Fuel Up To Play Assembly!

Fuel Up To Play Assembly:

May 15th Fuel Up to Play 60 Motivational Assembly - featuring the Seattle Seahawks!

As you may know, Discovery’s P.E. Department received a 2012-2013 Fuel up to Play 60 grant to help promote healthy eating and physical activity. By receiving this grant, Discovery, along with a number of other FUTP60 grant recipients in the state of Idaho, was entered into a drawing to receive a motivational assembly with the Seattle Seahawks. And as I’m sure your child has mentioned, Discovery was chosen to receive this assembly!! We are the only school in Idaho to host this event for 2012-2013! However, due to time constraints from the Seahawks’ busy schedule there is just ONE assembly scheduled. With nearly 600 students and staff members in attendance, coupled with our limited gym space, we are asking for your cooperation and understanding that this special assembly is for students only. We would also like to encourage the students to wear Seahawks gear/colors (blue and green) or Discovery Spirit shirts on the 15th.
