Nominations will still be accepted the day of the General Assembly, as specified in our by-laws.
The reward of an “ice cream day” will be offered to the elementary and secondary group with best attendance resulting in a quorum.
ART EXHIBIT AND MUSIC PERFORMANCES – Also on Saturday we will be having our annual Art Exhibit.
CHILD SUPERVISED ACTIVITIES FOR THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY – In order to help our parents attend the General Assembly, the school is providing supervised activities in the Early Childhood area for those parents who would like to bring their children to school. There will be movies, arts & crafts, board games and word games available for those who find child care on Saturday a difficulty!

BRICKZ4KIDS – The new module on Space Explorations begins on Monday, May 9. This module will last 4 weeks!

DISCOVERY IDOL – Start preparing your presentation for our annual talent show! Auditions will take place during lunch recess in the music room on May 11 and 12.  

RECYCLING CHALLENGE:  Students keep bringing in your recyclable materials (newspapers, magazines, notebooks, paper board boxes, cardboard, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles) for the recycling challenge given by Arca de Esperanzas.  Remember that juice and milk boxes and Pringles-type cans cannot be recycled due to being a pressed mixture of aluminum, plastic, and paper.   Thank you for continuing to support environmental awareness.  Class that meet their challenge of bringing 10 lbs per student will earn a cookie party!

SUMMER CAMPS AT DISCOVERY SCHOOL  - Just like last year, there will be two summer camps in the month of June. Discovery Zone 7 will be a fun, artistic and entertaining camp for children 3 to 9 years old. There will also be a reinforcement camp for reading, writing and French for students in grades K-2. Both camps will run from June 13 to July 1, with the same schedule (8:00 a.m. to 12:00). Transportation is available at a small additional cost.
