Dear Summit Washington Community,
• Sierra and Olympus will grow to full 9th – 12th grade high schools! This means we will have our first graduating classes at Olympus and Sierra in 2019. With dedicated faculty, families and students, we are on our way to seeing nearly 100 percent of students being accepted to college.
• Summit Atlas will add more grades and families, growing to a 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th grade middle and high school.
• Welcome new faculty members to our growing school communities.
We also wanted to take this time to reflect on this year and want to express our gratitude to you – our families, faculty and surrounding communities – for all you have done to help prepare our students for success in college and life, as well as becoming contributing members of our community.
The center of Summit Public Schools’ work every day is our amazing students. They have grown so much this past year and have shown compassion and empathy to the communities our schools serve and their fellow students. They have given blood to help save lives, volunteered at food banks, and advocated for volunteering at community organizations. We have also seen our students grow academically as they take steps closer to being 100% college-ready by graduation day. Students have also helped tell the story of Summit’s schools and the challenges students overcome every day. They inspire us daily to be better educators and community members.
Supporting our students on the pathway to success are Summit’s families. They volunteer at our schools, help make our annual camping trips a success, and encourage students every step of the way.
The backbone of our students’ success and school culture is our faculty. They work hard to make sure every student has a personalized education to help them achieve their academic goals. Our ability to serve more students and families and provide them with a high quality education is because of their hard work.
It has been a honor to be a part of the Seattle and Tacoma communities. Thank you for continuing to welcome us with open arms and trust us with educating their children. We look forward to continuing this exciting journey as we build thriving school communities.
Have a wonderful summer!
