A Message from Mrs. Scotch

Dear Stanton Families,

We are excited to delve into the second half of our school year at Stanton Elementary, welcoming students back to Face to Face learning while continuing to offer high quality instruction to our fully remote students.   

At Stanton, we believe that new challenges bring new learning and growth. I want to thank our school community for your continued support of our students and staff as we navigate the many changes that we have already faced and the ones yet to come. Our teachers have been working very hard to plan and teach in both virtual and classroom environments, which can be a challenging task.  We appreciate their hard work and salute their efforts as it is always our priority to do our due diligence to offer the BEST possible educational experience for our students.  

Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build between our school and home. 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 continue to stay #StayStrongOhio by following our strict mask, distancing and sanitization protocols.  We have navigated quarantine mandates as well as cases of Covid-19 not contracted at the school site.  We pride ourselves in maintaining a safe and secure learning environment for our Wildcat staff and families.  We cannot wait until the day we can open the campus back up to parents and volunteers but we appreciate your understanding as we place a high priority on safety for all.

We are confident you will continue to 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 finish strong! Go Cats!

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Shannah Scotch, Principal
