From Ms. Haleigh

Hello everyone!

I'd like to welcome you all to the Discovery Center for the 2021-2022 school year! This year, we'll focus not only on the library and reading but also STEM activities, video production, and design challenges. 

My goal is to engage students and their families with experiential learning. To quote Benjamin Franklin, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

Let's get started!

Ms. Haleigh
