A NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL SCRIVO

It was wonderful to see and speak with so many of you today on our first Scotch Virtual Connect. I hope that many of you walked away with the majority of your questions answered. We apprciate all the feedback and suggestions. Thank you all for being so flexible during this unpredictable and challanging time.


Let's stay virtually connected again this week by celebrating with another Scotch Spirit Week. Our student's are getting very creative with this. Please continue to share your student/s photos. This week we will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Week. We are challenging students to learn more about this EVENT and why it is still important.


Scotch School has earned Evergreen Status as a Michigan Green School for 2019-2020! This is our fifth year participating in this program. If you have any questions regarding our Green School program please contact Mrs. Farrell our 4th grade teacher at ann.farrell@wbsd.org

NETIQUTTE

When anyone engages online, it's essential that everyone behaves appropriately. West Bloomfield students and staff must comply with the Student Code of Conduct and Staff Handbook when it comes to communicating online. As a quick reminder, when you're online, be sure to:

  • Use respectful behavior and language.
  • Stick to appropriate topic discussions.
  • Send only appropriate video transmissions.
  • Use only appropriate icon, emoji, and avatar submissions.
  • Wear school appropriate clothing if you are attending meetings via video.
  • Be honest and do not plagiarize or copy others’ work -- in other words, use academic integrity.
  • Not falsify information about yourself or impersonate others online.

When everyone remembers to act kindly, show consideration for others, and treat one another online as you wish to be treated in person, we'll all be able to focus on learning.
