    Why give to our Fall ASK? (two perspectives from da Vinci parents)
    “After being a da Vinci parent for 4 years now, each and every student is such an important part of our da Vinci community. The staff and teachers are experts at understanding our children’s strengths, helping them find their way into the community, and positioning them to flourish during their time at da Vinci.” -Beth Woods

    "We are joining the Fall ASK challenge because what da Vinci has given our family is truly priceless.  Our daughters thrive at da Vinci!  Here they are given tools to learn in a way that makes sense to them.  They see that doing their best work brings success and the feeling of pride that comes with that effort is its own reward.  Keeping arts integration at da Vinci strong is important to our family, our community and, education as a whole.   -Jill & Jason Trinchero
