Eagle Eye Express
Dear Summit Families,
First semester has come to an end and soon students will start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, also known as May. However, we have a lot to accomplish before the end of school, and the upcoming months are some of the toughest weeks to get through. The days are short, the breaks are few and far between; the urgency to master each standard and objective fills the halls of schools across our state, Summit included.
Throughout the second semester, we will continue to make our transition to the Common Core State Standards, while at the same time work to master the current state standards in preparation for April Testing. No doubt, school is tough right now. I ask that you continue to encourage your student to make the most of each day by maximizing the time he or she has with their teacher, completing each assignment and always displaying proper behavior. These are key to having a successful school year, as well as being prepared for the yearly state assessments each spring.
In addition to testing, the second semester will also bring about some fun and exciting activities for students. During the month of February, we will participate in a variety of Double Wolf Dare Week (DWDW) activities. These activities are designed to raise funds to support the “Leash on Life” program, as well as the “Warriors for Freedom Foundation.” These efforts, in addition to the multiple contributions during our recent Operation Africa Project, truly help make a difference in the world around us.
I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing Winter Break full of family and friends. It is nice to have the students back on campus, and the halls filled with laughter and excitement. We are in for a great spring semester.
Remember, Everyone is Someone at Summit.
Desarae A. Witmer, Principal
