Hello Summerside Families,
As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, I tend to reflect on the many things to be thankful for: our families, our close friends, the community we live in, our school community, and the people who make a difference in our lives with a simple kind word. I want to wish everyone a fun-filled upcoming Thanksgiving vacation. There will be no school for students on November 26, November 27, and November 28th. Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving with your family.
We have had a great week of Teaching and Learning at Summerside. Our work ethic is strong heading into the Thanksgiving break and I couldn't be more proud of our staff, students, volunteers, and our PTO. Typically, I showcase a classroom every week. However, this week I want to showcase that "kids learn from teachers; and teachers learn from kids"! Last week, we had a training session where one of our teachers (Mrs.Karen Kunkel) taught a lesson to a small group of students while several of our teachers observed the process to hone their teaching delivery, to use Junior Great Books effectively with the skills groups and to challenge their students in the classroom.
