Welcome Back!!!!! I along with the rest of the teachers and staff are extremely excited this year's learning opportunities. We have a lot of good things in store for your child. We know you choose DaVinci for enhanced learning opportunities both now and in the future. We aim to please.

One of our major school goals this year is to keep parents informed of all the wonderful learning opportunities that your child is involved in or should get involved in. We know that real learning happens when parents and schools work together to motivate students to reach high and challenging learning goals. In fact, "progams and interventions that engage families in supporting their children's learning at home are linked to higher student achievement."1

Ways to get involved:

  1. Create a Canvas parent account and talk to your student each week about courses on Canvas
  2. Take time to have your child summarize his/her learning in courses they find interesting
  3. Set Canvas notifications to receive calendar updates/changes to stay informed
  4. Work with your child to set goals to attend the Tech College and get a certificate while it's still free to attend
  5. Encourage your child to take AP courses
  6. Motivate your child to take the free online ACT prep course or work with the junior team teachers to increase their ACT score
  7. Create a goal to take a college course while in high school
  8. Continue to teach students about hard work, high expectations, delayed gratification, and grit when it comes to learning
  9. Create academic goals and develop simple plans to achieve them, then review them each Sunday
  10. Encourage your child to get involved in after school clubs
