A Message From Mrs. Elliott

Greeting Scorpion Country,

I hope you all had a beautiful weekend resting and celebrating Mother's Day. A special thank you to all our Scorpion Moms for everything you've done, especially during our Remote Learning times. We also thank you for celebrating our teachers and nurse with us. The messages you posted for our teachers were heartwarming and very kind. Our Teachers deserve the love and greatly appreciated it.

As we move on to week eight of the 4th 9 Weeks, I want to remind you to reach out to teachers, counselors and administration for any help and assistance you may need. We still have about 23.4% of scholars that need to be registered for the 2020-21 school year; please let us know how we can help.

Scorpions please continue to Work hard, have an I can attitude and Never give up! Let's finish Scorpion Strong! Go Scorpions!!

With Love,

Gabriela Elliott, Proud Scorpion Principal

Will we be able to pick up items from school?

During the last week of May and first week of June, teachers will be going into the campus to gather items for our scholars.


  • personal desk items
  • backpacks
  • spring pictures
  • t-shirts/hoodies purchased


  • Any used workbooks or journals.
  • Used class sets of crayons, glue or other items that were previously used while in class.

Teachers will place them in bags and be available for pick-up at an assigned time (1 HOUR: 8 to 9am or 3 to 4pm). Schedules will be shared next week so that you can plan accordingly. Administration will set up a summer pick-up day for any families that cannot make their scheduled time slot.


You can return your library books and instruments when you pick up items from school on your scheduled date. Please keep in mind that scholars are still responsible for any books that were checked out. Books can also be returned at the beginning of the year for grades K-7th Grades.


We will have a line for them to return:

Library Books



Any Money Owed for fundraisers

At the end of their checkout, they will receive a video commemorating their time at Sybert. You don't want to miss out on this awesome video created with lots of love on behalf of the school and our amazing 8th Grade Teachers.
