Letter from The Director • September 3, 2017

Dear Shasta Families,

Thank you so much to all of the families that joined us for our first parent event of the year: Pathway to College Presentation and Back to School Night! We really enjoyed seeing so many families on campus and appreciate your partnership in getting the year off to a great start. If you would like to review the presentation from Back to School Night, please visit our parent portal website. For more information on the college process, please visit our college website.

This year at Summit Shasta, we are starting a new school tradition known as “First Friday.” On the First Friday of each month with regular instruction, we will hold All School Assemblies to celebrate community members for their amazing work and to have fun together as an entire school. This past Friday, we kicked off our first celebration with some grade level competitions and Black Bear of the Month Awards. At lunch, Operations Manager Sergio Suarez kept the energy high with music and dancing outside in the middle of campus. Congratulations to the following students who were recognized as the September Black Bear of the Month Award Winners for their excellence in the Summit Shasta core characteristics of compassion, courage, curiosity, integrity, respect, and responsibility:

9th Grade: Massimo Sibillo and Abigail Wong
10th Grade: Chris Edrosolo and Kai Smith
11th Grade: Erica Colomer and Gabriel Ramos
12th Grade: Gabe Dao-Pick and Anthony Laws

We look forward to celebrating more students at our next celebration on Friday, October 20th!

As a reminder, there is no school tomorrow on Monday, September 4th. We hope all families have a restful and fun three-day weekend!

Wren and Ava

We Need Your Support to Renew Summit Shasta’s Charter!
This fall we will submit our petition to Jefferson Union High School District (JUHSD) for the renewal of Summit Shasta’s charter. We are required to go through the charter renewal process every 5 years in order to continue operating Summit Shasta as a free public charter school. We need strong family support in order to ensure a successful charter renewal. Read more information on the charter renewal process HERE. Sign up to attend a JUHSD Board Meeting HERE.
