Another Exciting DCS School Year Launched!

There is nothing so exciting as the start of a new school year, and there was certainly joy in the air on August 18 as the 2014-15 school year got underway at Discovery Charter School—our fourth since opening our doors in 2011.  New uniforms, big smiles, proud parents and teacher excitement were the order of the day, as 10 school buses crowded the loop and DCS stepped off to a new chapter in their school careers.

This is the second school year Discovery students have enjoyed their surroundings at their beautiful school building on Hoover Drive in the town of Greece.  Everyone who walked through the doors was in awe at the sparkling facility that is home to DCS students every day; it’s an environment which is conducive to learning, and is the kind of place Discovery students deserve.

A picture is worth a thousand words—that’s why we try to capture as many images in the moment at the start of every DCS school year:

There were plenty of friends of Discovery on hand when students arrived.  DCS Trustee Daniel Aureli was among them.  “The day starts with watching those school buses arrive,” said Aureli.  “I was, again, just numb as I stood and watched all of our kids arrive with gigantic smiles read for another great year!”  A DCS founder, Aureli hasn’t missed a first day of school at Discovery since the beginning!

This year, 40 students fill fifth grade at DCS. This is an important milestone as they set an example as the most seasoned students in the building, and move toward being Discovery’s first graduating class next school year.
