Dear Families,

Thanks to those who helped make our Community Potluck on Friday evening a great success!  It was a warm gathering of families that also included a student raffle for prizes from the Book Fair and the grand prize - the opportunity to pie Ms. Mohnkern and Mr. Bielecki!


This upcoming week before the Thanksgiving break, as well as the week after the break, will be very busy for students and teachers.  Continue encouraging your child to reflect on their successes and their struggles, and advise them on seeking help from their mentor or project teacher if needed.

Office Hours:
Office Hours on Monday and Wednesday afternoons will look a bit different between now and January.  Teachers will be facilitating workshops based on specific focus areas in math and English.  These workshops are designed for students who have attempted, but not passed certain focus areas.  The family’s role in this process is to look at the Calendar of Playlist Support that teachers will update every week and make plans for your child to stay for the workshop if he or she needs the support.  Students who do not need support in these specific focus areas will have PLT and content assessments with other teachers.

For pick-up, DO NOT use any neighboring parking lots, and do not park in the street.  Remember, you have a long window of being able to pick up, even on Fridays (until 4pm).  Please communicate with your child or carpool about expected times of pickup.

Online Payment System:
Between now and Sunday, November 22, families can sign up for Summit’s online payment system.  If you didn’t sign up at the beginning of the year, this is your chance.  This will be the last round of sign-ups for the 15-16 school year.  Here is the link to the Google Form: Parent Account Signup Form

There will be a meeting for parents of girls who will be playing Denali Girls' Basketball this season, on Weds. November 18th from 7:00-8:00pm at Denali. Paperwork needs to be turned in as soon as possible, and before practices start, Monday December 7th, in order for your student to participate in practices. Practices will be Mon., Tues., and Thurs. mornings, from 6:40-7:55am (This is when the gymnasium is available).  All families currently participating or interested in Denali athletics should bookmark the new athletics website.  Coach J will update this regularly with schedules and other information.
