Discovery PTA Ice Cream Social

Friday, September 17

6:30-8 PM

 

Explorers and their families are invited to catch up with old friends and meet new ones while enjoying an ice cream treat!

 

Several Covid mitigation measures will be in place to help keep everyone safe while we socialize:

  • Masks are required when not eating and drinking, regardless of vaccination status.
  • We will have two ice cream trucks stationed at opposite ends of the space to reduce crowding.
  • We will have chalk dots on the ground for spacing while you wait, and we are encouraging full use of the campus (both playgrounds, veranda, etc.) so everyone can spread out.
  • We will also set out hand sanitizer. 

Please note: This is an outdoor event. The building will be closed, so there will be no bathroom access.

Access Online Discovery Directory

When you join the PTA, your information will be added to our online directory. You will have access to the directory and can see your child's classmates (as other parents update their info).  The online directory allows you to:

  • Search for other parents who have opted in and sort by class and street. 
  • See who is in your child's class 
  • Room parents can also use the online directory to reach out to parents in the class.  

You can control what information is added (for instance, if you want to share your email but not your phone number, you can set those preferences). 

 

If you attended Discovery last year -- or signed up for an account over the summer -- please use the same login information. 

 

If you are new to Discovery, please create an account.

There will be multiple opportunities to order throughout the school year.
