A Message from Mrs. Scotch

Dear Stanton Families,

Welcome back to the 2022-2023 school year! I am both honored and blessed to be your principal.      Our goal at Stanton is to work together to provide students with a safe and rich learning environment. My vision, as the principal, is to always put kids first! My belief is that all kids can learn when given the proper instructional support and guidance. As educators, we must discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse learning styles. In a collaborative effort, we want children to thrive in all ways possible. My hope is that our students will LOVE their school and feel nurtured in a learning environment that is positive, safe and caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.

Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community. It truly does take a village! Education is a joint venture and we greatly appreciate the support you provide for your child(ren) at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals.  I strongly encourage you to be sure to include our 3 school-wide expectations of a positive school culture at home as well, in order to reinforce what we expect of our students while they are at school. Our expectation is that our students demonstrate behaviors that show how WE ARE RESPECTFUL, WE ARE RESPONSIBLE and WE ARE SAFE…because WE ARE EDISON! We value, with equal importance, the health and safety of every student and staff member; therefore, we will be practicing, reinforcing and holding one another accountable to ensure that safety protocols are followed so that everyone remains safe and healthy.

I encourage you to take a look at our district website (, click on the Schools tab and select Stanton Elementary) in order to take full advantage of the great information provided. Please also be sure to take advantage of liking us on our Facebook page by searching Stanton Elementary.

Below are a few helpful tips to ensure communication is received promptly:

  1. Be sure your child(ren) check their email daily! We will be communicating with them regularly through email and will also be accessing our main instructional platform, Google Classroom, for teacher/student instruction and learning.
  2. Please be sure the school has accurate and up to date phone numbers for our One Call and Remind Lists. This is our primary means of mass communicating in the event of inclement weather, important bus updates, and more.
  3. Teachers will continue utilizing Class Dojo on a case by case basis; however, to ensure consistency with our communication, we will also continue to use Remind district-wide, which gives us the ability to activate engagement across our school and district. Better engagement makes a positive impact on student performance, especially when we can reach each family to assist in improving attendance, extend learning beyond the classroom and work with families to bridge learning strategies between school and home.

We are confident you will find that Stanton Elementary School is truly a place where learning is joyful and children feel safe and welcomed. To all of my fellow Wildcats, let’s make it a great year! Go Cats!

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Shannah Scotch, Principal
