Celebrate the Gift of Friendship- Discovery School has developed a lasting friendship with many of the children at the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos orphanage.  We would like to extend an invitation for more members of the Discovery community to develop these friendships.  There are two ways to help:

  1. Join the Community Service Club.  Contact Mrs. Agurcia ( for more about this club.
  2. Donate a pair of tennis shoes or socks for to be given to the children at this year's Valentine's friendship party. 

Hearts with the child's name and size are found on the bulletin board on the second floor of the secondary building.  Purchase the shoes or socks and return the item, unwrapped, with the heart tag attached, to Mrs. Agurcia's classroom (Secondary building, Room 7) by Thursday, February 1.

Celebrar el don de la amistad: Discovery School ha desarrollado una amistad duradera con muchos de los niños del orfanato Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. Nos gustaría extender una invitación para que más miembros de la comunidad Discovery desarrollen estas amistades. Hay dos formas de ayudar:

1) Unirse al Club de Servicio Comunitario. Contactar a Ms. Christina Agurcia ( para más información sobre este club.
2) Donar un par de tenis o calcetines para ser entregados a los niños en la fiesta del Amor y la Amistad San Valentín de este año.

Los corazones con el nombre y el tamaño de tenis del niño se encuentran en el boletín de anuncios en el segundo piso del edificio de secundaria. Compre los zapatos o calcetines y entregarlos sin envolver, con la etiqueta del corazón adjunta, a la clase de la Mrs. Agurcia (edificio secundario, salón # 7) antes del jueves 1 de febrero.
