Welcome to Scootney Elementary School!
We, the staff at Scootney Springs, are dedicated to providing your child with a well-rounded educational experience. We will be emphasizing our school-wide goals of reading, writing, math, science, parental involvement and discipline, which establish the foundation needed throughout your child’s lifetime. We, as educators, together with you, as parents, have formed a partnership to make a positive difference in your child’s education. Throughout the school year, we will have special events to celebrate the accomplishments your child has achieved. We hope you will not hesitate to visit our school during these occasions, as well as during the regular school day.
In Washington, four clear goals guide education. Students should be able to:
✯ Read with comprehension, write with skill and communicate effectively and responsibly.
✯ Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical and life sciences; civics and history; geography; arts and health and fitness.
✯ Think analytically, logically and creatively and integrate experience and knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems.
✯ Understand the importance of work and how performance, effort and decisions affect career and educational opportunities.
