Family-Community Resource Center at Discovery Middle School


Family-Community Resource Center logo

The Family-Community Resource Center is here to support students and families in the Discovery community. My job is to help families eliminate barriers to students being successful at Discovery. Some of the ways I can help families and students include backpacks, school supplies, food bags, food boxes, clothes and jackets, connections to community and social service agencies, etc.

There are many fun and exciting activities for students and families through the FCRC. We also have two computers set up in the FCRC for families to have computer and internet access.

Through the FCRC there are many volunteer opportunities for parents, as well as opportunities to donate gently used clothing for our clothes closet. Please stop in and introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting you all!
