School Announcements


  • GENERAL ASSEMBLY – Thank you to those of you who attended and participated in last night’s General Assembly. Thanks, also, to the teachers who remained at school for the Assembly, and to the DPTO for their participation and presentation. Unfortunately, there were not enough parents present to make our required quorum of 1/3 of our families. Therefore, as required by our By-Laws, we have to schedule another General Assembly. That General Assembly will be held onThursday, May 23, 2013, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Cafeteria.

On the Agenda are:

Approval of the Budget

Approval of the school calendar

Election of 3 new Board members (current candidates are Wendy Willemsen, Wendolyn Sanchez, Arnaldo Palma, and Erica Herrera)

Discussion of the Cement Plant that is being built near the school (we will provide Separate denuncia forms for each family to sign. a petition that will be signed by all parents who want to sign it.

Discovery School is parent-owned, and this is your opportunity to make a real difference in the life and future of your child’s school. With your participation and support, we believe we can stop this cement plant. However, without that commitment from all of our families, it will much more difficult to raise the level of awareness and concern about it.

The DPTO is supporting the General Assembly by offering a PIZZA PARTY to the grade who has the highest percentage of attendance from their parents! PLEASE JOIN US AT 6:00 P.M. ON THURSDAY, MAY 23 IN THE CAFETRIA–LET’S AIM FOR A QUORUM OF AT LEAST 2/3 OF OUR FAMILIES (115 FAMILIES).
