Thank You, Families!

On behalf of our entire staff, thank you to all parents and our PTA for your generosity and thoughtfulness during Teacher Appreciation Week. It was heartwarming to see the different ways that students made their teachers feel special. A special thank you for Mrs. Horton from our PTA for organizing all the festivities.

We also want to thank all the families who participated in the Walk, Bike, or Roll to School Day! 

All Field Day volunteer slots have been filled. Thank you for your support of our students and staff!


Please Complete Panorama Family Survey

So far we have received 238 responses to the Panorama Family Survey. We would really love to have input from every Scotts Ridge family. Friday is the last day to complete the survey.

Wake County Public Schools is administering a District Wide Family Survey from Monday, April 8 through Friday, May 17. This survey provides families the opportunity to provide valuable feedback, and it is a high-quality data source for school planning and School Improvement. Please help us by completing the survey online. A high response rate makes the data much more meaningful. The survey should take approximately 7 minutes to complete.
