Scott High School freshman get a surprise at their front door

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - It has been a tradition for three years now, Scott High School teachers surprising the incoming freshman by dropping off supplies at their home.

Friday teachers filled the seats on a school bus, backpacks on and yard signs in hand to give the freshman students what they need for their first year in high school.

Scott Principal Treva Jeffries says they are proud to continue this great tradition.

"We take home proud bulldog yard signs to all our freshman students," said Jeffries. "And we have Scott HS book bags for each of our students."

Jeffries says this is the third year Scott High School has done this but this year is even more important as the district focuses on the new high schoolers.

"This is the last transition before that transition into adulthood," said Jeffries. "So it's very critical that they come in and they build a strong foundation as a young man and a young woman, so that they're productive citizens when they get out of high school and into the real world."

Freshmen are not the only ones new to their classrooms come August 26. Some of the new teachers joined in the meet and greet Friday as well.

Teacher Melissa Zanny says the reason she chose Scott for her new position was the student spirit.

"Our students need some positives in their life," said Zanny. "And to know they can make it and will make it and push them through to great careers and colleges, you know, I think you get into teaching for the students."

Freshman students will now head to class with a book pack in hand filled with everything they need to be successful students.
