Happy Super Bowl Sunday, DVC Families,
Last week was a great one at DVC! Some of the highlights included learning about Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) during Advisory and hearing our 9th grade students perform spoken word in our Common Area.
We appreciate those of you who were able to attend our College Information Webinars hosted by our school counselors. If you were unable to attend, please view the recordings at the links below. Unfortunately, the recording for the 10th grade meeting did not work, so we only have the 9th and 11th grade recordings available.
The week ahead is also action-packed, so please read through all the events listed below:
