Contacting Miss Stott
The best way to contact me is by email. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the school day, the classroom phone goes straight to voicemail, so if you leave a message, I will get it after school and return your call as soon as possible. The classroom phone number is (480) 308-7231. Please feel free to contact me any time.
Since I don't always have the chance to check voicemail before students leave for the day, if you have a message for your child please call the office. The office phone number is (480) 308-7240.
• I expect students to care about their own learning, and to participate in class discussions that push their thinking and the thinking of others.
• I expect students to do their best work all the time.
• I expect students to be nice.
The classroom can be an inspiring place, but everyone has to be committed to this vision. Our class goal is to create a learning environment where every person feels valued and respected. As the teacher, I take any kind of disruption to this environment very seriously .
We will have homework each night (excluding weekends). The homework will reinforce and enrich the learning that is occurring in the classroom. Most of the time, students should be able to complete their homework independently. Parents & guardians can help by creating a quiet, consistent work environment at home.
Please sign your child's agenda each night to show that you have seen his/her completed work. Often, I use the agenda to note any concerns or questions I have. It's a great form of daily communication between school and home!
You are welcome to send birthday treats for your child's birthday (or half-birthday if your child's birthday is in the summer)! The best time for us to hand out treats is right after lunch or at the very end of the day. You can send them in the morning, or let me know when you'd like to come so we can plan our schedule accordingly. Thanks!
