A Great End

A Great End

As the end of the school year approaches, I would like to  express
my appreciation for the dedication and support of our students’
parents, school staff and Mrs. Burnham on the development of
our class projects.  All this would not have been possible if not
for their support.  Some of the activities in which your children
participated were the celebration of “Day of the Dead”, one of the
most ancient festivities of indigenous origin that has left a very
important cultural mark worldwide.  In the year 2003, this
celebration was named a masterpiece of the oral and intangible
heritage of humanity by UNESCO.

In this day, we pay homage to various latin american authors such as Carlos Fuentes, Octavia Paz and Horacio Quiroga.  Our students represented the lives of each
author, La Catrina and its history. They created murals, flowers and
other projects related to this important celebration.  In this occasion
we had the pleasure of inviting the whole school to participate and
learn more about the Hispanic culture and its traditions

Once again, I thank you for your support and dedication.
Presently we are working on a recycling campaign and a
bullying campaign in which the students will produce a
radio ad and tv commercial, informing the public about
the importance of recycling and the ways of fighting
bullying.  In Da Vinci School we strive for the intellectual
and cultural development in each and every one of our
students, and are always working towards success with
dedication and application of our values. Have a happy summer!

New Greenhouse

New Greenhouse

The Da Vinci greenhouse is now   complete and beginning to be stocked with plants and seeds. The structure is   attracting our community as they drive by and in one instance, a generous   neighbor stopped to donate some seeds.

We are planning to add hydroponic   technology and watch our garden grow. Already, a few plants have been added to   our lunch salads, receiving with rave reviews.
