UPCOMING EVENTS:


On April 22, Discovery will be hosting our annual World Heritage Night! This event is a chance for the entire Discovery community to come together, learn from each other, and celebrate our cultural diversity.

 
There will be two ways to experience the event:
 
1) LIVE channels on Teams from that will have real-time showcases and demonstrations, hosted on April 22, from 6-7:30 (think performances, cooking demonstrations, and other live presentations)
 
2) VIRTUAL MUSEUM filled with student and teacher submitted photographs, art, and video that explain parts of their heritage. These can be accessed and explored at any time starting the night of the event.
 
The success of this event is determined by community participation! There are two ways families can offer help and participate:
 
1) Volunteer to host a LIVE channel (20-30 min) to showcase a component of your culture. (We will walk you through the easy tech setup!) Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0849aaa829a3f58-2021
 
2) Submit something to be included in our Virtual Museum! Submissions must be uploaded by Monday, April 12. Sign up here! https://docs.google.com/.../1FAIpQLSf7eYgc9WTzR2.../viewform
 
If you are still wondering how to participate, please contact Ms. Coulouris at angelique.coulouris@apsva.us.

CALLING ALL GARDENERS!

 

The Eco Action club is planning for our Earth Day event on April 24th. We need help identifying what types of plants we should purchase to grow in the vegetable garden, kindergarten boxes and near the front of the school. If someone has expertise that can guide us we would greatly apricate it. We can meet in person next week or we can virtually meet if that is more convenient.  Thank you for your help!

Dear Discovery Families,

 

Thank you for visiting our PTA website. Please explore all of the information contained in this site to learn about the PTA and how parents can get involved and stay informed. This website provides current PTA contacts, dates, forms and descriptions of the programs sponsored by the PTA.

 

The PTA's goal is to enrich the environment for our children, families and community. It takes many volunteers to make that happen and parent volunteers are always necessary and welcome. Check with this website often to review the many volunteer opportunities. 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions. We will do our best to keep you updated with what is happening in our PTA, our school and in our community. I look forward to working with you again this year.


Cheers,

Adam Simkin, PTA President


Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!
