Important! Sweets for Staff

 

🍪 Sweets for Staff ☕

Discovery PTSA will be hosting ‘Sweets for Staff’ on December 13th for all Discovery staff members. This annual event is a day where we can show them just how much we appreciate what they do for our school community.

PTSA volunteers will assemble boxes of pre-purchased cookies to present to staff, and a coffee company will be hired to serve specialty coffees, teas and hot chocolates.

Due to COVID restrictions families are NOT permitted to bring baked goods to the school, but if you would like to make a monetary donation towards this event, please click here. Your donation will go towards the purchase of cookies, the coffee vendor and any supplementary supplies. If you do not have a free PTSA account, open one here then donate.

Thank you for helping show support and appreciation for our Discovery staff.

Seeking Volunteers for 2021-2022

 

Seeking Volunteers

The programs and events provided to the school by the Discovery PTSA cannot happen without volunteers from our school community. While we don't know what the 2021-2022 school year holds for volunteers opportunities and in-person events, we want to plan for every scenario

If you would like to be included in receiving more information about any of our planned programs or events, please sign up via the link below. You are not committing to help, just to receive more information. If you cannot be present at school, there are still opportunities to help from home, so don't hold back on anything that interests you.

Snoqualmie Tribe Ancestral Lands Movement

National Native American Heritage Month

Snoqualmie Tribe Ancestral Lands Movement

Book Donation to Discovery Library

America is a land of many cultures dating back thousands of years to the original inhabitants of the land. The history and heritage of Indigenous families is honored throughout the year, and especially during November, which has been proclaimed National Native American Heritage Month.

On a local level, we would like to recognize the Snoqualmie Tribe Ancestral Lands Movement. Through education and awareness, individuals can integrate land acknowledgment and respect for the Snoqualmie Tribe into their recreational practices and experiences, helping the Tribe restore and protect their sacred lands. You can learn more here.

Additionally, your Discovery PTSA has donated 32 books to our school library worth $500 on Indigenous/First Nations subjects or authors. It is our way of celebrating these rich traditions and languages, while also providing an opportunity for our students to learn about the immense contributions of Indigenous people. Thank you to Mrs. Gage for helping create this book list and for preparing the books for the shelves. See a photo of the books here.
