Discovery Academy

Children at discover academyDiscovery is an after school enrichment program in science and math for 3rd-5th grade students. Our mission is to awaken, inspire and excite minds through hands-on experiences to inspire a life-long love of learning.

Each school year is made up of two sessions - fall and spring. Each session follows the science TEKS taught in the classroom to reinforce that information with experiments and activities.

Discovery was started with a generous donation from Fran and Bob Keith. Their love of knowledge and children provides commitment to the library to continue their dream.

 

 

 

Fall 2020 Session 2 Oct. 13 - Nov. 3

Earth Science

October is the library’s Earth Science Month, so Discovery Academy session 2, starting October 13, will teach about clouds, trees, land cover, and mosquitos. Students will learn how to be citizen scientists and about the importance of Earth science. Each week will cover a different topic and will include collecting data that will then be sent to NASA to help them conduct research.

In response to COVID-19, Discovery Academy will meet once a week on Tuesdays starting September 15. In order to social distance, each session is limited to ten 3rd-6th grade students. Classes will be held on our newly renovated patio unless there is inclement weather. Each session will be four weeks so more students can participate. After registration reaches 10, additional students will be enrolled in the next available session. Students will ride the school bus to the library. Parents will pick up their students at 5:00 pm on the side that goes to the baseball field. A healthy snack will be provided. There is no charge for Discovery. 

If your student arrives to Discovery sick, you will be called to pick them up. Face coverings will be required. We are sorry to make these changes, but must for everyone’s health. Thank you again for the opportunity and honor to work with your wonderful students.

 

Each session will be four weeks long, every Tuesday from 3:45 - 5:00
Session 1 "Birds, Bees, and Butterflies"- Sep. 15, Sep. 22, Sep. 29, Oct. 6.
Session 2 "Earth Science"- Oct. 13, Oct. 20, Oct. 27, Nov. 3.
