Scott Dual Language Magnet
Dear Scott Families,
As we transition from February to March, there are several exciting events taking place at Scott DL that we don't want you to miss out on! First, our Digital Spirit Wear Store has opened with fresh new designs. Additionally, on Wednesday, we have a Coding and Robotics Night at Topeka High, and on Thursday, we have a PTO fundraiser at QDOBA, . These engaging activities and fundraisers are fantastic opportunities to support our school and community.
We hope that you will take part in these events and enjoy everything that our school has to offer. Wishing you all a wonderful week, and don't forget to enjoy the beautiful weather!
CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY
As February comes to a close, we wanted to share the gorgeous bulletin boards that have been gracing our halls. These boards are designed and constructed by our wonderful paraprofessionals! Great job everyone!
ALL-STAR KITCHEN STAFF
Our lunch ladies have been impressing judges left and right with their delicious and beautiful meals! They recently won 1st Place in January, 3rd Place in February, and 1st Place for their amazing holiday meal in December. We're so lucky to have such talented and dedicated staff members making our meals every day. Congratulations to our lunch ladies on their well-deserved awards!
LOCAL FIREFIGHTER VISITS SCOTT DL
Get fired up! The 2nd graders at Scott DL had a blast last week when a local firefighter visited their class. The students were thrilled to meet a real-life hero and learn all about fire safety. From smoke detectors to creating fire safety plans, the firefighter shared valuable tips to keep the students and their families safe.
The students eagerly asked questions and listened to exciting stories about what it's like to be a firefighter. It was an awesome opportunity to learn and connect with the brave men and women who keep our community safe. Way to go, 2nd graders!
