Multi-Cultural Fair Today!

Happy Wellness Wednesday, Connect TK-8 Families!

Don’t forget that our Multi-Cultural Fair is happening TODAY, Wednesday 9/29 from 4:00pm-6:00pm outdoors on the Connect Campus! Many families have signed up to share more about their heritage and culture, and we have awesome stations created of activities for all, sponsored by our Core 4 Planning Committee!

While masks are optional outdoors, we encourage our families to wear masks when unable to physically distance (especially while at activity stations in close proximity to others).

We hope to see you there!

Spirit Days are Back!

Hello Connect K8 Families,

Spirit Days are back at Connect! Our first Spirit Days of the year are THIS Friday 9/24 and next Tuesday, 9/28! Spirit Day themes are in conjunction with our FAN Annual Rhythm Events, and this Spirt Day is “Honoring my heritage and identity” in preparation for our Multi-Cultural Fair on Wednesday, 9/29 on campus at 4:00pm (sign up here to attend and participate!).

 

On Spirit Day, your student may come dressed in any way that aligns with the theme of “honoring my heritage and identity”. Our only ask is that students come dressed in a way that honors their own heritage or way that they express their identity (and not someone else’s), and that they adhere to school appropriate ideas, including closed toed shoes.

 

Thank you, and we look forward to celebrating our community on Spirit Day and at the Multi Cultural Fair!

 

Have a Great Week,

The Team at Da Vinci Connect

Help us Support Da Vinci RISE this week at Chiptole!

Happy Monday Connect K8 Families!

Da Vinci RISE High launched their inaugural Giving Campaign last week. As part of their efforts, they are hosting a fundraiser in collaboration with Chipotle this Wednesday, September 22 from 4:00 – 8:00pm. We’d love to have as many members of our community as possible show up to support them.

Not only is Chipotle donating 33% of all proceeds directly to RISE, but through the generosity of Desolation Hotel, all funds raised from this event (as well as from donations made during the Giving Campaign) will be matched up to $25,000! In other words, you can double your impact by grabbing Chipotle on your way home this Wednesday!

Please see below for information, and share with others who may be interested in joining!

 

When  Wednesday, September 22 

4:00 – 8:00pm *only*

Where  Chipotle

307 North Pacific Hwy

El Segundo, CA 90245

How  Be sure to tell them you’re there to support RISE in order for 33% of all proceeds to be donated!

  • You can place an order online using the code ZXCM3N7,    and pick it up on your way home
  • Or place your order in person and either show them the flyer (linked below!), or tell them you’re there to support RISE High.

 

Have a Fantastic Week!

Independent Study Enrollment Agreements!

Hello Da Vinci Connect K8 Families,

You received an e-mail from Jacob Diaz yesterday, Monday 8/30/21, asking you to sign and submit your child(ren)’s Independent Study Enrollment Agreement for the 2021-2022 School Year. This document is a requirement for enrollment at Da Vinci Connect as mandated by Independent Study State Law–it is vital that both you and your student read and sign this document ASAP!

It is imperative that:

  1. Students MUST sign for themselves regardless of their age. It must be very clear to our auditors that parents nor teachers signed for them. For our youngest students, it is okay if the signature does not look like their name.
  2. Signatures are easiest on tablets or phones where a finger or stylus can be used. If you are on a laptop or desktop, it is okay if your child’s signature is “the best they can do.”
  3. The Independent Study Enrollment Agreement must be submitted for each enrolled student. You should receive one per each student, if you have multiple students enrolled with us.

 

We are asking that you sign the Connect Independent Study Enrollment Agreement NO LATER THAN Friday 9/3/21.

 

Thank you for helping us maintain our compliance with the state!

 

Best,

The Team at Da Vinci Connect

Da Vinci Connect K8 Welcome Back Party!

Hello Da Vinci Connect K8 Families!

We want to remind you about our Welcome Back Party THIS Friday, 8/20 from 11:00am-1:00pm outdoors on the Connect campus! There will be a scavenger hunt that takes you through campus to meet some special people, engage in some fun activities, and allow you to connect with other families before classes begin on August 23rd! While masks are optional outdoors, please wear a mask when not able to physically distance (in line, at an activity station, etc). If you’d like to participate in our Tie Dye station, be sure to bring a white article of clothing!

Finally, we will have the Whacky Shrimp Food Truck and Adriana’s Mobile Library on site! The food truck is ready to serve up a delicious menu of lunch items for sale, and Adriana’s library is looking for children’s book donations! Both can be found in our backyard during the party. **when eating, please be sure to sit no more than 4 people from different households at the same table. Thank you! 

This is NOT a drop off event. Please plan to participate with and supervise your child(ren) at all times.

We hope to see you there!
