Digital Communication

DVA is continually looking for ways to do our part in conserving resources. We realize that fliers, announcements, calendars, etc are often discovered crumpled up in the bottom of a backpack. Therefore, we plan to reduce our use of paper, and improve communication, by sending schoolwide fliers, calendars, announcements, etc. through our digital platform, Remind. Thank you for supporting our efforts to reduce waste!

Here is a link to our calendar for March 2019.

National School Choice Week 2019

Why do we celebrate National School Choice Week? School choice means giving parents access to the best K-12 education options for their children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, and public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

DVA staff would like to thank you for making Desert View Academy your school of choice! Check out our video: NSCW 2019: Time to dance!

 

Hour of Code

There’s something for everyone during Hour of Code! Kids of all ages and skill levels will find something that inspires them to join the millions of other students around the world who are coding this week. Kinder will learn basic drag and drop commands with block coding. First and Second grade will learn to sequence through block coding with Tynker. Third and Fourth grade will learn about the fundamentals of code through block coding with Tynker. Finally, the Fifth grade will write code commands, loops, and learn how to debug with the Swift code language used by iOS devices.

Our activities will ensure that our students have an organized, engaging, and exciting Hour of Code! Ask your child what s/he is learning. It will be very cool!
