Playground DAG

We have exciting news! As part of the recently approved bond money, Stott will be getting a new playground in the summer of 2020!


We need to create a Design Advisory Group, to provide input to Jeffco and the architectural firm that was selected to work on this project. I am looking for 2-3 parents to join this committee. The work will involve setting priorities and reviewing the design. Our first meeting will be next Wednesday, September 18 at 5:00 in the evening. At this meeting, we will set our schedule for future meetings. We should only need to come together 3-4 times.


Please send me an email at cjehnmcc@jeffco.k12.co.us if you are interested in participating. You do need to be available for every meeting if you choose to be on this committee.

Field Day!! September 19, 2019

Ms. Heise our incredible new PE teacher has been busy at work planning for her first-ever Elementary School Field Day. We are excited to see all of the fun activities that she has planned. Below is the rough schedule of events:



8:50-9:00 Opening Ceremonies

9:00-11:00 Morning Stations K-5

11:00-12:15 Lunch

12:15-2:00 Afternoon events 1-5 (1st and 2nd Grade may not participate all afternoon; will depend on how tired students are)

Teachers will keep an attendance roster with them throughout the day. If you choose to take your student out to lunch or home early, please make sure to sign them out with the teacher. Teachers need to know where all students are at all times. Thank you for your help.


Here's to a great fall Field Day!

Attendance Matters

Big picture

Please use the crosswalk

Families, please use the crosswalk when entering or leaving the parking lot. The curve by the bus lane is a blind corner and many times drivers can't see people in the street until the very last moment. I am concerned about safety, especially for our littlest students.

Internet Monitoring

I recently was sent this article. While a lot of the information appears more likely to be used by middle school and high school students, I found it quite interesting. If your child has a cell phone, it might be worth a look to see what apps they have downloaded.
