Discovery Notes

Discovery Middle School

A Note from Mr. Aker

Hello Discovery Families,

It is hard to believe we are now working in the second half of the school year already. The first half had many successes and wonderful things happening... I can hardly wait to see what the second half of the year holds!

The Discovery Notes section is below for you to look at what your students will be working on in their classes over the next month. Since we have entered our second semester, some students have changed classes. Check with your student if they have changed any of their courses so you can look at the descriptions or teacher notes from those new classes!

Below the Discovery Notes is a "Save the Date" message. This year again, on February 18th, we are organizing our "Parent Contact Day" in the following manner:

11:30-5:30- Individual contacts will be made to families from Home Base teachers and deans of students. Remember, if you ever have a question for a specific teacher, please know that you can always contact that teacher or the school, and we will have them connect with you.

6:00-7:30- We are inviting parents and students in for our 2nd annual "Academic Open House." Teachers will be opening their classrooms to give a wide variety of academic information to parents. It may be demonstrations, it may be supports, or many other topics. Please come with your student so they can tell you their story as well!

More information will be coming to you about the Paret Contact Day. We will send a letter that explains the entire day with additional information regarding the Academic Open House (Schedules, topics, etc.) We will send updates via text and email as well!

Thank you, everyone,


Matthew Aker

Discovery Middle School Principal
