  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Ms. Kimmel and Mr. Lagunes' Leadership class. Kimmel and Lagunes describe their homeroom as being energetic, kind, creative, easy going and mostly hard working.  What they like best about teaching this class is just watching students take a leadership role in all of our campus-wide activities. This class is currently working on planning Spring Play Day. YAY! The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is planning fun events for all of the school. Thank you to Mr. Lagunes and Mrs. Kimmel and to their 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

  • About that last homeroom: Ms. Kimmel, Mr. Lagunes, and their Leadership class have done an amazing job this year coordinating so many activities. Dances? That’s them. Sprit week? That’s them. If you see either of these teachers or any Leadership student, tell them thanks for such a great job.

  • Dear Homeroom Teachers- This Friday will be our final Student of the Week awards for the year. So, just a quick reminder that your Student of the Week nomination certificates are due by the end of the school day today (to either Kimmel's box in the DV office, room B-4, to the “Student of the Week” box on the Emerson side of things, or simply hand it to the student who comes to your room to read the Live Bulletin on Wednesdays...please do not turn in your certificate any place other than these four places because unfortunately we cannot ensure that they will get to us in time if they are not turned in one of these ways).  Unfortunately, if we receive your nomination after Wednesday, the student you nominated may not be able to be included in this week's Student of the Week announcement (although we will keep the certificate so they can be included in next week’s Student of the Week announcement).  Thank you so much for taking the time to recognize your students’ accomplishments.

  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is Mr. Bentz’s Woodshop class.  Mr. Bentz describes his homeroom as being fun because it includes students who act like the Three Stooges but there are many more than three people who act this way.  What he likes best about teaching this class is that they are always working on projects. This class is currently working on building a pen, a boat, and an airplane. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is building new things and having many opportunities to learn from their mistakes. Thank you to Mr. Bentz and to his 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

  • Homeroom of the Week: This week’s Homeroom of the Week is the Library and its wonderful TA’s. Ms. McCutcheon describes the 4th period library TAs as being very helpful and hard working.  What she likes best about working with these TAs is that it is a very small group of students so there’s time to explore the library. She also like how the students help deliver items and maintain the library. The TAs are currently working on getting rid of old books so they can send them to Puerto Rico. The most interesting thing they will work on this quarter is getting the library ready for the end of the year textbook return. Thank you to Ms. McCutcheon and to her 4th period TAs for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

Mr. Bodine describes his homeroom as being very energetic, fun and always eager to learn.  What he likes best about teaching this class is their positive energy and how they always want to learn. This class is currently working on rules for lines, slopes, and y-intercepts (A.K.A. the y = mx + b format). The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is finally being able to determine the rules of lines just by looking at graphs. Thank you to Mr. Bodine and his 4th period class for all that they do to contribute to the Emerson/Da Vinci campus.

This class is currently looking at European Middle Ages with a focus on Federalism and taxation. The most interesting thing they will work on this unit is simulations on feudal society and how that economy works.

They also love to read. This class is currently working on poetry, figurative language, and reading and writing different types of poetry.
