News and Notes from Academie Da Vinci
As we move into spring we are always working with our students to prepare them for success in academics and in their social and emotional growth and development. Yesterday we had a lengthy training with the grade 3-5 teachers regarding the upcoming Florida State Assessments. Here at Academie Da Vinci we are proud of the A School rating we achieved for last year and we are working to earn that again. Important components of student success on any test are: a positive attitude, the ability to manage stress and an understanding of maintaining their focus and effort over the testing time. Our students will have a snack and stretch break before testing and another stretch break during each testing session. They’ll have recess after each testing session. Here is the testing schedule for Academie Da Vinci: (in accordance with Pinellas County Schools). Please make sure your child has a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast on testing days. Make – up tests will be given for any absent students on the days following the original test days.
March 1 – Writing grades 4 & 5 March 29 and 30 - Grade 3 ELA (Reading)
April 5 and 6 - Grade 3 & 4 Math April 12 and 13 – Grade 4 & 5 ELA (Reading)
April 26 and 27 –Grade 5 Math May 3 and 4 - Grade 5 Science
Academie Da Vinci Middle School is approved! By a unanimous vote of the Pinellas County School Board, our request to amend our charter to add Middle School was officially approved this morning. We want to thank so many supportive parents, the Board of Directors, the PTA, the PTA Board of Directors and our staff, faculty and students for your most wonderful support through this process. We will be hosting a DISCOVERY NIGHT on Tuesday December 15 from 6-7 pm to share more details of our middle school program and enrollment process.

Academie Da Vinci Charter School for the Arts and Technology is a Kindergarten through 8th grade school located in Dunedin, Florida. We are an A Rated School!!We are the first charter school to be established in Pinellas County. Our school is part of the Pinellas County Schools and follows the Pinellas County Schools curriculum. We enhance that curriculum with a curriculum program called STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and math. STEAM curriculum offers students the opportunity to learn new skills and information in multiple ways and to demonstrate their learning through projects and presentations. Academie Da Vinci follows the county's school-year calendar. (See the calendar for the schedule of events.)
The school's two buildings house the school offices, classrooms, a Multi-Purpose room, and Music, Visual Art, and Dance Studios. In 2016, the school is renovating the previously vacant space in the building located at 1064 Keene Rd for the Middle School. We are building classrooms for the middle school, a science lab, a large media center, a second multi-purpose room and administrative offices.
