Principal's Message

  Welcome to Discovery Middle School!

Dr. FernandezDear Explorer Families,

I hope everyone had a restful weekend and our students are energized to return to school tomorrow Tuesday.

Just a reminder, Report Cards are still available through the Parent Access Portal. A hard copy will be made available upon request.

We will host Legacy Middle for our first basketball game of the season on Wednesday, Jan. 19th at 5:00 p.m.  Boys play first, followed by the girls.

On Thursday, Jan. 20th our Explorers will have their fourth mental and emotional health lesson. This is in response to The Florida Department of Education approved Rule 6A-1.094121, F.A.C., which requires students in grades 6-12 receive a minimum of five hours of mental and emotional health instruction each year. 

Also, on Thursday, SAC will host their monthly meeting in the Media Center at 4:30 p.m.
The Timber Creek High School guidance counseling team will host a Virtual Informational Q & A Session for incoming 9th graders zoned to them on Thursday, January 20th from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.  School Counselors will be answering questions regarding the course selection process and information pertaining to high school for 2022-23 School Year. 

Parents, reserve your copy of DMS Yearbook. The deadline to purchase your copy is March 21st for $25. Also 8th grade dedications are due Feb. 21st.  For more information, see the flyer in our newsletter. Please check Canvas for the link.

Please check Canvas for continuous updates on your child’s grades and remind your child to charge their laptop each night and to bring both their laptop and charger to school each day.

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