Transportation Changes:

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:

Yay! It’s getting warmer! As the weather gets warmer and rainy days come, please remember that our kiddos go outside for recess everyday. Be sure to send kiddos to school in clothes appropriate for the weather.

Parking Lot Reminders: 
Please be sure our crosswalks are kept 
clear of all vehicles so our families can 
walk across securely.
If you drive a high profile vehicle, please 
watch carefully for our younger students 
who may be below your line of vision.
