Letter from The Director • September 10, 2017

Dear Shasta Families,

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. Thanks in advance for your support!

In addition, we were so excited to see Summit Shasta featured on several local TV stations and newspapers this week leading up to last Friday’s XQ Super School Live event! To check out the articles and news clips, please visit the Summit Shasta facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SummitShasta/. We are working to include all of the most up-to-date updates of our school on that page.Best,
Wren and Ava

SPOT Meeting on Tuesday, September 12 will focus on the Platform
At our first Shasta Parent Organizing Team (SPOT) meeting of the year, we will use the time to train all parents on our Summit Learning Platform. The training begins at 6 PM and offers families an opportunity to explore our learning platform, understand our grading system, and learn how to keep track of student progress at school. We will have some chromebooks available but if you have your own device, feel free to bring it!

Club Fair will be Friday, September 15 at 2 PM
We are excited to launch Summit Shasta clubs this week with our annual club fair! On Friday, September 15th in the afternoon, we will have a club fair, where all students will be able to sign up for clubs and see which clubs are offered at Shasta.

If students want to start a new club (one that has not existed previously at Shasta), they should:

  1. Make a copy of this document
  2. Complete it
  3. Share it with Ms. Petrash (apetrash@summitps.org). She will then follow up with students regarding next steps for establishing clubs here at Shasta.

If a student club existed last year, this form must be completed. The club will not be registered (and will not be able to participate in the club fair) until this form has been completed and the responses have been confirmed by Ms. Petrash. 

Senior Portraits: Inform for the Class of 2018
On Thursday, September 21st and Friday, September 29th, formal senior portraits will be taken after school from 3:30-8:00 PM in the theater of the Jefferson Union High School District building. Members of the Class of 2018 will receive information about these portraits in the mail with a specific date and time assigned for the portrait. Please let Delvy Escobar (descobar@summitps.org) know if you have other questions!
