Weekly Update From Mr. Winterberger

Summerside Families,

We are closing in on our first full week of school and I couldn’t be more proud of what our students, staff, volunteers, and families have accomplished together as a Team.  We are off to a great academic start. The Academic Work taking place in our classrooms daily will be our priority focus during the school year.  Our Staff’s charge is to provide engaging academic lessons that challenge and excite your children about learning.  I have been in multiple classrooms daily and we are right on track.

Many new improvements have been added in the West Clermont Schools to provide opportunities for our students and families. We have much to be excited about! We have added 45 minutes of academic time to this year’s school day, which we are committed to using wisely to increase student learning.  We now have on-site before and after school extended daycare, which is an excellent option for our working parents who need child care.  More good news!  A special thank you to Child Focus who operates this quality program. We also have added K-Plus as an option for families who have Kindergartens. Another new quality option!  Last but not least, we will add back Art, Music, and Gym for grades 1-5 on a rotating basis one week per month. We are excited about this for our kids! The week of September 8th will be our first rotation. For your planning purposes, First Graders will have Specials on Monday, Sept 8th, Second will have Specials on Tuesday, September 9th, Third will have Specials on Wednesday, September 10th, Fourth on September 11th,  and Fifth on September 12th.
