Summit H.S. Eighth Grade Parent Night Set for Jan. 14


SUMMIT, NJ - Summit High School (SHS) will host "Eighth Grade Parent Night" January 14 at 7 p.m.

In a letter to parents, SHS Principal Paul Sears described the transition from middle to high school as, "One of the most exciting times for a student.  The experiences in learning and co-curricular activities that become available to a student, as well as the support provided, make the four years from grade nine through twelve very special."

The event is an opportunity to welcome parents, introduce them to the high school and the programs that await their child.  The meeting is designed to help each family during this transition time. 
There will be three breakout sessions covering highlights of the many facets of the high school both academically and in terms of its co-curricular programs.  Also presented will be a profile of the significant achievements of SHS students across all areas, and the ways the school supports their plans for further education or career development. 
The administration will provide an overview of the high school’s expectations, policies, and procedures.  Supervisors from each of the academic departments will present an overview on the Program of Studies and information about course offerings, and counselors will deliver information regarding support services, course and schedule planning, as well as an overview of the orientation process for students.

information packets will be available starting at 6 p.m. outside the SHS auditorium, and parents are asked to arrive in plenty of time, pick up their information packet, and move to the proper breakout location.  Questions on anything related to this process may be directed to the School Counseling Department at 908 / 273-3414.

Parents of classified students are invited to join a presentation beginning us at 6:15 p.m. in the Faculty Dining Room.  At this time, information on support programs and classes will be presented by faculty, the Child Study Team, and the Supervisor of Special Education.
