Today we had a wonderful assembly with speaker Tyler Durman! He spoke with students about how to make good choices in such an engaging way. If you would like to learn more about him and what message he is sharing with students, here is the link to his website:

2/6-2/8: We will be heading up to 6th grade camp at Pali Mountain in Running Springs (about 45 minutes away from Summit) this week!! Please be sure to check the camp packing list sent home with your child for information about the camp as well as what to pack for the three days. If you need another camp packet with information, those can be picked up in our office during school hours. I am so excited to go and I hope the kids are too.
***If your child is not going to Pali Mountain and is staying at Summit for these three days, they are still required to come to school at the regular time 7:40. They will also have a fun three days of science based, outdoor activities right on our campus.***

Thursday 10/25: Jean Day! (I am a “jean” ius, I don’t do drugs.) This Wednesday’s lunchtime activity will be a Fang-tastic tongue twisters: One person from each class will be given an pair of fangs to wear while reciting tongue twisters.

Today I will be sending home a report for each student that has missing assignments. Please review this with your child, sign it, and have them return it to me Monday 10/22. The last day I will take any make-up work from students is Thursday 10/25. Reminder: for every day an assignment is late, it gets deducted 10% off the total grade. At this point, if an assignment is more than 5 days late, they will receive 50% total. I want your children to be successful students so I'm hoping they will embrace this opportunity to turn in any missing work.
If there is an assignment on there that your child insists that they turned in to me, please have them check with me to ensure I didn't make a mistake.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Reminder: Last day for students to take an A.R. quiz that will be counted towards their trimester report card will be 
Thursday 10/25. ​ Please help your student check Renaissance Place to see how many points they are away from meeting their goal, and use this week and weekend to catch up if need be.

Reminder: Completed Mummy Books are due Wednesday 10/3 at the beginning of social studies.

REMINDER: please make sure your child can come with you. We will be conducting a student-led conference, meaning your child will be discussing their progress during this year so far. At the end, I will also provide other information about how their year is going and give you a chance to ask me questions as well :)

Hello there!

I know some parents were unable to make it to Back to School Night on Wednesday, so I am putting a link here so that you are able to view the slideshow presentation from the evening.

Also, there is a link to a Google Doc that lists all of the available dates and times for parent/teacher conferences for the last week of September. If you signed up on Back to School Night, then you are already on my list. If not, then please click the link, find a date and time that works for you, and email me the information listed on the page.

When it gets closer to the date, I will post a link to my schedule for the week of conferences as a reminder for your scheduled date/time.

If you have any questions for me, please don't hesitate to email :)
