A Message from Mrs. Scotch

Dear Stanton Families,

It’s with great pride that I welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. It is an exciting time to be part of an outstanding community of students, parents and teachers at Stanton Elementary School.

Stanton prides itself in being a “Community of Learners” where our students and staff look for opportunities to learn from each other.  We are committed to high academic expectations, mutual respect and social responsibility. The staff at Stanton Elementary has high expectations for all of our students; we have even higher expectations of ourselves. This year, the Stanton Elementary staff will continue to dedicate our focus on improving student learning for all students.  We will continue to work diligently through collaboration to discuss teaching strategies to meet the unique needs of each and every student. We will improve student learning through improved instruction focusing on aligned curriculum, data collection and assessment.  We are committed to finding each student’s skill level, meeting them there and taking them to where they are capable of going in their learning.

Parents and community members are partners in educating Stanton’s students.  We encourage parents and volunteers to become active with our school.  Please consider joining our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  They are extremely vital, providing valuable support for our school through volunteering, sponsoring fun and engaging student activities and more! 

As the building principal, I believe that in order to be successful, we need to partner with you, the families of our students.  We need your support as we ask students to practice reading, writing and mathematics at home. Throughout the year, I look forward to continuing to meet and talk with many of you, as well as learn about your children and family.  If there is anything I can do to assist, or provide answers to questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

We appreciate your continued support.  We invite you to join us in becoming a part of our “Community of Learners.”  Thank you for sharing your child(ren) with us. They are the reason we are here and we are honored to be entrusted with this very important component of their lives. 

Here’s to a great school year…GO CATS!


Shannah Scotch, Principal
