Around Our School

A Note From The Principal

Kids Heart Challenge (Jump Rope For Heart) February 20 and 21

It's time for the Kids Heart Challenge and it's time for Scott Teays to regain its title as the #1 school in the state!  Scott Teays has a long history of contributing to the American Heart Association.   Our contributions help fund research for heart disease and strokes.  It also funds programs to teach our children the importance of staying fit and eating healthy. 


Our school receives educational materials, jump ropes, and gift certificates for P.E. equipment based on how much we raise.  This event is especially important in building school spirit and it helps teach our children the importance of volunteering and giving back to the community.  


All we ask is that your child brings in or contributes online at least a $5.00 donation to participate.  Checks should be made payable to The American Heart Association, or AHA.  Online donations can be made at and by following the instructions on the collection envelope.  You can also download the Kids Heart Challenge App.  If possible, please make your donations by Feb.18 to allow us to process the information before the event takes place.  Students receive prizes based on the amount of donations they collect.  All students who collect an online donation of at least $10.00 will earn a free ticket to the Cincinnati Reds versus the Colorado Rockies on June 26th.


Thank you in advance for allowing your child to participate.


Illness and the Spread of Infection

Flu cases in our area are on the rise.  Please join us in reminding your child to wash his or her hands often.   Please keep your child home if they have thrown up, had diarrhea, or a fever of 100 or higher during the past 24 hours.  Thank you for helping us stay healthy!

             When sharing Valentines, please bring one for every child in the classroom.

             Candy is not permitted to accompany Valentines due to allergies and food guidelines (Valentines only, please).

             We do not accept flower/balloon deliveries due to inadequate space and transportation home.
