Dear Discovery Families,
Welcome to a new and exciting school year! We are so thankful you chose our school and can’t wait to welcome your child(ren) back through our gates. As you may know, Ms. Arellano is now GESD’s Director for Social and Emotional Learning and Mental Health Services. As principal, she did amazing things for the Discovery Community and I know she will be missed. Our students, staff and families will continue to benefit from Ms. Arellano’s work as she is now able to reach students across our district.
I am proud to be joining the Discovery Family as your new principal! I last served the Glendale American School Community as assistant principal and am committed to the goals and values of the Glendale Elementary School District. Mrs. Smith, our assistant principal, is continuing here at Discovery and is an asset to our campus. Together we are driven to ensure student growth and success both academically and socially. Discovery School has a rich background full of traditions which we look forward to continuing, as well as expanding to further the success of students. Our goal is for teachers and staff to continue working diligently to empower all our students to become successful learners and leaders.
Learning about Covey’s seven habits will support the development of leadership skills within each child.
Habit 1-Be Proactive
Habit 2-Begin with the end in Mind
Habit 3-Put First Things First
Habit 4-Think Win-Win
Habit 5-Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood
Habit 7-Sharpen The Saw
I am honored to support such an outstanding community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time. I am proud to be a Discovery Scorpion.
