Dear Summit School Families,
Wow! We just completed the 2022 – 2023 school year. It has been great to get back to doing our fun and engaging Summit fieldwork and adventure. We want to thank our Summit Community for the support to make these activities happen. The staff members at Summit know how important our families are to the success of the school. Your support throughout the year is integral in the success of our students. Without the great parent support, we could not have the field work and adventure activities that we enjoy. There are many different ways to support Summit. If you are interested in helping in some way, please reach out to your classroom teacher. A big thanks, also, goes out to our Summit PAC for all they do to support our work at Summit. Their work behind the scenes is integral in our success.
This year we began implementing a new math curriculum in both the K – 5 and 6 – 8 grade bands. We are excited for this new opportunity. The feedback from teachers and students has been positive. If you have an elementary student, ask about Number Corner at dinner some time. Number corner is in addition to our core math lessons. These are fun activities that may not even seem like math.
Our collaboration time this year was a balance of implementing the new math curriculum and looking at student data across ELA, Math and Social Emotional Learning (SEL). This data is important as we track student growth in these areas. Our entire staff is dedicated to improving student learning for all our students as we look at the whole child.
