Dear Scott Community,
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful beginning to the school year. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my transition to Scott and getting to know you and your children.
By now, I hope you’ve seen the phrase “Every Child. Every Day. A Success.” around our school. I’ve been asked if this is our school motto, this year’s theme, part of a Scott mission statement, etc. In my opinion, it is more of a vision than simply a theme or motto.
My hope is that “Every Child. Every Day. A Success.” is embedded and lived throughout Scott, and guides us all in the day to day business of promoting student learning and growth. The concept should be present and identifiable in the way we work, problem solve, and plan. In short, I want it to become who we are as a community and who we are as partners in the education of your children.
As partners, I ask that you engage in conversations with your children about a definition of success that meets their needs. It could be academic. It could also be connected to their social/emotional growth. Ideally, it would be connected to both as academics and social emotional learning are so very interrelated. It should be long term, as well as short term. A long term academic example might be reaching an annual growth goal on a performance series test or achieving a certain reading level. A short term social emotional “success” might be implementing a technique or strategy to overcome frustration. Another could be having the courage to ask someone to play that might not otherwise have a friend. To me, success must be defined and articulated by the individual student. But, as partners, we can guide them in this process.
Every child counts. And, every day counts. With your support and partnership, we can ensure every child is successful.
Thank you for all you do. Please let me know how I can help.
