Shasta Bulletin: January 20, 2019

Letter from the Shasta Leadership Team

Dear Black Bear Families,

Next month, Summit Shasta will be welcoming four committee members from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Shasta is up for WASC accreditation and will be evaluated by these team members to ensure we are operating a strong and sound academic program. As part of this visit, we need parent support at two events:

  • Sunday, February 10th from 4 PM to 5 PM at Summit Shasta: A welcome reception for the committee parents. We would love for 5-10 parents to come and mix and mingle with the WASC team. Please sign up here!
  • Tuesday, February 12th from 4 PM to 5 PM at Summit Shasta: We are looking for 10-15 parents to be part of a question and answer session with the WASC team. Please sign up here!

Summit Shasta will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 21. We look forward to welcoming students back to campus on Tuesday!

Registration for Spring Sports!

Spring sports registration is now open! All students that want to participate in a spring sport MUST complete the registration form and have a completed a sports physical with your doctor (if you already have a physical on file for this year, you do not ned another one).

This spring we are looking to add Track & Field and Boys Volleyball. We have added these options to the registration form as we need to gain an understanding of how many students are interested in either sport. We must reach certain registration goals in order to move forward with a team for both sports.

We will send more information ONLY to those students that have registered to play a sport. If you are not registered and do not have a completed medical form on file, you will NOT be able to participate.

Please register for spring sports here! You can get a sports packet (including the medical form) from the front office. Registration will close on Friday,January 26. Medical forms MUST be received by Monday, January 29. If you do not complete both items, you will NOT be able to participate (NO EXCEPTIONS).

Go Black Bears!
