Bully Free Starts With Me
Osceola County Schools has elected to celebrate Bullying Prevention Awareness Month during November. Discovery has adopted the National Education Association's theme of
Bully Free: It Starts With Me.
During the first week of December we will have bullying prevention awareness activities designed to promote deep thought, unity, and real change. There will be classroom activities, school-wide activities, and a t-shirt design contest. Details will follow.
Why are we doing this?
• As many as 160,000 students stay home on any given day because they're afraid of being bullied.
• 1 out of 4 teens are bullied.
• Playground statistics - Every 7 minutes a child is bullied.

Power Parent Academy
The Discovery Team is working to create and bring to our community a brand new POWER PARENT ACADEMY. This Family Literacy program is unique in that it will provide learning opportunities for the entire family. Parents come to school four days per week for five hours a day so that they can become partners in their children's education and the family will value the importance of literacy. Early childhood education is provided for those families who need it.
There are 4 components to Family Literacy:
• Adult Education
• English skills, literacy skills, workforce readiness, and GED prep
• Early Childhood Education
• Early Literacy skills and kindergarten readiness
• Workshops topics include: health literacy, financial literacy, discipline, FCAT help, homework help tips, choosing the right book for your children
• PACT Time (Parent & Child Together)
Parents work with their children modeling reading skills and enhancing effective communication.
We want to customize our POWER PARENT ACADEMY to meet the needs of OUR parents and families. If you are interested, please click on the survey link below and answer three brief questions. This will help us build a program specific to our DIS community.
