Important! Levy Information

 

Levy Renewal Information

HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FEBRUARY 11, 2020 LEVY RENEWAL?

Levies are the only locally approved ballot measures that directly pay for classroom and education needs in our schools that the state does not fund. This February 11, 2020, voters will have a chance to continue supporting programs and services funded by the previous levy expiring in 2020. More information, here.


Eager Reader

Eager Reader has begun, get started reading today!

 

Encourage a love for reading by participating in this year's Eager Reader program.  Prizes will be awarded to students for at-home reading from January 10th to February 8th. This year's theme is "Get Your Paws on a Good Book" and the Grand Prize is a Kindle E-Reader. 

To get registered, record reading minutes, learn more about the prizes, and volunteer to help... click here.

We've also created a funny video to help get your child excited to start reading...view it here.


Spelling Bee

 

Spelling Bee!

Thank you to all those who participated in the Discovery PTSA annual Spelling Bee 2020. We are so proud of our little spellers!

We had the highest number of participants this year with 220 kids participating in the preliminaries. 

In our effort to be fair and transparent, spelling tests from the preliminary round will be processed through three rounds of corrections to avoid any incorrect marking. Please note, spelling tests and test word lists are not available to view. 

The list for the 2020 finalists has been announced.  The top spellers from each grade will move onto the finals and each grade level champion will participate in the championship round on February 3rd or 4th (depending on their grade level). More information here.

Volunteer of the Month - January 2020

Volunteer of the Month

NOVILIA PENG

They say it takes a village, and volunteers are our village! Volunteers give so much of their time to Discovery, helping make sure our kids have the best school experience possible. While we can never fully repay our volunteers for all they do, we’ll be selecting a “Volunteer of the Month” to give them much-deserved recognition. When you see a volunteer at school, be sure to thank them! Take a moment to learn more about Novilia.


Used Book Collection

Donate Your Books to Discovery!

Do you have books at home your children have outgrown? The Discovery PTSA is NOW collecting them! 

Please bring your children's books to the Discovery office and place them in the designated blue bin. We will organize, sort and redistribute throughout the school where the need is greatest.
