Dear da Vinci Families and Friends,
On Friday, the two Dance 1-2 Showcases were fabulous! Congratulations to Claire, Sara, Andrea and participating students. The demonstrated skill and shared enthusiasm were priceless. It was another typically proud da Vinci evening.
On Saturday, December 2, our annual da Vinci Arts Fair was equally brilliant! Student and professional artists wowed and enticed shoppers to benefit our PTSA. As I shared at the Showcase, a hard working and talented group of parent volunteers made this happen. Please join me in giving a huge thank you to our Arts Fair Committee…you’re amazing!
