About Mrs. Scott

My name is Robin Scott and I am so pleased to be a part of Life School and I am honored to be the 6th grade Math teacher. I love those moments when the light bulb goes on and the students understand the concept!

A little about myself:
I am the 6th grade Math teacher.  I have also taught Science and Social Studies.   My husband, James, and I have been married since 1975. I am so proud of my two grown sons, Christopher and Jeffrey. Chris is married to Molly, and they have blessed me with two beautiful grandchildren. In addition to teaching, my interests include Bible study, reading, and horsemanship.

Please note that my conference period is 10:10 to 10:40.  Usually, I am not able to check emails until after dismissal. I will reply to your message within 24 hours.

Thank you for entrusting your students into my care. I will strive to ensure that they are successful.

Fall Festival Needs

Each year, 6th Grade raises money to reduce the cost of the student tickets to Medieval Times by holding a cake walk during the Fall Festival.  We rely on donated baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, or any other pastry. 
 
We also contribute to and share in the proceeds from the concession stand. We need at least 3 parents to volunteer to take a 30-minute shift at the concession stand.  6th Grade's contribution to the food to be sold is pre-popped popcorn.  Please donate the large bags of pre-popped popcorn and/or plastic solo-type cups to serve the popcorn in.

The week of 10/09/17 is CFA week.  The 2-day Math CFA will be completed today, Wednesday.  The Reading CFA is today and the Science CFA is tomorrow.
