Discovery has an active Diversity and Inclusion committee that is committed to the following mission statement: Discovery will strive to celebrate, honor, and uplift diverse identities, experiences, and beliefs. We will build cultural competencies and foster brave conversations equipped with understanding. The Discovery community will be curious, respectful, and welcoming.

 

Some of our past events and efforts to support our mission include:

  • World Heritage Night

  • Diversity Movie Nights

  • Black History Month Celebrations

  • Creation of a common reading space with diverse books

  • Providing diverse literature to classroom libraries

  • Curating schoolwide displays 

  • Creating monthly resources for classroom teachers to celebrate and honor the diverse experiences of our students

 

We value the diverse lived experiences of our Discovery community. We are looking to continue our efforts this school year, and encourage the support of our families and caregivers. If you are interested in contributing to the work of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee, please contact Tia Alfred at Tia4Diversity@gmail.com. Opportunities for involvement will be shared often through the school and PTA newsletters.
