With 2018 now upon us, we at North Summit School District are proud of the many good things happening, and we are more determined than ever to fulfill our commitment to the students in each of our schools. We see the potential in all of our kids and want them to reach as far as they can. We have a great staff of adults who genuinely care for students. I admire our teachers and support staff for their efforts and their dedication to their professions. We also have supportive parents and grandparents who understand the importance of the educational experience, and we are appreciative of their support.
Several of our patrons volunteer on various committees in each of the schools and contribute a great deal to our progress. Our faithful PTO volunteers are strong and provide great support to the staffs in each building. This is a great organization that we all should support. We also have a Trust Land program driven by a community council, which consists of parents and teachers. Each school has a council, and these councils are responsible for the disbursement of between $60,000 to $80,000 per year. This money is directed to academic programs for the benefit of students. They are diligent in using the money in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
We also have a group of folks who serve on our Reading Foundation Committee. These are dedicated parents/grandparents who understand the need for children to be read to from birth to the third grade. We strongly encourage parents, siblings, and grandparents to read to a child for twenty minutes every day. The difference we can make in the life of a child in only a small part of our day is immeasurable. If we would all accept this challenge, we would be giving all of our children the boost they need for a brighter future. We are truly all in this together.
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.
