Discovery Middle School to host orientation

Discovery Middle School will host an orientation session for all incoming seventh graders and new eighth and ninth graders (to District #206) on Wednesday, August 29.

Seventh grade students with green schedules will meet from 3 to 4 p.m. Seventh grade students with blue schedules and any other student new to Discovery School will meet from 4 to 5 p.m. Parents are encouraged to participate with their students.

Parents and students will meet in the gymnasium first for a brief program and will then proceed to their assigned home bases. Except for new students, schedules should be brought to orientation.

Following orientation, Discovery will hold an open house for all students in grades 7-9 from 5 to 7 p.m. New students who have gone through orientation may attend the open house to familiarize themselves with Discovery.

The open house enables students and parents to walk through schedules, buy padlocks, access hallway lockers, put money into lunch accounts, register for athletic activities and briefly meet teachers and staff. Refreshments will be available in the cafeteria.

For more information, contact Discovery School at (320) 762-7900 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
