Feedback requested for CDIP

Santa Shop/Volunteers Needed

As December arrives, so does the annual Santa Shop at SVA! Dates will be 12/12-12/18 this year,  It will be set up on the K-5 side, but the 6th-8th grade students will have plenty of opportunities to shop, also.  

*We are highly encouraging students who want to shop to come to school on Thursday 12/13 from 6-8pm when the shop will be open, during the PTSA Holiday Program.

Students will also have a chance to shop in the mornings from 7:40-8:00am. Students need to check in with homeroom teachers before coming to shop.

Each team also has one lunch period set aside just for them to shop during activity time.

***Friday December 14th  Gemini, Archimedes, & Explorers

***Monday December 17th Apollo, Tesla, & Challengers

In order for the students to be able to enter the Santa Shop, they need to have money to shop. They are not allowed to just come shop with friends. The shop is not big, and we need to safely be able to monitor students who are visiting.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  

The last request is to ask you to share the below link for Santa Shop Volunteers in a newsletter or email communication with parents. The more volunteers we have, the smoother the shop runs. Thank you! (6-8th grade students are not allowed to sign up for these volunteers slots)

School Board Recognition Month

Summit View Academy would like to thank our KCSD leaders during School Board Recognition Month.

The Kenton County School District Board of Education is composed of Carl Wicklund, Karen Collins, Jesica Jehn, Joshua Crabtree and Carla Egan.

“The voters of our community have created a special group of education leaders in this board,” said Superintendent Henry Webb. “They are true partners in the work to ensure every child in every classroom can experience high quality teaching and learning.

“When you consider how state and federal funding is shrinking, our school board has faced tremendous challenges, and members haven’t flinched from their responsibilities,” he said. “Our community can be very proud of this team of board members, and I’m proud to be their partner working for education excellence for our children.”

Across the Commonwealth, Kentucky’s 173 public school systems will use January to recognize the work of the state’s 867 local school board members.

“School board members across Kentucky have faced numerous and growing challenges the past few years, and this year has been a particularly challenging one,” said KSBA President David Webster, chairman of the Simpson County Board of Education. “As I traveled the state last fall, I saw the dedication in every local school board member to make Kentucky’s schools among the tops in the nation to ensure our children can be competitive wherever they may go. I am very proud to be a local school board member in Kentucky.”
