Summit Shasta Bulletin: November 17, 2017

Dear Shasta Families,

As we head into Thanksgiving break, we would like to take a moment to thank all of our fantastic community members who help make Summit Shasta such a wonderful place!

To our students: thank you for filling our hearts everyday with joy and hope. You are true student leaders and we are honored to be a part of your educational journey!!

To the Summit Shasta faculty: thank you for engaging our students in the tremendous power they have each day to be kind, to actively listen to other perspectives, and to foster their academic growth and learning.

And to our parents: Thank you for being our partners in educating and empowering our students to be respectful, responsible, and compassionate young leaders.  Thank you for embracing our diverse population and for your active engagement in our belief that all students, regardless of background, deserve a college prep education.

Summit Shasta will be closed Monday, November 20-Friday, November 24 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We look forward to seeing all students back at school on Monday, November 27.

Have a relaxing and fun holiday week!

Best,
Wren and Ava

COLLEGE UPDATE

Class of 2018: College Application Night

Thank you so much to all the families who supported our College Application Night this week! The night could not have happened without your unceasing dedication, love, and care for the Class of 2018.  It was such an incredibly supportive, celebratory night for our seniors and so much fun to see so many of them working so hard, getting feedback on their essays, and pressing submit. Currently, over half of our seniors have already applied to college!
