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:
- Children take their jobs as learners seriously.
- 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.

From the Office
Extra 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.
Reminders from the Office
As it gets colder, be sure your kiddos are dressed appropriately with warm clothing and winter gear.
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 there will be a change in your student’s dismissal plan, please let the office know by 2:30 at the latest, so we have adequate time to get the message to teachers.
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
