SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS

Scotts Elementary is a rural NC Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade Title I public school located north and west of Statesville, North Carolina, in Iredell County. Our student population of 347 is comprised of diverse ethnicities. Scotts is a smaller than average public elementary school, featuring 2 to 3 classrooms per grade level and 1 NC Pre K Classroom.

We teach the North Carolina Standard Course Of Study with a balanced literacy approach and Common Core Curriculum in all classrooms. We utilize the Letterland™ and Phonics For Reading™ systems to teach phonics to our students. All students are guaranteed a minimum of 90 minutes of reading and math instruction every day. We also are under a district-wide grant umbrella that guides us in the principles and practices of a Multi-Tiered System of Support to provide extension; acceleration, and close academic and behavior gaps for all students.

 

Students receive numerous opportunities for enrichment in all curricular and extra curricular areas, such as Terrific Kids; PBIS instruction and recognition; Battle of the Books; Fire Safety Quiz Bowl; Spelling Bee participation; Science Fair; Math Expo; Odyssey Of The Mind; Robotics;  Girls On The Run; Good News Club; recognition of Honor Roll students and recognition of Perfect Attendance. Our school provides a 3:1 or lower ratio of IPads in every classroom and maintains a computer lab that is available to all students to use for enrichment purposes such as Reading A to Z; I-Station; Moby Max Reading;  I-Ready; Big Universe;  research for projects and presentations; desktop publishing; research paper writing; and EOG practice modules.  Student Support Services including exceptional children’s programs; ESL services; AIG support with a differentiation specialist, and small group counseling are available at all times.

We Are A North Carolina A+ - Arts Integrated School

In April of 2016, Scotts Elementary received the official designation of being a North Carolina A+  Arts-Integrated School, under the prestigious program known as the 

 A+ Schools Program Of The North Carolina Arts Council.   We are extremely excited about this wonderful opportunity as we begin our third year of preparing to bring engaging, meaningful and enjoyable learning experiences to your child’s future classroom.

 

What does it mean to be an A+ School?   According to the North Carolina A+ website       

http://www.aplus-schools.ncdcr.gov/About-A-43,  “The A+ Schools Program is a whole-school reform model that views the arts as fundamental to teaching and learning in all subjects. A+ Schools combine interdisciplinary teaching and daily arts instruction, offering children opportunities to develop creative, innovative ways of thinking, learning and showing what they know. In A+ Schools, teaching the state’s mandated curriculum involves a collaborative, many-disciplined approach, with the arts continuously woven into every aspect of a child’s learning.   The central vision of A+ is to build enhanced, creative, arts-integrated learning opportunities for all students. For schools, A+ gradually becomes a comprehensive education reform because other changes in school practice, in areas from assessment to scheduling and collaboration to parent involvement, radiate out as necessary to achieve this central vision.

 

Scotts A+ Elementary School

Each A+ school develops a unique school identity around the arts that deepens and enhances each student’s educational experience and prepares them for the challenges of today’s creative and global economy.”

 

Each year, teachers and staff  attend and participate in A+ customized leadership training and professional development where we  learn how to collaborate across curriculums and integrate our lesson planning for  implementation of A+ models of instruction in all classrooms. This  training, coaching and support from A+ Schools and the North Carolina Arts Council has been in place for least 3 years, and it is our vision that this model will continue at Scotts A+ Elementary for many years to come.

 

As in the past three school years, you should expect to see innovative methods of delivery of curriculum and instruction in your child’s classroom.   These innovations include active integration of the arts in the learning process (examples = art projects that support standard learning objectives; music projects that support standard learning objectives; dramatic presentations; research; presentation; etc.).  Since  the 2016-17 school year, have successfully added, with input from our parents; students; teachers and staff, additional arts-based classes such as piano lessons in a keyboard lab-classroom; dance classes in a dance studio classroom; STEAM classes featuring Lego Workshops, coding and Odyssey Of The Mind, and theater arts classes. Students routinely demonstrate their comprehension of the standard course of study by way of cultural and artistic expression.  The 20+ years of data and research on A+

schools tells us that our students are learning in highly engaging classroom environments; they are demonstrating improvement and growth in their academic performance; and they will be well prepared to become outstanding 21st Century citizens who will rise to heights of achievement, accomplishment, and success!

 

Thank you for your support and encouragement as we continue our journey as  “Scotts A+ Elementary School”!  Please help us spread the word to all that our school is the best school in all of Iredell County!
