Ahoy Scotts Ridge Families!


We are currently in the process of organizing our first ever International Festival scheduled for Thursday, April 20th from 5:30-7:00 pm. International Festival Night at Scotts Ridge will promote global learning and highlight our school’s ties to the international community. This event is an opportunity for families to interact with one another at school, be unified by pride in our children, and celebrate all the richness and benefits we get from living in a diverse community.


Each grade level will have the opportunity to showcase, and display in their classrooms or hallways, specific examples of student work based on the grade-level content and/or curriculum standards that have been taught and learned throughout the school year. This is a great event that celebrates diversity and promotes awareness, respect, and cooperation among cultures and nations. We would like for you and/or your child to participate by sharing your culture, connecting us with a business who would be willing to participate, or simply attending the event with our child. There are a variety of ways that you could represent your culture, including but not limited to: sharing food samples, music, art, or traditions. Please know that you are not committing to participate by filling out our interest form. We will use this information for further communication while planning our event.

Scotts Ridge Family Partnership Survey

At Scotts Ridge, we believe that we can best support students when we collaborate effectively with families. We are aware that some families find it challenging to get involved at school and collaborate with school staff. We would love your feedback to help us identify priorities for increasing family collaboration and engagement. Please click here for more details and to complete the survey. We would appreciate it if you would complete the survey as soon as possible, and no later than Friday, January 20th. For the survey results to be meaningful, helpful to our long-range planning, and representative of our diverse community, we need a majority of our families to participate in the survey.
