Summit Learning
Habits of Success are the social and emotional skills that enable students to be successful at both academic and non-academic pursuits. These include the skills to become a self-directed learner.

Summit Learning uses a Self-Directed Learning Cycle in its curriculum to help students prepare for life before and after graduation. This process promotes student development and autonomy in learning. With classrooms designed to promote self-direction, students learn and deliberately practice how to learn.
In the Self-Directed Learning Cycle, teachers work with students to:
  • reflect on what they've learned
  • set goals for what they want to learn
  • plan for how they will reach their goals
  • learn new facts, skills, or ideas
  • show or demonstrate their learning, then reflect

By practicing and developing self-direction, students build skills and habits they can apply in life well beyond graduation. This gives students a sense of empowerment that keeps them motivated and engaged. Eventually — with support — students internalize the Self-Directed Learning Cycle, giving them a foundation for success.
Attention Student Drivers
To all student drivers: If you don’t have an assigned parking space, DO NOT just park in any numbered space. Numbered parking spaces are for those who have already applied for a spot. We have been notified by various students and teachers that unauthorized students have been parking in their spaces. If you want an assigned parking space, please see Mrs. Bennhoff in the high school main office. There is no charge for parking spaces.
Creating a PowerSchool Account
When you create a parent account in powerschool you gain access to your child(ren) grades, attendance, fee balances and so much more. You can also access Returning Student Registration (InfoSnap) through powerschool. Completing your child(ren) emergency contact information is vital to us here at the school in case of an emergency. Click here for a quick guide on how to create a parent account. As always - if you have any questions, reach out to your school office.
Mindful Mondays

Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.
 
What?
Mindfulness refers to a set of practices, certain habits of mind - as well as a general way of being in life.
 
Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind.
 
Another way to say it - mindfulness is paying attention to your life here and now with kindness and curiosity.

When + How?
Mindfulness can be done during sitting meditation, movement activities such as running, walking or yoga and even while eating, doing school work or during other typical daily moments.
Beginning on December 7th, join Mrs. Cory each Monday morning at 8:15 am to learn how to use mindfulness as a way to help with the challenges present in your daily life. Meet details below!
 
Why?
Mindfulness practices in schools have been shown to improve students’ emotional well-being, academic performance and relationships.
