I would like to wish you a Happy November! The First Quarter of the school year is completed and we are into the Second Quarter. All grade levels are working on increasing student achievement in Reading, Math, Writing, Science and Social Studies. Students, in grades 1st - 5th, have completed the first administration of Checkpoint Testing. This testing allows us to see what students have mastered and helps our teachers differentiate their instruction to better meet the needs of all students. If you have not had the opportunity to meet with your child's teacher to discuss your child's strengths and weaknesses, I encourage you to take the opportunity to schedule a conference. If you are not available to come in, a phone conference is a great option.
Our students had a wonderful time at our Storybook Character Parade. Many of you came out to watch the students march across the stage. I thank you for your support of our event. Your overwhelming support of our school and events is what makes Discovery Elementary "A" Great Place to Be! The next fun event will be November 8th when we will be celebrating our Annual Multicultural Family Night. Students have had a wonderful time learning and doing projects related to the country they are studying. It is always a wonderful event and I look forward to see you then. We wish all of you a Happy Veteran’s Day. In celebration of veteran’s, on Friday November 9th, we cordially invite any family member who has or is currently serving our country to come have lunch with their student. Wishing you and your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
Your Proud Principal,
