    Back to School for Gifted Students

     

    Hi Students and Parents:

    The first week of school began with getting comfortable with our learning management system – Canvas, which you can access from the DVUSD start page - https://start.dvusd.org/.  Students will log on with their usual school login information.  All students will begin the day with their grade level homeroom teachers at 8:45 AM for a class meeting.  Then each grade has a daily schedule that your homeroom teacher will send you.

     

    Here’s our district website for parents and students to get an introduction to Canvas - https://www.dvusd.org/Canvas.

     

    Here’s another link with specific login instructions - https://www.dvusd.org/Page/66669.

     

    Gifted Math students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will have a daily Math class with me as their teacher.  In Math we will be learning the standards for the next higher grade level.  Here’s the Gifted Schedule for most school days:
