Dear Summit Families, 

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and the Board of Directors, it is my honor to welcome you to Summit for the 2021-2022 school year! 

I want to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all Summit teachers, staff, students and family members who have persevered with us through the pandemic. Your effort, support, and achievement has kep us motivated and inspired. We are very optimistic about returning to a more normal school year, as such we are moving forward with our typical academic programming. We will still have pandemic protocols in place to ensure safety, and continue with attention to community health conditions and guidelines. 

It has been a very long time since we operated school the “usual way”, and we expect an adjustment period as we revive our enriching school culture and support school climate. We are so excited to welcome our new and returning Summit families. Our school mission of rigorous academics sets high expectations for effort and achievement. It also calls on us to be a caring community, foster self-esteem, and instill a love of learning. Our caring relationships and high levels of student support propel Summit students to meet the highest academic expectations and standards. 

This year, like all others past, our inspiring faculty, wise administration, and dedicated staff will bring our mission of academic rigor and our values of a caring community to life with our amazing students. I cannot wait to be there for many magical moments of learning and growth as I enter my second decade as a school leader at this incredible school. 

My top priorities for this school year include: the physical and social emotional health of our school community, mitigating pandemic impacts on families, and reawakening our award winning educational program. 

As always, my highest priority is to lead the school in a way that promotes trust, strengthens community, and places student learning and well-being ahead of all else. Summit Middle School provides the resources for each child to succeed in the social, emotional, and intellectual aspects of school life. Please join in our efforts to sustain a high quality school where children grow and achieve to the best of their ability and potential.
