Summit K2 Newsletter: MAP Testing & Upcoming Events!

We are just coming off of two weeks of HS Expeditions, and we are so excited to see the incredible work that students have completed in their electives! They have pursued their passions through programmed electives or internships/independent studies!

Here is a sample of some of the work students produced:

  • Art murals made out of collage donated to various community organizations including La Raza, Berkeley Chess School, and Abbey Pet Hospital!
  • A new art mural for Summit K2’s GYM to honor our athletic teams!
  • Multiple hikes into the wilderness for a full day, including to Tilden Park!
  • Human Rights class visited a refugee organization in Berkeley to learn more about their plight!
  • Dance class filmed an AMAZING hip hop dance video!
  • Winter MAP Testing: Students will take the NWEA MAP test on Monday, December 11th and Friday, December 15th
  • ! As a reminder, this is a test that all students take three times a year so that we can measure their growth in reading and math, as well as determine the appropriate reading and math intervention to place them in. Please ensure that they are well rested and come to school with a charged Chromebook!
  • HS Homecoming Dance Rescheduled: Friday, December 8th, from 6:30 – 9:00 pm at Summit K2. Food donations are highly welcomed! Please drop off any donations at the HS front office.
  • Applications for the 18-19 school year ARE LIVE on our new PARENT WEBSITE! Please encourage any families who would like to apply to do so online at: http://k2.summitps.org/enroll

REMINDERS:

HOMEWORK:

Your child should be doing at least 1 Hour of homework every night!!! Unlike a traditional school, K2 doesn’t give out sheets of HW to do each night. All of your child’s HW is on their Platform — they should be doing any of the following:

Taking notes on Focus Areas or playlists
Completing Checks for Understanding on Focus Areas or playlists
Completing overdue projects or checkpoints

AFTER SCHOOL OFFICE HOURS & CLUB SCHEDULE:

Please reference this schedule for all after school programming.

VOLUNTEERS:

We would love to have parent volunteers at K2! Currently, we need someone to help with front desk coverage at the MS and HS. Please email nhernandez@summitps.org if you are interested in helping!
