Channel 13 visits DCS
DISCOVERY CHARTER SCHOOL received a visit from Beth Fisher of Channel 13 News last week all because Cynthia Oyarce and Nicholas Kaehler were inspired by a story that aired on Channel 13 about recycling. Cynthia and Nicholas reached out to channel 13 for help in creating a recycling program for Discovery. This turned into a visit from Danielle Basson of Simple Enviromental Services Group and a detailed plan for recycling. From there Cynthia and Nicholas placed labeled recycling bins in each classroom and inspired their fellow students to make a difference and recycle!

Your donation of non-perishable food items help provide meals for the needy, 40% of which are children.
