Principal's Message

  Welcome to Discovery Middle School!

Dr. FernandezDear Explorer Families,

Let’s support our Volleyball teams tomorrow at Wedgefield starting at 5:30 p.m. and on Wednesday at home against Avalon MS starting at 4:30 p.m. Boys will play first; followed by the Girls.  Go Discovery!

In our efforts to continue to integrate the arts in the curriculum, we have engaged Emily Smith from Focus 5, Inc. to conduct professional development for our teachers. This year, Mrs. Smith will conduct demonstrations in the classrooms in building a cooperative, collaborative, creative classroom community through drama. She spent two days demonstrating in selected classrooms strategies that will help students self-regulate their behavior, focus and concentrate.  We will be practicing these strategies until Mrs. Smith’s next visit in December. 

Save Wednesday for lunch and dinner at Papa John’s Pizza Spirit Day.  Twenty percent of their sales will come to Discovery.  If ordering online or phone, be sure to give them the code Discovery20.

The School Advisory Council is hosting there monthly meeting this Thursday in the Media Center at 4:30 p.m.

Also, on Thursday, Progress Reports will be available through Family Access.

Parents, if you have not turned in the flu vaccinations consent forms, please do so tomorrow which is the last day to the clinic. 

Please assist your child in keeping up with assignments and checking Canvas for continuous updates on grades.  Also, remind your children to charge their laptops and bring their chargers.

Thank you for your continued support of Discovery Middle as we “Prevail in Excellence.”
