Bulldog Bulletin #1 – September 11, 2015
Terrific Start to our 2015-2016 School Year!
Thank you to all our staff who have made this September’s start up run so smoothly. Our teachers have worked long hours for the past 2 weeks getting their classrooms and curricula ready. Thank you parents for your patience during this first week of school. As of today 31 new students have registered at TE Scott. We are required to wait for confirmation from the District regarding our final staffing before we place our students in their classes. This year it worked in our favour as yesterday after school we were informed that we are getting an additional class to fit in our student population of 506. As always our staff will be carefully creating our classes so they are balanced with students’ academic and social needs in mind. Students will be placed into their 2015 -2016 classes next week.
Once again, thank you for your patience.

Important School Info
TE Scott Planners go on sale Monday! Students in grades 1 -7 please bring $5.00 to purchase your Planner!
Please Note: We strongly encourage all students who live within walking distance to walk to school. Without a doubt it is great exercise. For those families who need to drive your child to school, please be aware of the traffic behind you and do not block traffic or double park when letting your child off. Please remember our Parking Lot is for STAFF ONLY. Please use the Drop Off Bay in front of our school.
This is a drop and keep moving zone!
The safety of all our students at TE Scott must take precedence over convenience.
