NICE TO KNOW
The lost and found has grown tremendously since the weather has cooled down. Please remember to label your child’s belongings. Applied labels are a great way to label belongings and 20% goes back to our school.
Please remind your child to check the lost and found for his/her belongings. The lost and found will be donated on Friday, November 16.
Thank you to all of the families who came out and supported the library and granted wishes! We had a great fair and wonderful volunteers.
We raised $4,037 in Scholastic dollars, it will be used to buy books for the library. I did receive the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid pre-ordered books today, and I have handed them out to those who ordered the book.
I could not have done this without the support of DaVinci Academy families, You are the best! – Rachel Brown
Music Performances and Informances
The DaVinci Academy Music Department is excited to share our 2018-2019 school year performance dates. This year, performances fall into two categories: evening concerts and daytime informances, both of which families are invited to watch. An informance gives students the opportunity to demonstrate the foundations of music by covering multiple state standards and showcases how music connects to other subjects. Along with evening concerts, informances will give students a well-rounded and meaningful learning experience.

BRRR – Do You Have the Silent Dismissal App?
The teachers who assist your children at the end of the day in car line would be greatly assisted if everyone who picked children up would use the Silent Dismissal app. We often have trouble with phones freezing as teachers are entering numbers on cold days and parents can easily dismiss their children from the warmth of the car using the app. So, if you are able, please contact the office to get set up with the Silent Dismissal app. Thank you!

Classroom Snacks are a great way for our students to stay energized and full throughout their day. We are starting to see more and more unhealthy snack choices that do not fit our Wellness Policy. Chips, Cookies, Candy, and Takis are examples of snacks that should not be in the classroom.
Please make sure your child is bringing healthy snack options that will fuel not only their bodies, but their minds. To see a list of Healthy snack ideas, please click on the link. Healthy Snack Ideas
