Principal's Corner

Dear Summit Road STEM Families,

I hope that everyone had a great winter break and found time to rest and relax with family and friends. We welcome students back on Thursday January 3 for a new semester and new learning experiences! Report cards for the 2nd quarter will go home with students on Friday January 11. Please read through this newsletter to learn about additional upcoming events and important dates at our school.

On Wednesday January 23 from 6 - 7 pm we will host an evening for parents and families of 3rd grade students to share results from the fall 2018 3rd grade Ohio State Test in English Language Arts. At this meeting, we will discuss the Ohio Third Grade Reading Guarantee, discuss ways to support your student between now and the spring 2019 English Language Arts test that all 3rd graders will take in April, and answer any additional questions you may have. Please plan to join us, but if you are unable, score reports will be sent home with students the next day (January 24).

Thank you for all of your support in the first half of the school year and I look forward to an awesome second half. On behalf of the staff at Summit Road STEM Elementary, we wish you happy 2019!

Mr. Menhorn
