Welcome to Discovery Elementary
We strive to touch the lives of children in a way that prepares them to take their place as citizens with high academic skills and fine moral character.
Vision for Discovery
Discovery staff will have high expectations for all.
The school will be a place where:

- Staff are professionals who go the extra mile to support children in this journey of learning.
- Parents feel welcome and are given opportunities to be involved in their child's education.
- There is an academic environment that teaches the whole child and treats children with dignity.
- We all get better each day.

January's True Success Theme: Grit

Hanging in there and not giving up. We look forward to recognizing our Dragons displaying grit in the new year.

**Students can be dropped off no earlier than 8:45am.
If you are bringing your student in late, please make sure you come into the office to sign them in so we know your child is safe and accounted for.
If your student will be absent for any reason please make sure you let the office know so we can account for the absence. P: 616-871-1081
If there will be a change in your student’s dismissal plan, please let the office know by 3:00 at the latest, so we have adequate time to get the message to teachers.
Pants: If you have gently used shorts or pants (size 6 and up) that you would like to donate to Discovery, we will gladly take them! We are in desperate need of larger sizes for boys—8-14.
From the Office:
Brrrrr! It’s getting colder! As the weather gets cooler, please remember that our kiddos go outside for recess everyday. Be sure to send kiddos in long pants, jackets and other cool weather gear.
