Principal's Message

Summit Families,
I hope you and your family are well. Can you believe we are 23 days away from the start of the 2020-2021 school year?  As we continue to track COVID-19, we are adequately working to ensure anyone that selects the option for in-person school is safe and healthy. Also, for the families that choose virtual learning, we are working to ensure the transition is seamless and those scholars to receive the education they desire and deserve. We have a few updates as we move through the latter part of our summer:
Summer Reading List:
·         Incoming 5th Graders- Courage Has No Color
·         Incoming 6th Graders- The House of Dies Drear
Assignments associated with each summer reading book can be found on the school website. Click on the academic tab and then select summer reading. Summer reading assignments are due for the first grade in the grade book by Monday, August 10, 2020.
