The Spark! – August 2019

A Note From The Director
Dear Parents,
We are going into our final week of camp and beginning our preparations for Fall. We have had a wonderful summer meeting many new children and having some of our regular students as here with us as well. We are really looking forward to the Fall Semester and seeing all of our students back for classes.
August is always a time of transition and often we have to say goodbye to teachers that move on. Coach Cristian who has been with Discovery for four years has taken a Gym Director job at a gym on Long Island. Cristian had the amazing capacity to work with children of all ages. I always enjoyed the time I helped him out in the age 3/4 gym classes. He was instrumental in helping our USAIGC Team grow and progress over these last few years. He will be missed and we wish him luck in his new job. 
We are also saying goodbye to early childhood teacher, Jen Katz. Jen will also be moving on to a full time teacher position. She has worked with us three years and her creative art ideas brought a spark to the AOMO, OMO and Art classrooms. It was a pleasure working with her and I always enjoyed visiting her organized and well thought out classroom. She will also be missed. 
I hope everyone enjoys the last couple weeks of summer. We will see you in September. 
Warm Wishes,
Katie Kheel
