Principal's Message

Greeting Discovery Dragons Family!

Welcome to a new school year! At Discovery our belief is “Our Kids Can…Our Kids Did…Our Kids Will Evolve Into Greatness!” We live that belief every day as our teachers, staff, families, and administrators work together to provide the best educational opportunities for our students.

We are a mid-size elementary school in Volusia County by serving an average of 650 students. Our current 3-Year-Old through 5th Grade academic programs include general education and exceptional student education (mild varying exceptionalities, autism spectrum disorder, and pre-kindergarten). We also service two VPK units. One being blended with general education students and students with disabilities and the other is a DUAL Language program where our students learn to read, write, and speak in BOTH English and Spanish.

Our goal is to educate the whole child, and when the school day is over our students do not stop learning. Our children can participate in a wide variety of after-school activities, including clubs that focus on STEM, healthy lifestyles, the arts, and technology. We also offer tutoring opportunities for students who need additional support.

We value and appreciate our partnership between your household, our community, and our school. We are always looking for volunteers and if you are interested, we would welcome you to our campus whenever you are available. Volunteers applications are available online or you can reach out to our office for more information.

Please be sure to thoroughly review the items in your child's take-home folder to acquaint yourself with various announcements and required paperwork for the start of the school year. We also ask for you to follow us on one or more of our multiple social media sites. We do send paper announcements home for all our events and ongoings, but we do post them directly to those sites as well. Links to those sites are available below.

I am overjoyed to have the opportunity to support your child through his or her next educational chapter and look forward to another successful school year here at Discovery Elementary!
