Back to School Bash: Friday After School!
Raven Report: August 22, 2018
Back to School Bash: This Friday After School!
Let's celebrate our first week of school! Join the entire Summit community immediately after school in our big backyard. SPO is providing hot dogs (fresh off the grill) and beverages at no charge. There will also be an ice cream truck here from 4-5 p.m. with a variety of treats available for purchase (between $1-5).

Please use the adjacent church parking lot for overflow parking (the lot to the east of The Summit).

Car line & pick-up before the Bash: We will follow normal dismissal procedures on Friday. Teachers will bring their classes to their assigned car line spots. Parents may either use the car line to pick up and then park, or they may park and then walk to pick up their student from their teacher.

Questions? Contact Amy Maas or Veronica Richardson.

SPO: 2018-2019 Volunteer Sign Up
The Summit Parent Organization (SPO) supports The Summit and our community through a variety of events and fundraisers. All of SPO's success is contributed to the efforts of our parent volunteers, and we couldn't do it without you! It is asked that families volunteer a minimum of four times per year ( see the Summit Handbook, p 24). Please take a look at the following volunteer options, and choose the ones that best suit your interests and skill set.
 
We appreciate all the time and energy you put into making our school the amazing place we all love! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your SPO Class Representative or the SPO President, Veronica Richardson.
