Student Council: Community Service
Student Council worked to provide an excellent service learning opportunity for eighth grade and high school students on Friday, April 5th. These students, along with Mr. Powers and Mrs. Smith, took the afternoon to go to the Fairbanks Community Center and volunteer in their garden and flower beds. Before they began working, Emilee from Fairbanks took time to explain to our group the importance of the community center in its neighborhood, providing services to those in need. The group worked on pulling weeds, beautifying a playground, and spreading mulch. During this time, students in 6th and 7th grades helped out around school, volunteering to help teachers and Mr. Mike with tasks.

Ravens Reach Out Day at the Watershed Center
The second annual Ravens Reach Out Day at the Watershed Center was a huge success! During The Summit's all school service day students, parent, and employees helped with a variety of projects throughout the park. Projects included improving trail access, eliminating invasive species, and restoring native habitats.

The day was organized by Summit Guidance Counselor, Becky Breckner, who worked closely with Watershed Center Coordinator  Jeff Birchler to make sure each project was appropriate and impactful for each student .

Families are encouraged to plan a trip to the Watershed Center so students can show what they did at the park and take pride in the service they performed. Here's a little more detail about their projects:
  • Early Learners started native grass seed plugs by planting Big and Little Bluestem seeds. Once they germinate, these will then be planted in our savanna and prairie restoration areas.
  • Lower School:
    • Focused on habitat restoration. Kindergarten through 3rd grade students planted almost 60 native plants in the glade restoration area. These plants will join the 50 plants students planted the previous year.
    • Students in 4th and 5th grade did a fantastic job starting the trailhead restoration project. The area connecting the Watershed Center needed a great deal of work. The students lined the new section of trail with stone edging and covered the upper section of the trail with mulch to create a much nicer walkway for guests.
  • Middle School and High School:
    • Worked on many different projects while they were here. Some students helped remove an invasive species of plant known as wintercreeper. Once established, wintercreeper is extremely difficult to get rid of. Large areas of wintercreeper were cleared from the bottomland forest habitat thanks to the students' efforts.
    • Put final touches to the trailhead work started earlier in the day. Additional loads of mulch were placed on the trail and edging stones were placed in their final positions. 
    • A third group of students learned the old-fashioned way to create split rail fencing. Using hammers and wedges, these students created split rails out of cedar logs that had been cut down in the glade restoration area. These rails are then used to line the trail encouraging visitors to stay on the trail and protecting the recently restored native plants.
