Red Ribbon Week - October 27th - 31st
Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.’ is the 2014 slogan for Red Ribbon Week. The Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest nationwide drug prevention campaign that began in 1985 to honor slain DEA agent, Enrique Camarena, who dedicated his life to erase drugs from our communities. Red Ribbon Week is a great way for students and the community to unite and take a stand against drugs!
Below are a few fun ways the Summit Hill students can show their support for Red Ribbon Week. Please clickSHE-Red Ribbon Flyer 10-21-2014b.pdf to learn more!
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!
