Upcoming Events

I hope everyone is having an amazing year this year.  We have a lot of activities coming up that I wanted to make sure that people know about. 
1. Picture Day Sep 28.  Retake Day November 14.

2. Fall PTA Carnival October 6th.  This is our carnival that has been at the end of October previously.  We have decided to hold it earlier this year to not have so many scheduling conflicts. 
If we have $300 donated to the carnival we will make the principal into a hot dog!  Students will get to squirt him with ketchup and mustard at the carnival. 

3. Cache Valley Direct books for sale at Discovery.  Students will be sent home with a book full of coupons.  If you would like to keep it, just send $25 back to the school.  If you do not want it, just send it back.  Checks should be payable to Discovery Elementary.  Several businesses in Brigham City are being included in the book and they are looking to add more this upcoming year.  Look for more information about it.  If we can sell 500 books we w…

Shout Outs!

Here are some of the WONDERFUL things said about school employees:

"Only one week of school has gone by, but my daughter has gone on and on over how much she enjoys her teacher, Mrs. Rupper! Seeing as this is her first year teaching, this makes me especially happy. I also really loved the "parent homework" she had for us at back to school night..makes me feel that she really cares about each student's individual needs and personalities. Thank you, Mrs.Rupper! You're doing great!"

"(Mrs. Robinette) Went the extra mile by giving her time to learn about her incoming students and helping her students and parents adjust to first grade."

"Mrs. Gunnell made this first week of school a good experience for my nervous little one. She had a welcoming, fun personality that made my daughter feel excited about school. Words can never express the gratitude I have for amazing teachers who look for the best in my children and help them be the best version of t…

Fantastic Employees

Before coming to Discovery I was Principal at Discovery Elementary School in Vernal, UT.  I spoke with the Superintendent there about my families need to move back to Northern Utah.  He attempted to talk me out of it and told me, "You will never work with a staff as good as the staff at Discovery in your career."  I can tell you that he was never more right, while being so wrong.  The Staff at OUR Discovery Elementary is amazing.  I see so much good here.  We have happy positive people in every corner who always believe that any assignment is possible.  As I look at the teachers, and the staff at our school I am so impressed, and hear messages from parents all the time about how great everyone here is, and I wanted to create a forum to celebrate these wonderful people.  Let's celebrate the greatness in our school!

Ready for School?

Discovery Community:
I am very excited for this upcoming school year.  We are all ready to go after our recent Open House.  The teachers had a lot of fun, and we hope that the nervous students come ready for the school year.  I hope that you all are ready as well.  The start of the year is always a very exciting time for parents.  I wanted to take a moment and give a HUGE thank you to our secretary Sandy Sharp.  Sandy is always happy and helpful to parents, students and teachers.  She looks for the best in every situation, and is a major inspiration to those of us that work closely with her.  Due to some personal issues she has had to take a few days off this summer, but has approached every issue with a positive happy outlook.  If some of your phone calls this summer have gone unanswered, we apologize, please be understanding as we start this school year.  
We would love some feedback about times for our Open House.   https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd7dWaHCFQdMmNKIdF-YyZJJHw…

Parents and Students, I am so excited to see everyone again as the new school year starts.  The beginning of the school year is a wonderful time for us to Begin with the End in Mind.  Every year I see students start out strong and work hard all year to achieve their goals.  That is so neat to see.  We hope to help all of you reach your goals whether they are academic, social, or personal.  Discovery Elementary will be using the “Road to Success” website for the 2017-2018 school year to help track reading minutes again.  Last year they changed the website and it was not useable for our teachers.  We believe that they have fixed all of the bugs and it should work well.  Information will be sent home the first week of school for each child to log in.  www.rtsutah.com We will also continue our reading minute clubs with rewards for students that reach the milesto…
