DISCOVERY Community Partnerships

- Inspiring our Explorers to become agents of change within their own community

 

Hands-on, meaningful service opportunities for students, parents and staff are available through structured partnerships and collaborations within the Arlington community. 


Barcroft Partnership

 

Our community extends beyond the walls of Discovery. Our partnership with Barcroft gives us an opportunity to connect with kids and families through service, games and learning. We’re excited to launch in person collaboration with Barcroft for the first time this year!

 

Family Strategy Gaming at the Central Library - December 11, 2022 1PM– Arlington Public Library is hosting us Family Strategy Gaming at the Central Library!  Discovery students and Barcroft students should wear their grade level shirt to find friends.

 

Earth Day and Share the Love - Discovery will invite Barcroft families to share the love in February.  And Barcroft is inviting Discovery to one of their events.  Most likely, we’ll get to join them for a park/river cleanup  to celebrate earth day.

 

Young Playwrights Theater –Offers  extra curricular activities  for students interested scriptwriting and acting as a form of self-expression.  Barcroft and Discovery hope to start a program in Q1 2023 so the schools can perform for each other

 

Art and Community - Keep your eyes out for an opportunity to participate in a collaborative art project with Barcroft in December!  Students from both schools will complete a small and independent craft project at home which will become one artpiece we’ll share between the schools.
