You should have received an email from Summit Learning inviting you to login to the platform and see your student's information. Having your own Parent Connect account allows you to view your child's goals for the week, current grades, and dues dates for Focus Areas, Projects, and Concept Units.
When you receive the email from Summit Learning, you will only need to follow the link, watch the video, and create your own password for the account. If you do not receive an email, contact your child's homeroom teacher.
Many parents have asked for more information about navigating through the Summit learning website. Below is a link to a brief overview to help you. It’s not everything, but will hopefully give you a better understanding. Open House will be a great time to dive into the platform with your student and learn more about our Connect Program.
Thank you Ms. Castaneda for creating this overview!

Weekly Parent Connect
Below is an article of an interview with a principal, Rosemarie Young, past president of the National Association of Elementary School Principals and principal for more than 20 years at Watson Lane Elementary in Louisville, Ky. She gives tips on how parents can communicate effectively with teachers.
Talk with teachers about student progress
Interview By Lani Harac
What's the value in having good communication between parents and teachers?
It creates a partnership that benefits the child. Good communication between home and school helps both the teachers and the school do their jobs better.
And maintaining strong communication helps parents better understand teachers’ expectations for academic work and behavior. “If academic assistance is necessary,” Young says, “strong communications can facilitate support from home.” If behavior issues arise, good communication can help deal with or eliminate the inappropriate behavior.
Is communication between parents and teachers also beneficial for students?
“Definitely!” says Young. Parents who communicate effectively with the teacher are able to support their child with whatever they’re learning. Plus, getting involved communicates respect for education and the value it adds to your child’s future. Your child, meanwhile, understands that you’ll follow up and check on her progress and work.
By establishing open communication with the teacher, you can keep up with your child’s progress throughout the year—and that means fewer surprises when report card day comes around.
