Scootney Springs Elementary
NOTES FROM THE OFFICE
As we step into the second part of the school year, I want to express my gratitude for a fantastic first semester. Our students have shown academic growth, and our dedicated teachers are diligently focused on providing targeted instruction to meet their individual needs.
We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our new portables, which will house our fourth-grade students and technology specials. This strategic move is part of our ongoing efforts to optimize the use of our school spaces for the benefit of our students. We understand that the arrival and dismissal processes have been challenging, especially with the added barriers during the portable installation. We want to assure you that this is a temporary situation, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to enhance our learning environment.
3rd Grade Updates & Fun Fact:
The third grade has been working hard to learn all about Fractions in January! Students have been practicing identifying fractions, comparing fractions, placing fractions on number line, and learning about equivalent fractions. You can support this learning at home by talking to your child about fractions in your daily life!
Did you know third grade is the first year that students take the SBA? This is a computer-based assessment that all third-grade students will take in May. They will take the assessment for Reading and Math!
