Discovery’s sixth grade students have been learning about photosynthesis with Ms. Forand. They did projects to show what they have been learning about. The projects they came up with included creating board games, songs, puppet shows, plays, and diagrams.

Walk to School Day Friday May 2nd


On Friday the 2nd we will hold our 4th "walk to school day" of 2014.  Please come out and join us in record numbers.  In April we had 202 student and adult participants.  Let's aim for 300 or 400 this May.  Teachers can join in by parking away from school and walking in.  There will be wristbands and pencils for those who participate.  Parents and adults can have a cup of coffee in the cafeteria after the walk and can be driven home if need be.  Since this is the Friday before Vermont Green Up day we will provide gloves and garbage bags for bus leaders so we can collect things we would rather not see on the ground.
