Welcome to the Orange Room

Looking Back…

We have had a lot of fun discovery and learning about the “Fun of Fall”.  We have done some fun science experiments, and the children have really enjoyed exploring the Fall objects at the science table.

Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents that joined us for our pumpkin picking field trip.  The children enjoyed looking at all of the pictures I took, and we wrote about it in our journals.

We went on a Fall walk recently to admire the beauty around us and collect some nature souvenirs.

What’s New?

Discovery School is really excited to start implementing a new curriculum called Creative Curriculum.  Based on your children’s interest and excitement of one of our fine motor activities using tubes and marbles, we will start an in depth “study” of Tubes and Tunnels.  If you have any materials readily available at home we would appreciate borrowing them as soon as possible.


Orange Team

Ms. Dannette graduated from SIUE with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education.  She taught 5th grade for 3 years before starting a family.  All three of her children are Discovery School graduates. She started teaching at Discovery as a substitute in 2014 when her youngest child was in her second year at Discovery.  She is excited to be in a classroom and really enjoys watching the children learn through plan and hands on experiences.
