New Procedure for Class Lists

Due to our growth and the continuous addition of classes, families will be notified of teacher assignments differently this year. Class lists will be posted outside in the K-2 playground area for parents and students to see prior to the Meet the Teacher event. The lists will be posted at 6:00pm on Tuesday, August 22 so feel free to drop by Tuesday night or on Wednesday prior to the event to find out which fabulous SRE teacher will be teaching your student.

Captain's Message

Ahoy Sailors,


The 2017 - 2018 school year is almost here! We, along with the SRE staff, are excited to begin this year with your family. We are fortunate to be part of an AWESOME school community and look forward to making this another fantastic year for Scotts Ridge!

Scotts Ridge Elementary continues to grow! This year we will have 6 classes in kindergarten, 7 in first and second, 8 in third, and 5 in fourth and fifth. We are excited to be welcoming some additional staff to our SRE Crew this year. Be sure to check out the website in the coming weeks.


We especially want to welcome Mrs. Wynne Youngblood as our Administrative Intern this year. Wynne is completing her Masters of School Administration this year from NCSU. Welcome Aboard Mrs. Youngblood!


Our first opportunity to meet this year will be on Wednesday, August 23, 2017. Doors will open for our Meet the Teacher at 4:30 for our first through fifth grade students. Parents and students will be able to drop by to meet their teachers, visit classrooms, and drop off school supplies. Parents may also register students for Before and After School Care with the YMCA, confirm bus routes and times with Transportation representatives, and join the PTA. Parents may also sign up for carpool numbers and set up meal accounts.

During this event, parents will also be able to register to volunteer in the school. This registration process must be completed and approved before anyone is allowed to volunteer.


Please see the note above about our new procedure for class lists for first through fifth graders.


Kindergarten families should receive a postcard by August 21 indicating their staggered entry date for the week of August 28th. Kindergarten Meet the Teacher will be held at 11:30 on Friday, September 1, 2017.


We look forward to seeing you on August 23rd! It is going to be a WHAM! ZAP! BAM! year for the Sailors!


Sincerely,

Mel Leach, Principal

Jill Harrison, Assistant Principal

Wynne Youngblood, Administrative Intern
