Scott 6th Grade Center
September 19, 2022
We are working towards allowing students to use their technology during lunch, but we are not there yet. I have been speaking with students about the responsibility and respect that needs to be shown in order for this to happen.
We have had some incidents recently of recording and posting. This behavior is punishable per our code of conduct and the students involved received consequences. Please speak to your students about the importance of not recording without permission, and definitely not posting videos in texts or on social media.
I appreciate your support.
ROCKStar Tickets "Cashed" In
Friday was our first day of student cashing in their ROCKStar tickets for prizes. Students have been earning ROCKStar tickets for showing Respect, Ownership, Courage, Kindness, and Safety. These are the 5 pillars of our behavioral expectations at Scott.
Mrs. Murray, our guidance counselor and head of the PBIS team at Scott, helped the students choose their prizes. Prizes ranged from 1 to 40 tickets. Students had choices of pencil top erasers, folders, pens, pencils, fidgets, notebooks, calendars, "Pop Its", and snacks.

School Start Time 7:25 am
Most of our students seem to be acclimated to the early start time of Middle School. Please remember that students may begin to enter the building at 7:00 am. If they arrive that early, they may sit in the auditorium until 7:15 when they are dismissed to grab a breakfast if they would like and then head to homeroom. Classes begin at 7:25. If students arrive after that, they are marked late.
I appreciate your support in getting students to school on time.
Just a couple reminders to families:
- Students should not be contacting families to be picked up when they are not feeling well. Students need to be assessed by the nurse and calls home will be made as needed. If families want to be called each time their student comes to the nurse, please email Ann Keenan, school nurse (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is not standard practice to call home for non-urgent matters.
- Emergency Health Forms were sent home last week (lime green). If you did not complete the Emergency Health Information online, you must complete the paperwork and return it to the school nurse.
- Covid 19 is still causing illness and absences. Please continue to test and take precautions to avoid further spread. 5 days of isolation followed by 5 days of well-fitting masks is the current CDC guideline. (see below).
- The school nurse will be starting health screenings (Vision, Growth and Scoliosis). If your student has glasses, please make sure they have them for school.
