- ELECTRONIC DEVICES - as part of their school supplies, students are required to bring a laptop or a tablet with a keyboard in order to work in class. The use of cell phones as a working device will no longer be allowed as it not appropriate for typing and it also creates distraction with the use of social media. Laptops and tablets connect through our school’s wifi and allows us to control the child’s content.
- HOLIDAY BASKETS CONTRIBUTION - It is customary at Discovery School for our families to come together towards the holiday season and open their hearts to share with our community. This year, the school is looking at preparing 29 holiday baskets for our maintenance, support, and security staff. We are asking for a family contribution of L150 to be sent before Friday, November 16. Please place your contribution in a sealed envelope with your family name, and send it to school or give it to one of your homeroom teachers. These proceeds will be used to buy staples for the holiday baskets that will be given out before the Holiday break.
- ATTENDANCE - Traffic is difficult for everybody in the city. Please make the necessary arrangements so your child arrives to school before 7:55 am.
- BLOGS – we remind all parents and students to check the blogs every Monday afternoon (preferably) in order to be informed of the week’s content.
- HOMEWORK CALENDAR – is a very useful tool to keep track of homework, quizzes and tests, etc. The homework calendar is located within every blog.
- ENGRADEPRO – check accounts frequently to monitor progress
