Welcome to the Parent Involvement Adventure!
Everything My Discovery Destination! does is about bringing families together to learn, grow, and experience life together in positive, character building ways. Completing the 4 simple steps in this Adventure will put the 'PTA' designation on your membership card so you are qualified for savings and benefits on fun family experiences throughout the state all year long.
It takes less than 5-minutes (usually about 3!) and will get you set-up to not only be ready to be an involved parent throughout the school year, but will also qualify you to participate in the 3 My Discovery Destination! membership drive events in September, November, and January . . . and to enjoy Member Perks all year long!
Complete these 4 simple steps in order:
1) Join your local My Discovery Destination! Facebook community
You can find the closest community to you HERE. If you do not have a Facebook account, you will receive instructions via email about how to find information on upcoming events.
2) Join your local PTA! (OR complete the Parent Engagement form).
If you homeschool or go to a school that doesn't have a PTA, complete THIS FORM to let us know.
3) Register as as a My Discovery Destination! Family (Totally FREE!).
This will provide you with a My Discovery Destination! digital membership card.
Once you have registered you will always be able to access your membership card by going to https://mydiscoverydestination.com/membership-card/. If that doesn't work for you, you aren't logged in. There are several links to the login page in the top menu, but the easiest to find is probably the BIG Orange button on the bottom of every page! We tried to make it nice and easy for you to find!
**NOTE** After registering you will be re-directed to a page that will help you make sure you know how to log back in if you get logged out. Step #3 on that page is the same as Step #4 on this page-- connecting your PTA status. It will bring you right back to this page to finish up. If you want to return to that page after completing this Adventure you can always find it HERE.
4) Link your PTA membership to your digital membership card for easy, convenient access.
Click on the orange 'COMPLETE BASIC' button below to record completion of this Adventure. This will update your membership card to make you eligible for FREE family experiences and all of the other great benefits we have in store for PTA Members and involved parents! (Find the 'COMPLETE BASIC' button below - right under the membership card)
√ When recording completion of this event keep in mind that completing these 4 steps IS the 'Adventure'.
√ When it requests a photo you can upload anything that represents you being an involved parent!
√ You only need to complete the Adventure ONE TIME to connect your PTA membership to your card. We recommend for this Adventure that you complete it under the 'FAMILY NAME'.
√ **IMPORTANT** If you don't see an orange button below (right below the membership card and above the 'Photo Location') you are not logged in. You can log in at https://mydiscoverydestination.com/wp-login.php after completing step #3. Once you have recorded the Adventure, your membership card will automatically indicate your eligibility to participate in these special membership drive events.
This is what your digital membership card will look like once you have completed the above steps. Note the 'PTA' in the upper right hand corner. This is what makes you eligible for PTA Perks and benefits.
