We're all about
Strengthening Families, Building Character, and Improving Lives . . .
Supporting our schools and education
is a GREAT place to start!
There are 4 main areas where we can create a positive impact for your school:
Help facilitate better communication with parents
Help increase business and community engagement with the school
Educate parents about the importance of parent involvement in schools
Reward Outstanding Teachers
There are also 4 important ways we can help your parent organization:
Facilitate better communication with parents
Support the Arts and Learning: PTA Reflections program and Discovery Awards
1. Fundraisers and Directing Funding to the School or PTA/PTO
The Challenge: Schools and their parent organizations are constantly in need of additional funding and resources.
Discovery Scavenger Hunt Fundraisers - a new and unique way to raise funds that engages families, provides flexibility, and is SUPER FUN!
Discovery Photo Booth Fundraisers - a new and unique way to raise funds that provides families with a beautiful family photo memento
My Discovery Destination! can assist businesses in re-directing a portion of their marketing dollars into the school with virtually no extra effort on the part of the school or Adventure Partner. When associated with a school, our Adventure Partners have an opportunity to have their membership fees support the school(s) of their choice.
2. Help Facilitate Better Communication with Parents
The Challenge: Many times the information schools and parent organizations send home to parents does not make it to them. Flyers get lost in the bottom of backpacks, emails get deleted without getting opened, and phone calls get missed or hung up on.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can help facilitate better communication between schools and parents by
Providing the Seasons of Service App
Providing access to the facebook communities
Depending on school needs and preferences, this can be done in the general groups or in a specific, school-only format.
3. Help Increase Business and Community Engagement
The Challenge: Schools want businesses and the community to be engaged with the school, and businesses want to support education in their communities. Too often, however, time limitations prevent these important connections from happening.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can help establish these important collaborations between the schools and the community, both businesses and organizations, in a way that benefits everyone.
Include small home-based businesses of parents in the school, as well as mid-size and large businesses.
4. Educate Parents About the Importance of Parent Involvement in Schools
The Challenge: Many parents don't understand how important it is for them to be involved in their child's education.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can educate parents by providing bite-size bits of information on a regular basis to help parents learn about and understand the importance of parent involvement in their child's education. These 'bits' are delivered in a space where parents are already watching and involved to ensure that they see the valuable information.
Through the community pages and other media platforms, where virtually every family is linked in, we have the opportunity to promote parent involvement and other key issues in bite-size snippets that will reach parents even if they choose not to delve deeper.
