In the month of November, we joined Americans across the country to celebrate Veterans’ Day. Our schools held assemblies to honor the men and women of our community, who willingly and courageously defended our freedom. It is one of my favorite assemblies of the year. It is great to watch our students learn and show appreciation for what has been done for them in the past. Thanks again to our veterans.
We also joined with the U.S Department of Education, the National PTA, the National School Board Association, and teacher and administrator associations across the county to observe American Education Week, November 13-19. This week encourages districts across the country to share their vision for students, highlight the great things happening in their schools and classrooms, and highlight the importance of community involvement and support in public education. Here in the North Summit School District, we find it fitting that we point out the District mission, vision, and values that were approved by the Board of Education a couple of years ago.
North Summit School District stands united in the pursuit of educational excellence because our students deserve a challenging, inspirational and safe learning environment that empowers each of them to grow and prepare for the future.
WE VALUE . . .
WE BELIEVE THAT . . .
Our District will be one that provides an innovative and quality education that fosters achievement and success for everyone.
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.
