St. Louis Cardinals & KC Royals Buy Out Day on Friday, August 25: Benefiting Pennies for Patients
The funds raised from this Friday's uniform buyout day will go to the Pennies for Patients Foundation. The high school service learning class has chosen this foundation as their first project of the year, since September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. The  Pennies for Patients Foundation focuses on finding a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma, cancers of the blood. 

Summit students, faculty, and staff may pay $2 to dress out of Summit uniform on Friday. The day's alternate attire is in the theme of either St. Louis Cardinals (Ms. Amy & Mr. Mike's team) or KC Royals (Mr. G's team). This is an optional dress out day, students may choose to wear Summit uniforms/spirit wear on Friday and not pay the $2.
