The Power of “Yet”

Welcome back, DVA Eagles! I hope you have enjoyed your summer break. Did you attempt to learn a new skill, like swimming, riding a bike, or playing chess? When we try something new that is difficult, we can be tempted to give up. Guess what? Learning takes a lot of effort! DVA Eagles don’t give up when things get difficult; they persevere. Eagles take risks and understand that mistakes are normal when trying hard things. We have a growth mindset and we believe in the power of “yet”. So, instead of saying, “I can’t”, and change your mind and say, “I can’t yet”. Change your words, change your mindset!

We look forward to a great school year, DVA Eagles! Mrs. Weigel

If you arrive before the gate opens, please pull into the parking lot and park. Do not block the turn lane on 16th street or the entrance to DVA. We have many schools in the area, and safety for all is our primary concern. If you choose to arrive early and park, you must get out of your car and walk in at dismissal to retrieve your child/children. There is no entrance to the Car Rider Pro queue from the parking lot.

If you use the queue to pick up your child, please have your Car Rider Pro tag visible so the digital card reader can scan it.

We appreciate it when parents demonstrate good character during drop off, pick up, and while on campus.
