First Connect to Kinder Meeting

The Scott PTA has formed a Kindergarten Committee to help welcome incoming parents of new kindergartners to our community. The first Connect to Kinder meeting of the 2018 school year will be held on Thursday, Jan. 25th at 6pm in the library. The Kindergarten Committee is planning on being at that meeting and serving as greeters and parent liaisons, and the PTA will have an information table with lost of stuff you need do know, as well as Scott swag for sale!

If you would like to help out as a set-up person, volunteer, or just as a greeter who can share your child’s experiences at Scott with new parents, please contact to connect with our Volunteer Coordinator. Thank you!
