A Note From Our Principal
Dear Discovery Isle families,
We feel a mixture of emotions as the academic school year comes to an end. We are so proud to see our Pre-K students finish their last few days in their class, this week, and through the month of June. Many of them have been with us since they were infants, and we truly cherish all the memories. We are also truly excited to observe all of our preschoolers move up to the next stage of learning here at Discovery Isle.
Thanks to the strong partnership between parents and teachers and the support of the curriculum, we have completed a very successful school year. We are extremely grateful to the staff as they are the key component of the children’s success here at Discovery Isle. The communication and collaboration between staff and parents have helped create a strong, consistent environment for our children. Our success would not have been accomplished without the parent’s utmost support and encouragement.
The week of June 28th we will be transitioning the children into their new classrooms. Thursday, July 1st is the first day of the new school year. The first 2 weeks of the new school year will be dedicated to helping the children get familiar with their new teacher, classroom, and routines. It is our goal to help our children have a smooth transition by providing fun and exciting activities and, at the same time, spend time getting to know the children and forming the bond and attachment that will help them feel comfortable and at ease with their new teachers.
Please don’t hesitate to speak to us regarding any special needs or routines regarding your child. Please know that administrators and teachers will always make themselves available to discuss any questions or needs that may come to mind.
Please feel free to reach us by phone, e-mail, Links to home messaging or just stop by the school any time.
We are looking forward to a successful new school year!
Principal, Mrs. Melinda Carvalho and Assistant Principal, Mrs. Jessica Herbers
