2015-16 DKE PTA Committee Sign-ups 

Our PTA Board consists of a very diverse group of men and women. We have several openings and are always looking for supportive individuals. In addition to board positions, we have many committee positions for the 2015-16 school year. Please contact our President if you are interested in Volunteering.

 


Please contact Michele Stearns at jmstearns@mac.com for more information.

Thank you!

We are looking for new SAC Members for next year.
As each school year closes and a new year begins there is a need to reorganize the School Advisory Council.   We will be looking for new SAC members to join us as we make important decisions about the education of our children next year. 

What is the SAC?
Each school in The School District of Palm Beach County has a School Advisory Council (SAC).  The SAC is the governing body for the school and is responsible for the development and monitoring of the School Improvement Plan (SIP).  The SAC is also responsible for helping to make other important decisions for our students and school. 
As a member of a School Advisory Council, you are a very important person. You and your fellow council members are entrusted with the improvement of our school.

When does the SAC Meet?
Our meetings for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year will take place once a month at 2:30.  Our goal is to have at least one parent member
representing each grade level, K-5.  

How Can I Join?
Stop by the main office or send in a note to your child's teacher, stating that you would like to join SAC before the end of the year.


Kindergarten & New DKE Parent Boo Hoo/Yahoo Breakfast!  

SOME OF US ARE CRYING, TEARY-EYED AND BLUE

SOME OF US ARE CHEERING, "I'M GLAD THE SUMMER'S THROUGH!"

WHATEVER MOOD YOU'RE FEELING, STOP BY AND STAY AWHILE

WE'LL BE HERE TO GREET YOU WITH COFFEE AND A SMILE!

Please join us on Friday, August 21 at 8:15 (Cafeteria) to wipe away your tears and meet other Discovery Key parents who are celebrating this big milestone. We also want to extend this invitation to families new to our school!

At this time, you will meet new friends and learn about Discovery Key and all the great ways for you to get involved in your child's education. More than 30 years of research has proven that children do better when their parents are involved both at home and in school: grades are higher, test scores rise, self-esteem grows, and schools improve. Administrations and PTA Board members will be there to answer all your questions.  

Kindly RSVP at your earliest convenience!

The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

PTA Values

Collaboration: We work in partnership with a wide array of individuals and organizations to accomplish our agreed-upon goals.

Commitment: We are dedicated to promoting children's health, well-being, and educational success through strong parent, family, and community involvement.

Accountability: We acknowledge our obligations. We deliver on our promises.

Respect: We value our colleagues and ourselves. We expect the same high quality of effort and thought from ourselves as we do from others.

Inclusivity: We invite the stranger and welcome the newcomer. We value and seek input from as wide a spectrum of viewpoints and experiences as possible.

Integrity: We act consistently with our beliefs. When we err, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make amends.

Nonsectarian Policy

PTA welcomes into membership people representing a diversity of cultures, ethnic backgrounds, and political and religious beliefs. The purposes of the PTA acknowledge the importance of a spiritual life in the development of children and youth. As an association, PTA has the right to offer inspirational messages to open or close its meetings, but such messages by PTA leaders or invited religious leaders should be inspirational rather than sectarian, recognizing that in this pluralistic nation not all members share the same beliefs. Poetry, quotations from great men and women, uplifting anecdotes, and moments of quiet meditation can be used.

Diversity and Inclusion Policy

PTAs everywhere must understand and embrace the uniqueness of all individuals, appreciating that each contributes a diversity of views, experiences, cultural heritage/traditions, skills/abilities, values and preferences. When PTAs respect differences yet acknowledge shared commonalities uniting their communities, and then develop meaningful priorities based upon their knowledge, they genuinely represent their communities. When PTAs represent their communities, they gain strength and effectiveness through increased volunteer and resource support.

The recognition of diversity within organizations is valuing differences and similarities in people through actions and accountability. These differences and similarities include age, ethnicity, language and culture, economic status, educational background, gender, geographic location, marital status, mental ability, national origin, organizational position and tenure, parental status, physical ability, political philosophy, race, religion, sexual orientation, and work experience.

Therefore PTAs at every level must:

  • Openly assess beliefs and practices to assure inclusiveness and guard against discrimination;
  • Make every effort to create a PTA board and membership that is inclusive and reflective of its community;
  • Encourage that all PTA activities at the school be planned by a committee which is representative of the population
