to Stott Elementary!
principal of Stott, I am proud to be part of such a wonderful school that is
committed to students and families. Stott has a long history as a neighborhood
school that is well loved by many. We are known for our welcoming environment,
professional staff and supportive parents.
teachers and staff at Stott are continually striving for academic excellence by
providing a learning environment that holds high expectations for student
learning, responsible behavior, and respect for others. We offer up-to-date
academic resources that support the state and district standards. Students
benefit daily from whole group lessons as well as instruction that are
differentiated toward individual needs. Every student participates in guided
reading groups that support reading comprehension using authentic books from our
extensive leveled book room. Students are able to delve deeper into
understanding number sense, problem solving and computation skills through
Investigations math. Most recently we have systemically implemented the Lucy
Calkins Units of Study writing program along with using writers’ crafts, and the
6 Traits of Writing. Students also receive instruction and support in developing
positive social skills through our Stott S.O.L.E. positive behavior program.
Teachers, staff, and parents work together to teach children to be respectful of
Self, Others, Learning
environment, and Effort. As a result, Stott students are happy,
kind, and ready to learn each day.
is integrated in all learning at Stott. Every classroom has a Smartboard,
document camera, and student computers. We also have three mobile carts that
house 45 wireless laptops along with a computer lab. Thanks to the commitment of
our parents, PTSA, and community students are able to show their learning and
express their creativity by using current technology, websites, and
parents show their support by being active in our PTSA and Accountability
committees. We have several yearly events that celebrate our families and
community. Some of our most popular events include First Night Stott,
Grandparents’ Day, Science Fair, Western Dinner/Dance, and the school carnival.
Parents also have the opportunity to offer their voice in the parent survey
which is designed to explore ideas to better our school. Most recently, the PTSA
formed a school beautification committee that is dedicated to finding resources
to update Stott’s building and grounds in order make our school a beautiful
place for children.
Stott community of teachers, parents and staff members knows that the secret to
successful students is our commitment to working together for academic
excellence, a positive environment, and a safe place for children to learn and
grow. We welcome all who would like to join us in our partnership for student
growth and success.
