Happy Holidays from the Staff at Summit Hill
We will see you on January 6th, 2015
****IMPORTANT CAFETERIA NEWS****
Parents, please know that if your child forgets their lunch and does not have money on their account, we will not let them go hungry. If something happened to their lunch box, we will not let them go hungry. Students are allowed to charge up to three meals on their account. Charge letters go out every week. Please make sure that you read these notices and take appropriate action. Once your child has reached the three meal charge limit, it is Fulton County's policy to then give that child a courtesy meal until that account is brought up to date. A courtesy meal consists of a cheese sandwich and a milk.
Free and Reduced lunch applications are available every day and may also be filled out on line. The website is: www.schoollunchapp.com. Completing the online application is very simple and the response time is usually within 24 hours. Those students receiving free lunch are also entitle to a free breakfast.
Summit Hill offers breakfast every day. We encourage everyone to eat a healthy breakfast every day to wake up their brains for learning. Our staff prepare a hot and cold breakfast every day. The breakfast menus may be found on the school website.
Lastly, MyPaymentsPlus will allow you to add money to your child's account, view their spending history, and set low-balance alerts. If you mistakenly put all of your funds onto the Meal account (which limits your child's spending to no extras) and need to move some of that money onto the General account, you need to send a note, call or email to Vonda Rice (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know how much to transfer. Unfortunately, this is not something the parents can do.
Thank you and have a Merry Holiday Season!
An Evening with Madeline Levine
With our fast and ever-changing society, students are faced with more pressures than ever before. The development of skills needed to be successful in the 21st century -- creativity, collaboration, innovation -- are not easily developed in our competitive, fast-paced, high pressure world. How can you, as a parent, help your student?

New this year: Fulton County Schools Implement Student Learning Objectives
As mandated by the state of Georgia, this year Fulton County Schools will begin implementing SLOs – Student Learning Objectives. You may have heard the term by now, but what are they and how do they impact your student?
SLOs are district-wide measurable, long-term academic SMART goals set to determine student growth. In simplest terms, SLOs are about student growth – measuring how and what a student learns in order to inform instruction and personalize learning. Students will take a pre-assessment at the beginning of the course to determine what they already know. Teachers will then use the results to plan instruction for the remainder of the course. The score students earn on the pre-assessments won't count for or against them or be factored into their overall grade in the course, but it will help their teachers plan instruction for the rest of the course in order to improve the level of learning to its highest possibility.
To find out more about SLOs and how they're being implemented in Fulton County Schools, read the SLO_QA.PDF
Through Fulton County Schools’ SPLOST funds, Summit Hill should be receiving a playground makeover during the 2014 – 2015 school year!! We are working with the county to save all the equipment purchased by our Foundation several years ago. Watch for these changes after September!

CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION
If your child is changing dismissal routines in any way, such as taking a different bus home or riding on his/her regular bus but switching stops, a note must be sent to your child's teacher upon arrival. Changes in bus routines are approved for child care purposes only, not play dates. Changes in bus stops or bus numbers must be approved in advance by both transportation and school administration.
If your child is riding home at carpool with someone other than your identified guardian or release adults, you must send a note to your child's teacher upon arrival. We need your signature and approval on any additional names of adults to whom your child can be released. The name of the person taking the child will be checked against the Emergency Contact List and I.D. may be requested.
For best results, any changes in dismissal should be in the teacher's hands by 8:00 a.m. Changes after 2:05 pm are difficult to guarantee success.
When emergencies arise and a change in dismissal is needed, parents must contact the front office staff by phone as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping your children safe!
