FAN Event: Winter Social
January 24th 5:00-7:00
Let's kick start 2017 with the DVIA Winter Social! DVIA families can mingle with friends, new and old. We are trying to put together a chili bar, hot cocoa & cookie station, winter craft table, and a board game room! Can you help!? We are looking for volunteers to help plan this event by donating supplies and your time. Sign up HERE. If you have any ideas or questions, feel free to contact Lachmi (event chair) HERE.
Dec 19 through Jan 6 We've had a few reported cases of pinworm. Because these are easily spread, please do some online research and if you or your child has symptoms, know there is a fairly easy treatment. One good source of information is the Mayo Clinic's website.
We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a restful time off from school! We look forward to seeing you the week of January 9th. (DVIA staff will return January 3rd-6th to plan 2nd semester.)
Free Society of Women Engineer Field Trip Opportunity!
January 10th, 8am-2pm
Da Vinci Science's Society of Women Engineers (SWE) club is securing a bus and joining Girls Build LA to attend a screening of the film Hidden Figures
, about women in STEM in the US, and they are inviting 10 DVIA 7th and 8th graders to join them for free! There will be 9,000 girls from Los Angeles middle and high schools attending the event. If your daughter would like to attend, please email Michelle to RSVP and attach this permission slip
. Please note that this is a student-only event and students must join the bus ride, not drive separately.
Calling All Artists!
The LA County Science and Engineering Fair is looking for a student to design the cover artwork for the 2017
Science Fair printed program! If your child is interested in entering the contest, please see THIS FLYER
for more information (including this year's theme) and make sure to submit your child's entry to Michelle by January 13th, 2017
. The artwork needs to be submitted by the school, not by the artist. Happy creating!
Kleenex/ tissue donation
The cold season is upon us and our classrooms and offices are going through a lot of tissues! Can you donate a box? We'd surely appreciate it!
