Asset Builder: Summit Cove Elementary

Summit School District would like to nominate Summit Cove Elementary Principal Crystal Miller and the entire staff at Summit Cove Elementary as this month’s Asset Builders of the Month.For the first time in its history, the elementary school received a rating of “excellent” on the School Accountability Report, the state’s annual assessment of school performance.The hard work and dedication of the staff, students and parents at the school has truly paid off. The school improved to the excellent mark after receiving a rating of “average” for the 2000-2001 school year and “high” in both 2001-2002 and 2002-2003.Summit Cove’s rating as an excellent school was a total team effort by the primary and intermediate teams, our specialist teachers, the entire central office staff and our board of education.Our preschool and primary teachers allow for future growth. They develop a kid’s sensibilities without which we could not aspire to such expansive success. The intermediate team, composed of talent tempered by wisdom and experience, promotes continued growth and individualized challenges. The teaching staff has absorbed a new reading system and several new assessment techniques used to drive improved instruction. The office and custodial staff is incomparable and allows Summit Cove to function efficiently and effectively. The Summit Cove PTSA is an ongoing source of moral support and monetary infusions into needed programs.Finally, a recent questionnaire indicated strong support for Crystal Miller. Her belief in child-centered and achievement-driven leadership has led to many significant improvements at Summit Cove Elementary. Our new “Morning Math” and “Homework Club” programs are her creations. She fostered the creation of the new schoolwide Touchstone statement. She constantly encourages the integration of standards and learning opportunities.- Nominated by Summit Cove Elementary staff
