The XQ Student Voice Project is coming to Summit Shasta!

As you may know, last year Summit Shasta was named one of the 18 XQ Super Schools across the country. The XQ Super Schools are a set of diverse schools with one thing in common- we are all working to rethink high school and ensure that we are truly preparing our students for the careers of the future.  The Student Voice Project is an opportunity for students who attend the XQ schools to share their stories.  This is an opportunity to tell the world why you love Summit Shasta!  XQ wants to hear from you.  Learn more about the project here.  The submission deadline is 1/12/2018.  All students who submit an entry will receive some cool XQ swag.  If you have questions about the project, contact Leslie Eme- leme@summitps.org.
