Principal's Message

Welcome to Scott Avenue School! It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. I look forward to working with the fantastic Scott Avenue students, parents, and dedicated staff. I am excited for the 2019-2020 school year where we will continue our “Make Your Mark At Scott” theme! This year we will highlight our theme through our monthly character traits of friendship, respect, responsibility, gratitude, generosity, acceptance, trustworthiness, self-discipline, cooperation, perseverance, and caring.


At Scott Avenue, our teachers are committed to academic excellence and have high expectations of our students. This year, our focus will be on continuing to find new ways to engage our students learning through the 5 C’s of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, and community so they will be equipped as 21st Century learners who are responsible, confident role models. Our dedicated staff are constantly growing and finding new ways to help our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally.  Scott Avenue has incredibly supportive parents and community. When we all work together collaboratively our students thrive!


Scott Avenue is going “green”! To assist in reducing our use of paper, we will provide communication electronically and through our Aeries Communication messaging system through Parent Portal whenever possible. Our website is designed to provide you with important information about our school and the East Whittier City School District. Please check back regularly for new and updated information. The Family Resources section of our website contains information about our PTA, after school programs, and a link to our Parent/Student Handbook. Many questions you might have may be answered in the Parent/Student Handbook or in other documents located on our website. If you would like hard copies of any of the documents, please stop by the office to place your request.


I wish everyone a fantastic school year!


Mrs. Rytky
