Family Update - 8/21/22
Scott Dual Language Magnet
Off to a Great Start!
Dear Scott families,
This week brought more “beginning of the year” excitement as our teachers began building the foundations to dual language success in their classrooms, we welcomed our smallest Panthers, and celebrated with a R.O.A.R. Spirit Assembly! Read on for details, as well as to find out how you can get involved to help support the culture of our school!
We were so happy to welcome our tiniest Panthers on Thursday!
Grade Level Spotlight!
Mrs. Muñoz' 3rd grade class learns about force by wrapping rubber bands around a watermelon until it bursts! Vocab List: Force --> La Fuerza
Spirit Wear Coming Soon!
What better way is there to promote our school and build positive school culture than with Spirit Wear? Our PTO has worked hard to come up with some great design options to ensure that you have a great selection for your family! The fundraiser will go live on Monday, watch for the link and get your Scott DL gear!
New Positions at Scott Dual Language!
On Thursday and Friday, students enjoyed an “all-out” Spirit Assembly! The exciting atmosphere included a “Spirit Tunnel” entrance, teacher and student cheerleaders, a review of our responsibilities, practicing our school chant, and…drum roll please… the grand unveiling of the New and Improved Panther Pay Store! Students earn Panther Pays when they display pro-school skills, and can spend their dollars periodically at the store. Ask your kids how they show their R.O.A.R.!
- R- Respectful
- O- Outstanding Citizen
- A- Active Learner
- R- Responsible
Get Involved at ScottDL!
We at Scott are excited to grow the connection between our schools, families, and community! There are many ways that families can get involved, at a variety of commitment levels. Please consider getting involved in one or more of the following:
Parent-Teacher Organization PTO -
PTO is an organization composed of teachers, parents/care-givers, and school staff all working together to improve our school's community. The level of commitment is very flexible! There are about 5 meetings per year, and your involvement can range from giving ideas, donations, setting up luncheons, contacting families, and assisting with events.
Stay informed by following our Scott Dual Language PTO Facebook Page, and by attending the meetings. If you would like to be added to the email distribution list, please message Igi Randall, PTO president, at email@example.com.
