Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Scott Avenue School! I look forward to our continued partnership in providing our Scotties with the best elementary school experience. If your family is new to Scott Avenue, I extend a warm welcome from the Scotty Family and look forward to meeting you in person.
Our theme for this year is Better Together! More than ever, as we start the year off in 100% distance learning, we need to work together so staff, students and our community are supported in this new teaching and learning environment. Like a puzzle, when all the pieces fit together with our teachers, support staff, students, and community, we are better. We need to continue to find ways to connect with our staff, with our students, and with our community while keeping our school spirit alive. In addition, we need to encourage our students to stay connected with each other because each student and class is Better Together. Follow us on social media to see and share how our Scotties are #bettertogether this year and see how we show our #scottypride.
This school year, we will also be launching PBIS and teaching our students the expected behaviors across all school settings, including the expectations during distance learning. We will kick things off by teaching our students that Scotties always B.A.R.K. (#scottiesalwaysBARK)!
In preparation for our return to school, please keep informed and visit the EWCSD 2020-21 Plan Website frequently, and read all Aeries Communications messages as the most current information and any changes will be communicated as soon as possible through Aeries. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get ready for a school year filled with adventure and experiences like no other! I am confident that we will be Better Together through the challenges that lie ahead because we are #scottystrong.
