The Latest from Scott DL
THE ADVENTUREMOBILE IS BACK!
The AventureMobile is back on tour! The Topeka Public Library will send its Adventuremobile (Bookmobile) to Scott DL every other Tuesday this school year. Grades Kindergarten - 2nd have the option to participate. As long as students return their book from a previous visit, they can check a new book out. We are grateful to have this option!
HAUNTED GYM MAKES IT'S CREEPY (AND TOTALLY AWESOME) RETURN!
The first Haunted Gym was 13 years ago. It is important, says Scott DL PE Instructor, Troy St. Clair, "because students get to experience and perform a variety of different activities and skills in a themed setting. Most importantly having fun in a once-a-year special event". On Friday, PE teachers district-wide came to Scott to view the gym and its various stations.

CHOOSE PEACE SPIRIT DAYS
October is anti-bullying month. Oct. 24-26, students are encouraged to participate in our theme days related to peace. Each day, we will hear a brief student-led announcement about practical ways to “keep the peace”!
You are invited to attend our annual Halloween Parade! Students will parade from the circle drive and around the school. Parents may line up around the perimeter to cheer for our Scott Panthers! Following the parade, students will return to their classrooms to enjoy treats. You are welcome to join your child at their Halloween party! Dismissal will be as normal.
Non-Halloween activities will be available in the media center during the parade and parties. Please communicate with your student’s teacher as soon as possible if you prefer this choice!
Deliver treats to the office prior to 1:00 pm on 10/31, or send treats with your student.
Please be mindful that Scott DL is a NO-PEANUT school.
We do not have the capacity to refrigerate or heat party food.
