Good afternoon Discovery family. I hope that all of you are having a terrific weekend. Below are the announcements for this week.

Congratulations to the women's swim team as the performed well at the regional meet on Friday. They will be going to the state meet this week. Good luck ladies.

Congratulations to the Lady Red Devils basketball team on a buzzer beating win against East Burke on Saturday. If they win out this week, they will win the Conference Championship. Good luck ladies.

Our Science Olympiad team competed in their competition on Saturday. They represented the school very well and will find out the results later this week.

Friday February 11th is an optional teacher workday which means there is no school for students.

Monday February 14th is a required workday so there will be no school for students. However, juniors have the opportunity to attend an ACT prep at the school and a pizza lunch will be provided for those who would like it. Other students were sent information about community service opportunities at the before and after school program at North Newton Elementary and Viewmont Elementary. They were also sent information about volunteering opportunities at the Catawba County Animal Services. I encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities.

Mr. Wilkinson and Ms. Propst provided juniors and seniors information about the Apprenticeship Catawba program. I encourage parents to discuss this with their students and contact Matt Wilkinson at or 828-465-0920 if you would like more information.

Here are the Character Awards for this week.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. As always, please feel free to reach out if there is anything we can do for you. Take care.
