Principal's Message

A new year has arrived and with it the opportunity to make a difference. I can assure you, our staff, students, and families will work together as a team to do just that. Teaching and learning will be our key focus at Summerside Elementary and I am confident great things are in store for our learning community. The "hub" of Summerside School is the classroom and the important work taking place there each and every day to ensure our students achieve at the highest level. Reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies are key content areas all students will master.

The time our staff invests in our children is precious and limited. Our teaching team will make certain the school day is focused on what counts. What counts is that our Summerside students are at or above grade level in their reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies mastery of the Ohio Learning Standards, which is the foundation for future school and most importantly future employment success. We will prepare our students to compete and win academically. I'm proud of our students and they deserve the best!

Anything worthwhile takes hard work. There is no magic to success, rather consistent effort focused over a sustained period of time doing the right things rewards us with success. In 2017-2018 our teaching staff will provide the rigorous academic work in the key academic areas to ensure each and every student achieves to their fullest potential. There is much work to do and we need all hands on deck. I'm confident that together we can make 2017-2018 our best year yet at Summerside Elementary.

As we prepare to launch the 2017-18 school year these are exciting times at the West Clermont School District .  Our new High School will open, our Middle School will open, and there are key District Goals which will serve as our compass for decision making. We are a West Clermont Family! The three District Goals are listed below and will be our priority one focus in 2017-18:

  • Courageous Culture
  • Academic Achievement
  • Future Ready

We are excited about the upcoming school year and the opportunities to work hand in hand with our Stakeholders to make a difference. I am here to serve you. 

In the meantime, our staff is here to serve our community and communication will be a key element to success. Feel free to contact me on my direct cell line at (513) 373-5735 Monday-Sunday.

Let's make a difference!!

Best regards,

Bob Winterberger
