Fire and Ice– Children will be dazzled and entertained as they interact with our Mad Scientists!  Foggy dry ice storms, special fire that leaves no residue and even a special Mad Science “burp” potion will amaze children as they learn about chemical reactions and the states of matter.  Additional details will be announced later, so stay tuned to the facebook group.

 

 

Home-based Adventure:

With your mom or dad create a plan for a routine for one time of your day. For example:

  • In the morning what three things do you need to do to be ready for the day?
  • At bedtime what are three things you can do on your own to be ready for bed?
  • At meal time can you help set the table or clean your plate up in addition to washing your hands?

 

Create a plan and then implement it. The Adventure is complete when you have followed your routine for 7 days.

Home-based Adventure:

A self-starter is “a person who is sufficiently motivated or ambitious to complete important projects without having to be reminded by someone else .”  Choose 3 important areas in your life and for one week take the initiative to do those 3 things without having to be reminded or asked. Some examples could be

  • doing homework
  • making your bed
  • helping younger siblings
  • helping with dinner
  • working on a project that is important to you

 

You Choose!  And have fun with it!

Super Achiever Adventure

 

Ready to make being a self-starter a permanent part of who you are? Keep up your self-starter habits for one month. Focus on just those 3 areas. At the end of the 30 days you will have formed 3 new habits for a better you!

 

It’s usually a good idea to make changes one at a time. Feel free to spread your three things out into 3 different time periods.

DaVinci Academy Distance Education Program empowers the parent and the students with a structured design.

 

Davinci Distance Program

 

This unique program is a hybrid between homeschool and public school, meaning students work on curriculum at home and they also receive on-site instruction up to a day and a half a week.

 

The main on-site day is called, “EPIC,” and it is a full day of school.  During this time, students receive instruction in the areas of History, Science, P.E., and various elective classes.

 

For the at-home instruction, families will choose Math, Language Arts, and two on-line supplements. Families have 30 days to determine that this curriculum is a good fit for their family. Many curriculum options are available and are listed under the “Curriculum” tab on the website. http://www.davincidistance.org/

 

Davinci also offers many supplemental resources available through the resource library. Students are welcome to check out a laptop for the school year if they are interested in this option. The resource library tab on the website lists the many options for checkout. A monthly newsletter is distributed via Facebook and the website so that parents are aware of how to supplement at home what the students are learning in class.

 

In addition to the on-site day, students have the option of attending another half day of “Specials Classes.” Students can participate in up to three hours of classes either in the morning or afternoon block. There are many classes from which to choose; the classes and the location of those options are listed under the “Location” tab on our website.

 

Our program recently added the option to attend outsourcing classes. The parents work directly with the company to attend Davinci group lessons. You can find our vendor’s information here: http://www.davincidistance.org/locations/outsourcing/

 

A variety of educational field trips are offered every other Friday at a discounted price for parents to attend with their children. The entire family is welcome! Big events are also scheduled throughout the year that will allow our families time to get to know each other and build a sense of community.

 

Each family is assigned an educational specialist (ES) who is a certified teacher. Davinci is a public charter school, so meeting with the ES and monitoring students’ progress (benchmarking) are two requirements in maintaining educational funding. The ES will meet with each family face to face monthly as support throughout the school year, to review the selected curriculum and to set goals for the month. Students are benchmarked through an online assessment three times a year, and the results are viewed only by family members and the ES.  Students’ grades include curriculum progression, monthly meetings, and progress toward benchmarks.
