Gratitude Wall

Gratitude Wall: Send a Message 

Our Discovery teachers, specialists and support staff are giving us their best during these unprecedented times.
 
And while we are all very busy, and our days are filled with unique challenges, taking a few moments out of your day to express gratitude can make someone’s day.
 
With this in mind, your Discovery PTSA has created a Gratitude Wall in hopes that you’ll share words of thankfulness, gratefulness and kindness about the Discovery staff members that are making a positive impact on your student.
 
Post messages as often as you’d like, for as many staff members as you can. The wall will be available for the entire school year, so come back and post often.
 
This small act of kindness will go a long way!

Book Donation for 2020-2021

Supporting Civics Education with Book Donation

Voting and civic engagement is an important part of our community and country. We hope to educate our future voters by teaching them about how to be an engaged citizen and to effect change.

For the 2020-2021 school year, the PTSA has donated $500 worth of books supporting this idea. Mrs. Gage has been sharing the books with every class. See our social media pages to see some of the available titles.


Our Mission

Our Mission to Support Diversity

The mission of the Discovery PTSA is to advocate, support and enrich our students with educational programs and community building activities in partnership with teachers, staff, parents and the local community. Below are our statements in support of our diverse community:

3/19/2021: The Discovery Elementary PTSA stands in solidarity with our Asian and Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. There is absolutely no room for hate and our PTSA’s mission to advocate, support and enrich our students extends far beyond the classroom. We will continue to not only speak up to combat intolerance, but ensure our students have access to resources and materials to further support diversity and inclusion. 

Updated 10/28/2020: Our support is behind Black Lives Matter, both with our Black students, and our community at large. One of our first steps of support has been to donate $500 worth of books written by Black authors to our Discovery library during the 2019-2020 school year and $280 in the 2020-2021 school year.

Please feel free to share ideas for future efforts to show support. Email us.
