THANKSGIVING CLASS CELEBRATION – The date has changed to Friday, November 22. The Cafeteria order forms along with payment are now due by November 15.
FROM THE SCHOOL’S CAFETERIA – Please visit the Cafeteria blog http://discoverycafeteria.blogspot.com/for information on the delicious Pecan, Apple and Pumpkin pies that can be ordered for your Thanksgiving celebrations. The cafeteria is also offering a meal for the classroom festivities at a very attractive price!
Discovery School will be closed on Monday, November 25, 2013
in order to keep our students and staff safe and to enable us to assess the situation and make a measured decision for the remainder of the week.
DONATIONS NEEDED: Please remember to send in cereal boxes for “Ya Tengo Donde Escribir” between now and November 20. The grade that brought the most boxes will be awarded a pizza party or ice cream party! Please help us help those in need!
PASSING GRADE ACCORDING TO THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION – We would like to remind parents that the passing grade for the Ministry is 70%. Therefore, your child needs to score at least 70% in each subject in order to avoid coming to recuperation exam/s, which are now required at the end of every quarter. The final grade for the quarter is an average of the failing grade and the recup grade. We encourage you to check blogs and ENGRADE on a weekly basis, and to keep in close communication with teachers.
STUDY SKILLS WORKSHOPS – To help improve students’ overall academic performance we are offering the following mandatory Study Skills Workshops in the Library:
- Middle School (grades 6-8): Wednesday, November 13, from 8:00-9:40 a.m.
- High School (grades 9-12): Wednesday, November, 13 from 10:00-11:40 a.m.
These workshops are geared to students in particular. On a later date we will offer workshops that are more focused on parental support at home.
