Approaching the Start of the 2019-2020 School Year
Another summer has come and is almost gone. However, we are excited for another school year to begin. I have already seen many teachers and staff at the schools preparing for another successful year. Our community is fortunate to have people in our district who do all of the extra things to make school better for our kids.
One of the important factors that teachers are always looking for is student growth. Not every student enters school on the same playing field. With different levels of readiness, it becomes necessary for them to monitor progress as the school year moves forward. That is an extremely hard task for teachers. They will collaborate throughout the year to improve instruction and to discuss methods that will promote student growth. Teachers monitor student progress frequently during the year and design instruction to promote further improvement. We appreciate this kind of effort because it is all about the individual child.
For struggling students, we will continue to provide intervention tools to help them get up to grade level standards. For advanced students, we will challenge them to reach their full potential. This is a large undertaking, and it will take enormous effort on the part of everyone involved, but we will do everything we can to help each one succeed.
Also, please be aware that if you think you might qualify for free or reduced lunch, you can sign up with Robin Wilde, and she will help you with the paper work. We encourage all that might qualify to do this as it provides more funding for our lunch program. We serve the best lunch in the state.
I wish everyone the best for another great school year.
We at North Summit School District are committed to providing parents and students with accurate and prompt information in the event of school closures or other urgent matters impacting our schools and community. Depending on the type of emergency situation, the district utilizes the following methods of communication: direct telephoning, information placed on the district's website at www.nsummit.org, emailing, cell phones, emergency radios- between schools and the district office. Keeping parents informed helps to assure student safety and provides peace of mind. In an effort to improve communications with our families, we are requesting that all parents Like our Facebook page, North Summit School District, and friend North Summit. Facebook is a very great tool for getting information out quickly. We also suggest that you update your personal information including address, email, home and cell phone numbers for anyone you would want contacted in the event of a school closure or emergency. Sometimes this information is updated at one school for one child, but does not always get changed on all students in the same family. Please help us by contacting the schools or district office if you feel your information may be out of date.
