 6th grade email - September 2018

Dear Parents, 

Please join us next week, Thursday, September 20th from 5-7 for a Summit Parents Happy Hour at The Barrel -- 29th Street Mall (outdoor bar in the upstairs plaza in front of Century Theaters where the skating rink is in the winter).  We'll be socializing and serving free appetizers along side The Barrel's cash bar.  Come meet new ones at this purely social event. Please RSVP here by Monday, 9/17, so that we can give the venue their requested headcount.

Parent Teacher Conferences are coming October 10th and 11th. These are very long days for the teachers so we help keep their energy up by providing meals for them.  If you are able to help feed the teachers, please go to HelpAtSchool to sign up.

Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled from 1-7pm on October 10th and 1-6 pm on October 11th.  We will be using HelpAtSchool again to allow you to schedule conferences with up to 3 core teachers and an additional 3 elective teachers. Please look for an email from HelpAtSchool with your direct link on Thursday, September 27th at 6pm. In addition, if your child is TAG identified, you can meet with Laura Glaab or Joe Gutierrez to discuss their ALP.

Make the most of your time with each teacher by coming prepared with any questions you have for them so that teachers can address them within the time frame you have.  

It's not too late to join 6th and 7th grade boys basketball! Basketball started last Wednesday, but students can sign up here until 9amon September 17th. This is great chance for your sons to play some low key basketball. Practice takes place after school Mondays/Wednesdays/Thursdays and Fridays (except on half days or no school days) until 4:30pm and ends with a tournament onOctober 3rd. Students cannot practice until they are registered! 

Special call-out to 6th grade parents: Parent Connections needs you! Parent Connections is Summit's equivalent to a PTA (Parent-Teacher Association). The next PC meeting will take place on Wednesday, 9/26 @ 8 am. Not only is this a great way to support our kids and their school, but it's also a great way to learn the ropes as a Summit parent, connect with others in the community and have fun all the while. Look for signs as you enter the building for meeting location.
