Summit Academy Independence Principal’s Message

I want to start out tonight with a GIANT thank you for everyone who made Fall Festival a success and for all of you who were able to attend. It was a lot of fun to be together. I want to give an extra shout out to our coordinator, Melissa Henderson, and her committee chairs: Rachael Smith, Kassie Bruegger, Gracia Mangrum, Celeste Knight, Shawna Perez, Cara Bills, James Taylor, and Amy Hawkins. Thank you sincerely for creating a night of fun that both builds our community and helps the school.

We are also grateful for all those who signed-up to donate food for our dedicated, hardworking teachers. Thank you! 

Our book fair volunteers are working hard this week also. I just checked with our coordinator. and we need five more volunteers, especially for take-down early Thursday evening. I know we have been asking for a lot of help this past week, but if a few of you can jump in the following link to fill those spots we could really use your help:  Volunteers earn $5.00 in Scholastic dollars for every 2 hours that you volunteer.

Dental students from Roseman University College of Dental Medicine will be coming to perform FREE DENTAL SCREENINGS during Parent Teacher Conferences. If you are interested, please plan extra time but no appointment is needed.

Details on parent teacher conferences Wednesday and Thursday of this week are below. Our goal is to meet with all families! We love students to attend when possible. For German DLI, we ask that the fall conference be with parents only and students join in the Spring. Please note we have early release on Thursday; all students will be released at 1:10 p.m. (Morning kindergarten releases at 10:20 am.) No shuttle runs on early release days.  

One last note, everyone is getting the hang of our end of day loading and being kind to one another, but we need vehicles to enter from Noell Nelson Drive turning right into our back driveway rather than trying to turn left. That will keep the flow and get everyone through more quickly! 

P.S. In honor of the storm today and for those who noticed me barefoot today during loading (my sandals were just too slippery), I am going to end my message with one of my favorite quotes, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” –Vivian Greene

Thank you for being a part of our lives and allowing us to be a part of yours!
