A Message from Our Principal

Dear Scotland Community,

As the proud principal this school, I would like to welcome you to our website! We hope you find this tool a helpful one where you will find important messages, dates for special events, and school updates to keep you informed of life at Scotland.

Our teachers and staff utilize the responsive classroom approach to help support students’ social-emotional growth and well-being, which positively impacts learning experiences both in and out of school.

Through the workshop model of instruction, we engage our students in all content areas through guided and independent practice where we encourage and value student discourse as well as creativity and collaboration. 

Students develop their "Scotty Pride" by taking part in the varied events during and after school – from the "Scotty Sprint" in the fall to the concerts and plays throughout the year including a dance performance and an art show in the spring!

Scotland’s PTA has a strong positive presence in our school. Our PTA supports teaching and learning in various ways including the arts, sciences, and after school enrichment classes to name a few. 

Please feel free to contact our school should you have any questions or want to visit!  

Sincerely,

Joanna Genovese
