About Us

Scott Central Public School is located in the town of Sandford, north west of Uxbridge. The school was built to amalgamate several small, rural schools serving the adjacent communities of Zephyr, Udora and Leaskdale. Scott Central P.S. has a population of 321 students and a staff of 30 caring, dedicated professionals consisting of teachers, educational assistants, administration, secretary, and custodial staff.

Mission statement

Scott Central represents the values and expectations of the community. We promote and encourage academic excellence within a caring and responsible school environment. We are truly “Together in Education” with our parents and students.

Principal’s message

We welcome everyone to our 2019-2020 school year. We are so pleased that we were able to connect with familiar and new faces at our annual BBQ. If we look at the numbers...and at Scott Central we’re always looking at the numbers to ensure our students see the numeracy that surrounds us, our night was a huge success. We sold approximately 360 burgers and all 200 cupcakes! If burgers cost $2 each and cupcakes cost $1 each how much did our School Community Council (SCC) raise to support important initiatives that support the success and well-being of our students? A huge thank you goes out to Mr .Pereshuk for his incredibly generous donation of burgers, condiments, time and expertise, even after his children have graduated from our school!

 

Speaking of SCC and involvement at Scott Central Public School, the first SCC meeting was held on Tuesday, September 17th in our updated Learning Commons. If you missed it and want to be involved, don’t worry. SCC meets on the third Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 7:30.  We’d love to have you there. If that doesn’t work for your schedule, involvement at Scott Central has many facets. We’re looking for volunteers to read daily with our students. If you are available for an hour a day, even once a week, we’d love more lunchroom supervisors to support our students socially and emotionally during lunch recess.  

 

Involvement doesn’t even have to be at the school level.  Supporting your child(ren) from home involves keeping in contact with your child’s teacher, checking in the agenda at night to see what is coming up, signing up for the class Remind, or figuring out how to access your child’s Google Classroom, so you can support your child’s learning.  Not sure how to do that? Keep your eyes and ears open because we’re planning on having at least one night or afternoon this year to teach parents how to access the technology that your child uses every day! 

 

To stay up-to-date on events, please go to our new Scott Central website and scroll down to our school calendar where we post all of our events to keep everyone organized. You can also follow us on Instagram or Twitter (@ScottCentralPS) so that you can receive direct notifications regarding events happening in our school, our community, and the DDSB! 

 

Finally, September is Attendance Month. Did you know that “missing just two days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.”(https://www.attendanceworks.org/) If your child is going to be absent, please help out Ms. Weir and create a School Messenger account to report your child’s absences. 

We’re looking forward to a great year of learning and growing for everyone and to our families’  involvement in this process!
