Weekly Update from Mr. Winterberger

Hello Summerside Family!

We have just completed a banner week at Summerside Elementary which kicked off with our Right to Read Week.  One special gift all educators receive is being a part of teaching a child how to read and honing those reading skills which will have a huge impact on each Child' academic future.  Reading is the platform for all future academic success and it is our top priority at Summerside.  Likewise, I view everyone at Summerside as a Reading Teacher.  That includes all of our Staff, Parents, Grandparents and others who are part a child's life.   Everyone can make an impact and we are at our best when we work as a Team.   Right to Read Week will be featured in this edition of the eCommunication.  A special thank you to our Title 1 Reading Teachers (Kendra Alexander and Ellen Beavers) who designed our Right to Week activities for our students this week!

West Clermont High School Ground Breaking


Weekly Update from Mr. Winterberger

Hello Summerside Families,

We are closing in on the last Student School Day for the 2014-2015 School Year (which is Thursday May 28th).  It's hard to believe how fast this year flew by.  I want to thank everyone for the support and teamwork in making this a excellent year for our children at Summerside Elementary.  

Our Classrooms are humming right along during the month of May.  The classrooms are the "Hub" of our school and I will continue to provide you snapshots of the important work taking place there.  Mr. Wilson's 3rd Grade Students are studying Geology and they did an experiment in which they had to sift sandy soil and rocks. Students then sorted the rocks by their properties and observed what the sand and silt did in water. This mimics how sedimentary rocks are formed by layers of sediment being changed into rock by water pressure.  Nice work Mr. Wilson and our 3rd Grade Geologist!

Weekly Update from Mr. Winterberger

Hello Summerside Families!

We closed out the month of April with a strong academic week in our classrooms and are powering up academically for the month of May.  The month of May is an important month in our school and is a key time of year to engage in rigorous work in our classrooms.  I stopped in multiple classrooms this week at Summerside and am very pleased with our focus.  One of the classrooms I want to highlight in this edition of the eCommunication is Miss Armstrong's third grade classroom.
