The goal of our school’s PTO is a fairly simple one – to enrich the lives of every child who attends Discovery Elementary. We do this by providing additional learning opportunities through science, art and music. We do this by engaging each child by organizing after-school events so that they remember that we’re not all about work, and that play is an important component to their education. We do this by encouraging them to participate in extracurricular activities like safety patrol, peace patrol, and student council. Finally, we do this by putting together a team of parent volunteers who not only help these kids in the classroom, but who work tirelessly to put on all of the family-friendly events we have throughout the year.
So how do we do this? We start with those dedicated parent volunteers and the thousands of hours they donate to Discovery students, we add in all the generous contributions from families, friends and local businesses, and before you know it we’re on our way to another successful year.
But we still need your help. The Discovery Elementary PTO is made up of all of us. Yes, you are a member of the PTO even if you didn’t know it. The difference between a good year and a great year is dependent upon the participation of as many of you as possible, and we invite you to join us. Continue visiting this website to see what we’re up to, send us an email and let us know how you’d like to help, purchase some of our awesome spirit wear or make a one-time or recurring donation. Most importantly, ask your children about the programs they’re participating in; chances are, the PTO has something to do with that!
