Summer Bridge: August 10th-13th, 9am to 12pm
Attention all new students (incoming 9th graders as well as transfer students) – we are hosting a summer bridge program for all new students and we would love to introduce you to Da Vinci Communications (DVC) before the official start of the school year. This is a voluntary program, and all new students are highly encouraged to come join us to learn about Da Vinci and meet your new classmates and teachers!
Summer Bridge will run from Monday August 10th through Thursday August 13th from 9am to 12pm.
Summer Bridge/Welcome Week is a week-long program that allows freshmen students, transfer students, and their families to experience the Da Vinci Communications (DVC) environment and culture prior to entering in the fall. Summer Bridge/Welcome Week will bridge the gap between middle school and high or their old school and DVC through a series of team building activities, introducing DVC’s signature practices, and other helpful information that will give freshmen students, transfer students, and their families a head-start on all things DVC. Ultimately, they will be able to build relationships with other students, faculty & staff, and reduce the amount anxiety of starting a new school brings.
