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!

Super Hero

It is officially Pennies for Patients season at DVA. We are joining together to raise funds for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS). Historically, DVA has donated over $100,000 to LLS in support of research to fight blood disease. This year, each classroom has set a goal of $250, while our school goal is $10,000!  We are heroes, uniting to battle bad blood cells that cause cancer. Check with your child’s teacher on how you can help, and join our super hero squad.

We will be helping kids like Sam, shown in the video here.

Students attended our Kick Off assembly on Friday, February 2, learning how giving activates the super hero’s power to gain victory over the bad blood cells. DVA Eagles, “Why do we give? Because we CARE!”
