We can't wait to start this school year with you!!!
Dear Discovery Families,
The school year is winding down nicely. Our students are busy completing projects and celebrating all they have learned this year. We wish them well this summer, and look forward, even now, to next September, when they arrive taller and smarter than they are today.
As I reflect upon the year, I am thankful to be working alongside such a committed group of educators here at Discovery. It is surely a privilege. I am also encouraged by the supportive and optimistic community of Issaquah School District.
As is often the case, the end of the school year brings about some changes for our staff. I am sad to share that we are losing some terrific staff members who are off to new schools and new adventures. Help me say thank you, and goodbye, to the following individuals:
Daniel AyotteAbby FergusonRyan HanCarol JacobsLeslie LombardoTeresa MatureShellie WardHailey Woodbury
Each of these teachers will truly be missed, but I must highlight one in particular. Carol Jacobs has taught at Discovery since the school opened in 1991. Most of these years she taught third grade; this last year she taught English Language Learners half time at Discovery and half time at Endeavor. Next year, she will teach ELL full time at Endeavor. We are so appreciative for her many years of dedicated, caring, teaching here at Discovery. We also wish her all the best in the years ahead.
Additionally, Linda Ogden, second grade teacher, is moving to fifth grade. Teaching older grades has been an interest of Mrs. Ogden’s and the time is right for making this move. And finally, Krista Behling, currently at first grade, is moving to second grade next year.
In closing, on behalf of all the Discovery staff, I wish you a safe, and very happy, summer.
Marti Shefveland Principal of Discovery
