Scotland Elementary News

There’s nothing we enjoy more than sharing all the great news about our students and staff members. We love featuring their accomplishments and celebrating with them. And we have a lot to share! Stop by here regularly to read about student and staff awards, past happenings, upcoming events, and so much more!

Field Day

Our field day is on Friday, June 7 with a rain date of Tuesday, June 11. We are looking forward to a fun day!

K-2 students will have activities from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and 3-5 students will have them from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Students should wear their grade level colors:

  • Kindergarten: green
  • First grade: purple
  • Second grade: red
  • Third grade: orange
  • Fourth grade: yellow
  • Fifth grade: blue

We need parent volunteers to make this event a success! Visit our Sign-Up Genius to register to help.

Library Media Center Reminder

Wednesday, May 22 is the last day to check out books from our library media center. As students come to the library in the coming weeks, Mrs. Gonillo will ask students to return their books so she can begin processing them for inventory and preparing for next year.

5th Grade Moving-Up Ceremony

Please join us for our 5th grade moving-up ceremony on Thursday, June 13 at 9:30 a.m. We look forward to celebrating our students!

Playdates and Riding the Bus

We know how fun it is for our students to get together after school and enjoy time together! Due to safety and limited space on the buses, we are asking that students have no more than two guest riders with them at a time. Anytime there is a need for more than two additional students to ride, families will need to make arrangements for parent pick up that day. Thank you for understanding!

Dismissal Reminder

Here is a reminder about dismissal. The cutoff in School Dismissal Manager is noon daily, and any changes need to be made prior to that time. We truly appreciate your help!

Digital Backpack

RPS distributes flyers for outside groups via a digital backpack. Organizations that meet the RPS policy may submit their request for inclusion in the digital backpack by emailing us. Please help us in our effort to go green by checking students' digital backpacks regularly. Thank you!

State Standardized Testing

Students in grades three through five will take the Smarter Balanced Assessment in math and language arts. In addition, students in grade five will take the Next Generation Science Standards Assessment. Our students at Scotland will be completing the testing from May 2 through May 22 with possible additional make-up days the following week.
