy Saturday, DVC Families,
No School Friday, 2/5: Next week is a special schedule, as Friday (2/5) is a Professional Development Day for staff.
Black History Month: On Monday, we begin our celebration of Black History Month. Our Black Student Union has created school-wide lessons on Black history for our Connections classes. We are grateful for our student leaders, and we work as a school community to embrace Black history not just in February, but throughout the year in our classes and curriculum. This month, we specifically celebrate and highlight the many accomplishments and contributions that Black men and women have made to the fabric of our country.
Senior Cap and Gown Makeups: We are offering two final makeup opportunities for seniors who have yet to take their cap and gown photo as well as seniors who would like a re-take. The dates are Friday, February 5th and Saturday, February 13th between 10am and 3pm. Please sign up here for an appointment. Please remember to bring your cap, gown, and tassel to your appointment.
Academic Workshop Begins: On Tuesday, 2/2, we begin Academic Workshop. Academic Workshop is the classes scheduled in the purple section of the weekly schedule. This is a time for both support classes and honors classes. The support classes are specifically designed to help students who are struggling to earn a passing grade. If your student gets an invitation for a support class, please know that they are expected to attend. Any encouragement you can give them to attend this extra support session is appreciated. If your student would like to earn honors credit for a course, please encourage them to ask their teacher for information about how to participate in honors this semester. Honors classes also meet during this same time according to what is indicated in the weekly schedules.
