Summit Shasta Bulletin: 12/17/2017

Dear Shasta Families,

We are excited to head into the last week of classes before winter break! Our goal is for all students to be on-track in all classes by Thursday, December 21st. To be on-track, students should have no overdue projects, power focus areas should be on-track, and cognitive skill scores in each course should be a 70% or higher. Please check your student’s progress by visiting and selecting “Parents”  in the top right corner to enter your login information  For the Class of 2018, this date is particularly important because mid-year grades are sent to all colleges and universities.

To support all students in finishing the first half of the year strong, we offer the following for all students this week:

  • Classrooms open at 7:30 AM each morning for Personalized Learning Time and office hours (teachers will communicate if their course has morning office hours).
  • Office Hours on Monday, Tuesday, AND Wednesday afternoon from 3:30-5:00Any student who has an incomplete is required to be in office hours at these times.

Summit Shasta will close at 4 PM on Thursday, December 21st for winter break. We look forward to a great final week of school in 2017!

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-
