Weekly Update From Mr. Winterberger

A heartfelt hello from Summerside Elementary!!   We had a great academic week in our classrooms.  I couldn't be more proud this week of our staff and students.  We are rolling up our sleeves and making a difference in our classrooms.  We are focused and on target academically.  Great job everyone!

I am proud to say we lifted off with our first week of Art, Music, and Gym.  What a sight is was seeing our kids excited and back in their Unified Arts Classes!  West Clermont is on the move and this is another example of our district moving forward and making a difference.  We'll continue to strive to work hard to provide our kids with the top notch school day they deserve.   Working with your children is a gift that I do not take for granted.  It is a privilege!

Weekly Update From Mr. Winterberger

Hello Summerside Families,

We are having a great week of school at Summerside.  Our classrooms are humming right along this week.  The classrooms are the heart of our school and I have been impressed with our focus and work ethic.  A letter will be sent home with all students today which has the process that parents can apply to access 
their child's information such as interim reports, quarterly grades, and most importantly daily work.  Progress Book is your vehicle for staying in direct touch with your child's academic work at Summerside. 

One goal this time of year is to get into a nice daily flow of business, to work on jelling as a school family, and to build our academic stamina in the classroom.  The good news is we are right on track and I see our student confidence building daily.

Family is important!  As we work through the school year and the many twists and turns that occur during the year, I want everyone to know together we can tackle anything.  I want you to know I view you as family.  Our Staff cares about you and your children! 

Feel free to contact our school office if you need assistance at 947-7901 or feel free to contact me on my direct cell line at 373-5735.  Have a super weekend with your family and friends.

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.
