"The 12th man has an unparalleled impact on game day."-Pete Carroll
Hello Discovery Community,
On the Seahawk website the 12th man is described as "Some of the most loyal fans in the NFL. In the Northwest we refer to them as the 12th man."
I believe that schools also need loyal fans and supporters. We, the staff and students, at Discovery Elementary, are so fortunate to have support from you, the administration team at district, and from our local community, "our 12th man." These first two weeks we have already seen and felt the impact of the "12th man."
First, the administration building staff does so much work behind the scenes to make our schools run smoothly. We are grateful for their positive energy and the work that they do to ensure that everything in a school runs smoothly.
Before school started, teachers were able to participate in a one week professional development around writing by Teacher’s College-Columbia University. For many teachers it is a dream to be able to go to Teachers’ College for professional development. Thanks to The Issaquah Schools Foundation, Teachers’ College came to us. In addition, ISF has donated a number of backpacks filled with school supplies to ensure that each student has all that they need to get started for the school year. Also, ISF provides each new teacher with new teacher classroom start-up funds. To find out more about ISF click here.
Discovery is very fortunate to have such a strong and supportive PTSA. Many thanks goes to the many parents that greeted our students in the morning and made sure that everyone got on the right bus to go home and helped Kindergarteners input lunch numbers was a huge help. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother first week of school. PTSA also supports our teachers by organizing fundraising for our school, family fun nights, literacy and art enrichment. To find out more about Discovery PTSA click here.
Last, but not least is YOU. Thank you for the support that you are giving your child’s teacher by volunteering in the classroom, cutting out laminated stuff and making sure that your child is here on time ready for the school day. You are making a difference.
Every day I come to Discovery with anticipation and excitement for the school day. I feel so fortunate to work with educators that are so committed to our students, with parents that are so supportive, for the PTSA Board and members, for the many volunteers, and for the Issaquah Schools Foundation. All together this is the "12th Man" for our students. I know that this school year is going to be phenomenal and that together we can make an unparalleled impact for our Discovery students. Have a fabulous weekend!
