It seems like the school year is flying by and the fall festival came and went, but once again thank you to EVERYONE who supported our school at our annual fall festival. We loved seeing smiling faces, full tummies, and community coming together on school grounds. We will be updating our society with the amount raised at an upcoming school board meeting, so stay tuned! 🍂🍁🍃

Our professional development days were scheduled for October 6, January 5, and February 23. However due to sending our teachers to the Montessori Conference in Orlando, Florida this school year, those PD days will be supplemented during that time. This changes our school calendar a bit so we want to notify families of those changes with enough time to plan ahead. Our winter break will start earlier than scheduled on the calendar. The new dates will be from December 18 – Jan 5 and we will also be off on Memorial Day, May 27. We are very excited to have our teachers join the Montessori Conference this school year! We cannot wait to see what new and exiting things they learn from the conference!

The Discovery School prides itself on being a multicultural campus. Today we focused on a very prominent Hispanic tradition and holiday, Día de Los Mu***os. It’s a celebration or fiesta to honor the deceased. Great job with the “ofrenda!” It’s absolutely beautiful!! 💕

Did you know⁉️

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the outdoor environment is a natural extension of the classroom. At The Discovery School, our students are able to build on their classroom knowledge through the sensorial experiences of nature and through constant contact with the outside world! 🌎🍀📚

Friday is NEARLY here and we are so excited to host the Discovery School parents at our annual Ethnic Feast. The students have been working hard on their performances and are excited to showcase their talents and various cultural studies they’ve learned.

If you are attending, please know that it’s a picnic style event. Bring a blanket / picnic blanket or towels to secure your spot. If you plan to bring your own chairs, please be sure to sit in the back of the gym as we do not want anyone to have an obstructed view of the performances.
