Supporting Da Vinci Charter Academy

Hello DaVinci Community! 

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! 

My name is Amy Haug and I am the DV Booster teacher grant coordinator, and acting Booster president. 

I hope that the transition from summer to school has been a smooth one for both you and your student. This is a year of great transition. We have a new grade alignment with 9th grade at the High School with the beautiful new Tech Hub. And at the JRHS, there is a larger class population and a new Da Vinci Jr. High Principal, Marla Bowen. There is certainly a lot going on and we expect this to be an exciting year. 

The Boosters are also having a transitional year.  

During the last two years, due to the pandemic, we have been limited in our ability to do a lot of the activities that we have done in the past. Consequently, most of our leadership and volunteers have had to step back or have graduated with their students. I want to thank them for valiantly holding the ship together during a very turbulent time. A big thank you to Martha Diepenbrock, our outgoing president, and Byron Van Dyke, who continues as treasurer for one more year, for navigating a rough couple of years. We are all very grateful for your leadership!

As we start this school year, we are excited to make a new beginning. 

Our goal is to support the DaVinci community and we need your help!

Here are some ways that you can get involved:


The boosters raise money to support students and teachers. We had a great start to the school year at registration and thank you to everyone that donated.
If you are interested in donating, please donate online at or send a check to Da Vinci Booster Club - 1400 E. 8th St. Davis, CA 95616

Your donations fund:
  1. Class signature projects
  2. Field trips
  3. Teacher Appreciation
  4. Fall & Winter Feasts
  5. Grants to teachers for special needs 
  6. Senior class scholarships
  7. Parent education 
  8. And much more

Nearly all the leadership positions are vacant and we have many other volunteer opportunities available. If you are interested in volunteering for either a leadership position or other event, I invite you to fill out our volunteer interest form. (Volunteer Interest Form). 

Attend our Meetings!

We are having our first Booster meeting Wednesday, September 21at 7:00pm via zoom. 

Here is the Zoom Link & Mtg ID 5390660743

After this first meeting, we plan to host them in-person alternating between the Jr and Sr High School Sites. More information to come. 

We hope to see you there!

Social Events!

Because it has been a rough few years for everyone, our goal is to build community this year. We have some amazing parents planning some really fun, low-key get-togethers so that we can all get to know each other. More details to come! 

As we start this school year, I appreciate your patience and support in getting things up and running.

Please feel free to reach out me at [email protected] with questions, concerns and most of all interest in volunteering! 

I look forward to seeing you at our first meeting next week and at upcoming social events!
