I am excited to report that our three schools are doing very well in many areas according to the state’s evaluation tool. It takes a lot of people working together with kids as the primary focus to make a successful school. Our elementary has done some amazing things in the last few years that have created improvement beyond belief. North Summit Elementary was recognized as the school with the highest improvement marks in the state in the area of reading. Helping students reach grade level in reading has been the focus of our great people in that school.
Our middle school continues to perform remarkably well. Not only are they outscoring other schools in the state, but also other schools across the state are calling and visiting our middle school to learn how they can improve their schools to be like ours. The middle school has also added some electives to the schedule. Coding, art, and drama have enhanced the schedule for our students there.
The high school continues to be a place where our programs are thriving. If students want to have a great experience, there are so many opportunities for them at North Summit High School. For a school our size, we do a lot of awesome things. When the state’s school grades are released, I am confident that we will be pleased with the results. The unfortunate thing with the school grading factors is that they do not take into account all of the outstanding things happening in our schools that make a difference in the lives of kids.
Academic success lies with supportive families and prepared, caring adults at our schools. Our teachers, staff and administrators should be commended for their tireless efforts in helping our students reach new heights on a daily basis. I am excited about the accomplishments of our schools, but I am most proud of the way our people care for the kids in this district. We belong to a district that truly values the worth of each young person attending our schools. Our community deserves a huge pat on the back for the top-notch support of all of our programs. We will never have enough parking because of the crowds that come to cheer on our kids. That is a good problem to have.
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.
