Volunteers needed for the PTA Clothing Center on April 27 This is the second of two dates da Vinci is asked to send 4-6 volunteers to help staff the Clothing Center. Located at Marshall High School, the center serves kids in need from throughout PPS. It’s an important and rewarding gig. Let Sheli know if you can do this for any part of the 9:30am - 1:30pm day. More information on the Clothing Center is HERE.
The da Vinci Spring Dance Concert is May 5 at 7:00pm and May 6 at 3:00 and 7:00pm. Tickets are still available online and 100 will be held for sale at the box office starting one hour before each show. All seats will be general admission for $10.
A volunteer sign up is now available. Please save the dates on your calendar and find a way to volunteer and see the show. We also need a couple folks to take the lead in organizing concession and rose sales. Please let Sheli know if you can do some shopping and help with this.
2017-18 PTSA Officers Needed If you are interested in serving on the executive committee for next year, please contact Sheli. The co-presidents will be moving on and the current treasurer is going to move out of state as soon as the school year is finished so it is important to have a new crew with a transition plan. We need to have new officers elected and set up to sign checks before the end of the year.
White Bird Field Trip Coming April 26 If you have not yet, please make sure the permission form is in on Monday. On Wednesday we will have a special schedule with shortened classes and information sessions 2nd period for forecasting for 6th and 7th graders and end of year planning for 8th graders. We expect all students to attend the field trip, Che Malambo, an Argentine Dance Company. The trip is sponsored by White Bird and there is no cost for tickets or transportation.
Grant Theatre presents Chicago. Tickets are on sale now for shows starting April 27. Shows are at 7pm and tickets are general admission for $12/adult and $10/student. There are several da Vinci alumni in the cast and it’s going to be a great show. More information at http://www.granthighschooltheater.com.
