Open House: Thursday, August 26

The PTA will be selling grade level t-shirts outside the main entrance to Discovery on Thursday, August 26. We'll be there from 9-9:30am, so you can catch us before or after your child's Open House visit. Shirts are $10, cash only. We will also have Discovery yard signs available.

Get to know your fellow Discovery parents and celebrate the start of a new school year! After you’ve said goodbye to your Explorer, join us on the Discovery veranda for coffee from 9-9:30am on Monday, August 30. Masks required.

After-school Enrichment

Be on the lookout for information about after-school enrichment opportunities. Offerings and sign-up information will be coming in September, with classes starting at the end of that month.

Save the Date! Ice Cream Social

We will be holding an ice cream social for all Explorers and their families on Friday, September 17 at 6:30-8pm. More information coming soon.

Volunteer with us!

The PTA needs your help! We have several volunteer jobs open, with more to come as the year progresses. Volunteering with the PTA is fun, easy, and a great way to get to know other parents. And we can't host fun events and programs without your help. Check out our website for more information on open positions and email president@discoverypta.org with questions.
