Thank you to everyone who helped encourage our students read by supporting our Read-a-Thon. The Read-a-Thon was so successful that we have met our goal to be able to afford adding another ga-ga pit to the Hoover playground, as well as, provide some new playground equipment and fun extras to support our classroom teachers in providing unique learning experiences for our students.

Our student readers logged over 33, 000 minutes of reading in two-weeks! This was our first fundraiser in over two years, and we are so grateful for everyone's support and generosity.

We can't wait to see our students enjoying our new playground equipment!

Notes from the Nurse

This week I completed vision screenings for our 5th graders. If your student requires a more in depth exam, you will receive a letter as well as a list of eye doctors available. If you receive a referral letter, please let me know if your child sees an eye doctor and the results of the exam. Vision can affect learning. It is important that students who need glasses wear them while in school. Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.

Discovery meets everyday that school is in session.

Club Forms have been sent home with students. There are 2 (two) orange copies for each student.

One copy goes in an outside pocket of the yellow take-home folder. The other copy goes home. Thank you for helping with this.

If a student signed up for clubs and didn't get an orange form, he/she didn't get a club. We had very limited space and filled each club to the brim. We did our best for everyone.

Clubs begin next Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 2:55.

After school club questions can be directed to our club coordinators: Anita Harris & Hannah Lafever

For DISCOVERY CLUB questions, please contact Debra Vaught

Elementary Dress Code

Dress code rules are necessary to maintain a positive learning atmosphere. Clothing considered acceptable outside of the school setting is not always acceptable in school.

  • Shoes must be worn. Athletic footwear is preferred for the safety of students on the playground and during physical education classes. Students must have athletic shoes for PE. During the warmer months sandals are permitted only when they have an ankle strap. Flip flops and other backless footwear are not permitted.

  • Clothing and/or accessories that are indecent, unsafe (i.e., no chains), unhealthy, unclean, too brief, or so unusual that it distracts other students or teachers may not be worn. Hair styles must not be considered a distraction to the learning environment (this includes Mohawks, faux hawks, and large spikes).

  • Sleeveless tops are permitted, but no tank tops or spaghetti straps/no large arm hole openings. No abbreviated clothing or layering over abbreviated clothing (halter tops, midriff tops, tube tops, or low necklines) unless the underneath top is totally covered. Shirts and tops must be long enough to be able to tuck into pants and stay tucked in.

  • Skirts, dresses, and shorts must be no more than three inches above the knee. Pajama wear is not allowed unless it is a special theme day. Pants must be worn at the waist and not drag on the floor or be excessively baggy. Holes above the knee are not allowed. Students will not be able to repair clothes on site using tape.

  • Tights/leggings/yoga pants must be accompanied by a fingertip length or longer top or dress.

  • Clothing that is tight, flimsy, torn or ripped to the point of immodesty, or clothing that depicts violence or vulgarity of any kind may not be worn. Clothing and personal possessions with objectionable wording, sexually permissive wording/pictures, satanic symbolism, gang related symbolism, inappropriate pictures, or that which advertises alcohol, tobacco, or drugs are not acceptable.

  • Students are not to wear hats, bandannas, headgear, hoods and/or gloves inside the school building during regular school hours.

  • Sunglasses not medically prescribed are prohibited.

  • Administrative discretion will be the final determination of dress code violations.

Dress Code - continued

If the manner of dress, grooming, or appearance disrupts the normal educational process, necessary steps will be taken to correct the situation. Students in violation of the dress code will be given three options to correct an inappropriate appearance:

Option 1: Use clothes provided by the school

Option 2: Call a parent or guardian to bring a change of clothes

Option 3: 1-day of in-school suspension
