Principal's Welcome

Dear Scottie Families,

It is my honor and a pleasure to welcome you to the new school year! I am extremely proud to serve as the Principal of this amazing learning community and to continue to support the students of Scott Elementary! As a school, we will continue to strive for academic excellence and social and emotional well-being for our students while looking through a lens of equity and inclusion. With that said, the Scottie staff are excited to kick this year off in true Scottie style!

I would like to welcome all of our families, whether you are returning to us, are joining us from another school in the district, or have relocated from another city, state, or country. We are excited to share with you all that Scott has to offer and believe you will soon feel as we do, that Scott Elementary is a special place for all children. Our educators, support staff, families, and other education partners are ready to welcome you into the Scottie Family.

Our teachers and staff are eager to meet their students and begin this year’s journey with them. The dedicated staff at Scott has been working tirelessly to finalize classes and schedules, engage in professional learning opportunities, and update our instructional models, class routines, and expectations, all with the goal of fostering academic success, a true sense of connectedness and belonging for our students. Our primary goal is to ensure student proficiency in core academic subjects, so we will continue to refine Tier I instruction, analyze data, conduct observations, and review classwork to guide instruction and intervention. We believe that all of our students can and will succeed. We will work together to create a solid foundation for our students so that they have the opportunity to become self-directed learners, collaborative teammates, critical thinkers, and responsible citizens. 

I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a family to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared to be successful in their endeavors.

Remember It’s Always a Good Day to be a Scottie!
