A Message from Mrs. Scotch

Dear Stanton Families,

I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Stanton this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well! I am both honored and blessed to be your principal. Our goal at Stanton is to work together to provide our students with a safe and robust learning environment. My vision, as the principal, is to always put kids FIRST; my belief is that all children can learn. As educators, we strive to discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse learning styles. In a collaborative effort, we want children to grow  in every way possible. My hope is that all children will LOVE their school and enjoy our  learning environment, which is positive, safe,  caring and 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 Stanton Elementary greatly appreciates 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 for 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 exhibit behaviors to demonstrate that 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 social distancing and safety protocols are followed.

I encourage you to take a look at our district website in order to take full advantage of the great information provided. Be sure to check the website often for the latest news and updates to our calendar of events.   Please also be sure to check your/your child’s access to all of the avenues of communication that we offer by:

  1. Ensuring that your child(ren) check(s) 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. Also, it is VERY IMPORTANT that their electronic devices are charged nightly before returning to school the next school day!
  2. Ensuring that the school has accurate and up to date phone numbers for our One Call Lists. This is our primary means of mass communicating in the event of inclement weather, important bus updates, and more.
  3. Ensuring that you are checking our communication and applications that are available to you.  Teachers will continue utilizing Class Dojo on a case by case basis; however, to ensure consistency with our communicating, we are transitioning, district-wide, to the use of Remind, which gives us the ability to activate engagement across our school and district. Better engagement has 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
