When you ask the teachers at Scotts Mills what makes their school special, they are quick to answer…it’s everything!
“The community works together to raise these kids,” said Sara Obrist, kindergarten teacher. “Parents and families support teachers, staff members support each other and big kids take care of littles.”
Michelle Stadeli, who teaches grades 6 and 7 at Scott Mills agrees.
“It takes a village mentality and that’s what we have here,” said Stadeli. “The older kids even check in with the teachers to see how they can help.”
According to Scotts Mills Principal Marilyn Annen, it’s hard to pick just one thing that makes the school special.
“There are a lot of special things about Scotts Mills,” said Annen. “The staff, the kids, the community, the fact that we are a K-8 school.
But one of the things that really stands out is the support we get from parents and families. They are very active and involved and they do a lot for our school.”
