K2 October 2017 Bulletin

Fall is in full swing, and we are so excited to highlight a few milestones!

  • College & Career Day – High school students participated in our very 1st College and Career Day! Students participated in multiple panels, where they got to hear from working professionals from a variety of fields (engineers, KRON-4 newscaster, small business owners, etc.) about their real-life work experiences and what it took to get there! All 9th & 10th graders also took the PSAT to get into the habit of practicing for the all important SAT that they will take in their junior and senior year. As we grow the high school, our college going culture is really taking shape!
  • After school clubs – Thanks to the hard work of faculty and parent leaders, this year we are proud to launch a variety of after school clubs! Your child has the opportunity to participate in:
    • Young Dreamers Network
    • Girls Who Code
    • Queer Student Alliance (QSA)
    • Student Government (similar opportunities to leadership last year)
    • Capoiera
    • Yearbook Club
  • Student Government – Congrats to Calvin & Dora — our first ever Student body President & Vice President! We are so proud to have these two fabulous 10th grade students leading our new student government this year. They are poised and ready to do GREAT THINGS! Please congratulate them! 
  • Sports – Summit K2’s volleyball team is starting off strong! Our high school team played Aspire public schools at Tam, and won!  Upcoming games:
