PTA Meeting Schedule
May 1, 2018 - Agenda
Please join us to hear an update from Dr. Russo about the new Profile of a Graduate, review the PTA Budget 2018-2019, discuss the Elementary School Planning Initiative, and receive an update on shades for Discovery's playgrounds.
Please join us for our April PTA meeting where we will provide PTA Budget, APS Budget, and Redistricting updates.
Please join us for our February PTA meeting to hear from the administration about some exciting Responsive Classroom news. In late January, a Responsive Classroom consultant visited and walked through our classrooms and common spaces. We are excited to share her data and her recommended next steps at our February PTA meeting. In addition, we will share some of the ways Discovery teachers incorporate Responsive Classroom strategies in academics and social emotional lessons. We hope you leave the meeting understanding why the Responsive Classroom approach thrives in so many APS schools.
The PTA will also discuss upcoming events and have a mid-year review of the budget with some new updates.
