A Giant FAN Thank You!!
Thank you to Becky Dawson-Marble and her team for a fabulous (and stealthy) staff appreciation event. Becky and her daughter Cami chaired the event and hosted it in their home.
"Operation Moustache" was top secret, whisking the staff away to an unknown location for an unknown event by the three secret agents in the photo. The mission was a complete success!
Thank You & Have A Wonderful Summer!!
FAN says thank you to all of our DVIA families for all the ways you found to pitch in this school year and make DVIA a special experience for our students. Have a fun and relaxing summer and we'll see you next year!

Contact Annette Owens with questions.
Curriculum Materials Wanted
Do you have gently used curriculum materials that another family might appreciate next year? We will be reorganizing PERC over the summer and would love to incorporate your materials. We plan to include a lending library as well as a resource swapping zone. Please drop off your items to Janette.

Coming Up Soon! Mark Your Calendars
Young Scholars Program At UCLA - Young Mathematicians
July 7th - July 25th
This program is for students entering grades K-6 who want to engage in hands-on, problem solving mathematics. Students will work independently and collaboratively, combining conceptual understanding with basic skills to solve problems and to think critically. This constructivist, activities-based approach to mathematics is enriching, motivating, fun, and challenging. Many other courses focusing on reading, writing, science, and social studies are also offered.

Have a great Summer!
