CAN I GET A SHOUT OUT?

Warms my heart!


The following e-mail below was sent to Mrs. Skaggs this week! The e-mail speaks to what we have created at Summit with our Mod/Cog program, Leadership Teachers and Students, and the climate of our school. #WEARESUMMIT #weembrace #weinclude

Thank you Cathy, Kim, Maralee, Daesha, Speech Paths, Psych, and Elective Teachers! You totally are making this a reality at Summit!



"Last night at church, a kid named Joshua was saying hi to Kam in the hall. He told me he is in Mrs. Prentice’s class with her…such a cool young man, too. Not long after that, a really tall boy (had to have been 8th grader) was talking to Kinley in the hall. Kam said he is in leadership. It’s so much fun seeing these young ones out in the community initiating conversations with the girls (no prompting, not doing it because I was standing there, etc)."


Have a great day!

Parent Teacher Conferences Night One #SUCCESS

The first night was a huge success. Loved seeing everyone engaged with parents and students. Usage of the electronic devices was a nice touch. Parents were very complimentary of the chance to our set-up. This was possible due to our decrease in student enrollment and core teachers not having to work in different grade levels and different teams. Thank you!


Monday will be just as wonderful!

Summarization & Generalization Teacher Strategy

Please click on the link below, as it has Marzano's Academic Vocabulary List by Content Area and by Grade Level. Take a glance at the words for the surrounding grade levels, as it is a great strategy to incorporate words which should already be known, and words that students will need to be successful in the future.

????How are you EXPLICTLY TEACHING the words in your class?

????Do you have a PROGRESSIVE WORD WALL?

????Is the language of the teacher and the student ENRICHED WITH ACADEMIC VOCABULARY during the classperiod?

????Are you including VOCABULARY QUIZZES in you assessment planning for students?

????When there is a writing prompt or GIST to explain a concept, has there been a RUBRIC CREATE to provide points for ACADEMIC VOCABULARY WORDS?

These are suggestions to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom.


If you have other ideas of how to utilize the vocabulary words in your classroom, please share!

QUOTATION OF IMPLEMENTATION

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!" ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

SOMETIME IN THE NEAR FUTURE

Teachers, sometime in the near future please reserve the i-pad cart and utilize in your classroom for a project. The district would like us to do this, to identify areas where the internet signal is problematic. Please report any difficulties to April so that she can notify the district office.

Thank you!

Preliminary A-F School Report Card 2016

The Preliminary A-F School Report Card just released yesterday has Summit as an 90%A-

There are 10 days from yesterday where we can sift through the accuracy of the data and make any appeals necessary for correction.

If the report card is accurate, it will be the first time since the A-F Report Card started in Oklahoma, Summit is an A-, but it's still an A!!!


Congratulations! #WEARESUMMIT!
