Positive Vibes to Start Our Friday
On Friday morning, students and staff were treated to positive energy as they entered school by Pastor Robertson and the ME WE CITY parishioners. It was wonderful to see the students and staff enter the building smiling and feeling loved. Pastor Robertson will be making his way around to the schools in the district. We can't wait to have him back!
Raise Right Gift Cards for Holiday Shopping
The holidays will be here before we know it! Will you be ready? Let PTO help you cross gift cards off your shopping list! We are using RaiseRight (formerly Scrip) to raise money to support our students and teachers. You buy gift cards to your choice of hundreds of retailers, restaurants, etc. and the school gets a percentage of the total at no extra cost to you. Cards can be purchased now through December 8th and will arrive in time for the holidays. This is a great way to support our school while getting your holiday shopping taken care of!
Coatesville Middle School Robotics Team Advances to State Finals
This year, the Coatesville High School Robotics Club mentored two FIRST Lego League Middle School Teams. I am proud to say that on Saturday at Chestnut Hill Academy, a PA State Qualifier Competition, Coatesville FLL Raiderbots 3-Team 54324 advanced to the state finals by winning the Innovation Project Award. "This award celebrates a team with an efficiently designed robot, an innovative project solution that effectively addresses the season challenge and great Core Values evident in all they do. This award celebrates a team that the judges notice and expect great things from in the future." We would all like to congratulate the team which consists of (Taylor Davis, Charles Robertson, Jacob Powalski, Kenley Crane, Jessica Davis, Imalia Azarak, Wyatt Soden). The team would also like to thank the high school robotics team members who volunteered their time to mentor the two teams (Alvin Tolden, Gavin Raezer, and Chelsea Campos) and a special thanks to Mrs Octavia Warren-Ward for advising them through the entire process. Congratulations Raiderbots3!

Student of the Month for November
Wednesday marked the end of November and time to start celebrating our students and staff for their hard work and dedication. Colbin Charron was announced as Star Student for November. He earned 5 golden tickets this month! Teachers are proud of how hard he works in class, and how he is always willing to help a classmate. Colbin will be featured in our front hall of fame for the rest of the school year.
Golden tickets are earned by students who go "Above and beyond" the expectation of Respect, Ownership, Courage, Kindness, and Safety. Staff present golden tickets to students when they see them doing great things.
Congratulations, Colbin, for earning this honor. We are so proud of you and your hard work this first month of school. You are a ROCKStar!
November's Employee of the Month
We want to congratulate our Employee of the Month for November, Mrs. Jess Imburgia! Mrs. Imburgia received a banner to hang in her classroom, and she will be featured in our front hall of fame on the main floor. Mrs. Lamothe will also be washing her car.
Mrs. Imburgia works so hard to support our students and staff. She is our building's Behavior Specialist and works closely with all our staff. Mrs. Imburgia is often found in her classroom supporting students or in the hallways and classrooms helping them to make good choices. Our building would not be the same without her. We are so happy she is a part of our Scott Family. Congratulations, Mrs. Imburgia!
Mrs. Murray, Mr. Handerhan, and Mrs. Sette were runners up and received $5 gift cards to treat themselves at Wawa.
Cell Phone Usage
As you know, the expectation for students in school is that their phone is turned off and away in their bookbag. We have had a recent uptick in teachers having to remind students of this expectation. I appreciate you speaking to your student about keeping their cell phone away at school.
As a reminder, if students need to go home, they should go to the nurse and she will call you if you need to come pick your student up from school. If your child calls you from their cell phone to come get them at school, please direct them to the nurse instead of just coming for them.
Mr. Altland and I would also like to ask if your child calls you about an incident at school, please have them tell a teacher or one of us. We have been receiving calls from families about incidents that we don't even know about because students are calling home rather than telling an adult at school that can help them with the situation.
I greatly appreciate your support with this!

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.
