Greetings Summerour Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I want to personally thank you all for your support and devotion to OUR students! The year is off to a great start and we are committed to seeing our students grow each and every day. At Summerour, we strive to create partnerships between home and school so our students can be distinguished learners! We have published our tutoring schedule to ensure we are providing time and opportunity for our students. Did you know that students can retake any assessment as long as they attend tutoring first? We believe in second chances!
Our IB Learner Profile of the month is Thinkers. How can we all be better Thinkers? We can devote quiet time to studying and problem solving. We can also be Thinkers by analyzing and evaluating. Ask your child how they are thinking deeply each day at school.
This month we will be celebrating World Peace Day on September 20. This year the focus will be on Climate Action and thinking of ways we can better protect our natural resources. Students will be learning about the impact of natural disasters on countries, economies, and people groups. The goal is to raise awareness in OUR Future leaders of tomorrow.
Please don’t hesitate to email or call the school with anything you need. We have a Parent Center that is open after 1 p.m. daily to help you engage with your child’s school. We appreciate all you do, as Summerour parents and families, to make sure your child is on the right track with regard to their schooling.
Your Principal, Dr. Natalie A. Looney
