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.
