Weekly Announcements December 7th

Good afternoon Discovery family. I hope that everyone is doing well. It's hard to believe, but we only have two weeks left in this first semester.

Teacher made final exams have been waived by our school board for this school year so students will only be required to take state EOC and CTE tests this first semester. Biology students will test on Monday December 14th, Math 1 and Math 3 students will test on Tuesday December 15th, and English 2 students will test on Wednesday December 16th. Students enrolled in the Career Management course through Newton-Conover High School will be contact by them as to when they will test. Only students who are testing will attend school on these dates. Everyone else will work remotely.

A survey was sent out on Friday to determine everyone's intentions for second semester. You will only need to complete this survey if you are changing from hybrid to remote or vice versa. If you are staying the same, you do not have to complete the survey.

I hope that everyone has a great week. Let us know if there is anything you need.

Good afternoon Discovery family. I hope that everyone has enjoyed their weekend. Below are the announcements for this week.

Monday November 23rd is an A Day and Tuesday November 24th is a B Day. There is no school for students or staff Wednesday November 25th through Sunday November 29th.

Biology, English 2, Math 1, and Math 3 students will be taking their Case 21 assessments during class on Monday and Tuesday. Remote students will be allowed to take these from home like last time.
