Summit Learning
Now that we’ve seen what Summit Projects look like, let’s explore the different parts of the Summit Learning Platform that your child works with daily.

Projects tend to mimic the work of people in the field or workplace. Through Projects, students develop a higher level thinking and life skills, such as critical thinking, communication and problem-solving. On some days, students may collaborate in groups or participate in whole-class discussions; on other days, students may work independently to write essays, develop lab reports or create presentations. As students work on Projects, they build towards completing Final Products that demonstrate mastery of Cognitive Skills.
You can always see more information about a Project by clicking on the Project name from the Week, Year, or the Progress sections. Each Project page provides the following information:

Essential Question: Key questions students are answering or exploring within the Project

Enduring Understanding: Key insights from the Project, which generally apply to multiple topics and situations

Description: Background on the Project and a general overview of what the student will be learning throughout the Project

Cognitive Skills: Deeper learning, critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills students will need to apply throughout the Project

Final Products: Real world, authentic work products that allow students to demonstrate their understanding of specific Cognitive Skills.

Checkpoints: Learning experiences within a project that focus on one - two cognitive skills students will need to master as they work towards the Final Product of the project they are working on. Checkpoints provide students an opportunity to receive teacher feedback on their development of the targeted cognitive skills before being assessed on the Final Product.

Focus Areas: Multimedia resources curated specifically to build course-specific content knowledge required for a student to fully engage in the class’s current project. Focus areas also consist of Content Assessments which assess a student’s understanding of the required content knowledge.
Students engage with Projects that connect the classroom to the real world. When students work in teams to apply what they're learning Projects that mimic and solve real-world problems, they develop strong collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills.

Teachers facilitate these Projects while providing students with ongoing coaching and feedback.

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Hello Fairview Park Families,

I love this community! I am lucky that I can see wonderful examples happening all over Fairview Park.

Our teachers making sure each child is getting the education they deserve! Our amazing parents are handling everything in their own houses as well as making sure their child has the tools needed to do their schooling! Our community - reaching out in so many ways - clothing, food, diapers, helping families in need with electric bills - and so many others! As we prepare for next week to begin our hybrid method - take the time to watch this recording of a webinar I attended last week - it is only 50 minutes....I felt like a million bucks when it finished!

CASEL CARES webinar, Permission To Feel for Adults. 
You can view the recording at https://youtu.be/sUhfLKzDEkA

We also invite you to explore the free resources Dr. Brackett and CASEL have put together to support your work: https://bit.ly/36adz9Q.

Now that we have been in school for over 3 weeks....parent's favorite question is...How is my child doing in school?  We can help you know the answer!  

Sign up for individual sessions to meet with a teacher to review:
*how to check your child's progress
*understand our tools like Summit, Google Classroom, etc.
