3rd Grade Guarantee Meeting

Dear Parents of Third Grade Students at Summerside,

We are off to a great start and I could be more proud of your children in our classrooms.  One item across the State of Ohio that is unique to just Third Grade is the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.  In a nutshell it is a piece of legislation that requires public schools to assess all 3rd grade students in reading in the Fall and again in the Spring.  Students must pass the 3rd grade reading test to move on to 4th grade next year in reading.

Our focus at Summerside is to make sure we prepare all of our student this year to pass the 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee.  100% of our students passed last year.  I am inviting all parents of 3rd graders to a meeting this Wednesday at 7:00PM if you would like more information about the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.  This will be open forum session where I will provide you detailed and information regarding the reading guarantee and  provide time for our families to ask any question you may have about it.

This meeting is optional and is just another opportunity for anyone who would like more information.  In them meantime I have attached information to ensure our families are well educated on this high stakes test.  If you have any questions after reading this letter don't hesistate to call me on my direct cell line at 373-5735.  Have a super day!!

Safe Schools; ALiCE Training

“Schools are some of the safest places for our children because most schools practice evacuation drills for fires and protective measures for tornadoes,” said West Clermont School District Superintendent Keith Kline. “However, just like practicing monthly fire drills, it’s important that staff knows how to respond in the very unlikely event of an armed intruder,” he added.
