Originally founded in 2009, Northridge Elementary Discovery Booster Club (DBC) is a parent-led support group that works with Discovery families, Discovery teachers and staff, and Northridge administrators to support the learning and growth of the gifted students enrolled in the Discovery Program at Northridge Elementary.
Our mission is three-fold: raising funds to support the purchase of educational curricula and equipment; recruiting and coordinating parent volunteers from the Discovery community to provide support in the classroom; and hosting community events for Discovery students, teachers and families.
We maintain our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status as a chapter of the The Foundation for Douglas County Schools .
All donations to DBC are fully tax-deductible.
Who is part of the DBC?
All parents and legal guardians of all NRE Discovery students are automatically members of NRE DBC. Our members also include Discovery Teachers and the Principal and Assistant Principal at Northridge Elementary.
What is the DBC Board?
The DBC Board consist of five (5) parents or legal guardians of currently enrolled Discovery students. The DBC Board meets every month and is responsible for guiding and managing DBC activities throughout the school year. Nominations and elections to the DBC Board are held in April every year.
