To support our district's positive behavior emphasis, Discovery recently launched a Student Ambassador Program. Fifth grade students interested in this new leadership opportunity filled out an application and were selected to help with many important tasks around the school, such as putting up and taking down the flag, returning recess equipment, assisting Kindergarten and 1st grade students at lunch, greeting students in the morning, and giving new student tours of the school. At present, almost 50 of our 5th graders are helping Discovery in this important role. Way to go!
What is STEM? Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are the curricular subjects collectively known as STEM. At Discovery Elementary, we are committed to preparing our students for academic challenges through creative problem solving, mathematical vigor, engineering practices, and scientific exploration. In keeping with these values, Discovery's annual Science Fair will now be called STEM Fair, and it will be held this year on March 21st.
