Dear DVC Students and Families,
We had a great week at DVC! Students are working on learning the names of every student in their Advisory as it is really important that all students are known, seen, and valued at DVC. Our seminar program began this week, and seminars have been going great! On Friday, we had a fire drill and we were so impressed with the way that our whole school quickly and safely evacuated the building. This school year is off to a great start.
The Overnighter: The whole school is excited for the Class of 2026 as they prepare to leave for The Overnighter on Tuesday, August 30th.
