Students will remain with their class groups, wash hands, and disinfect toys and games in accordance with our COVID-19 policies.
Chiefs Dress Out Day on Friday 2/5
In honor of the Kansas City Chiefs playing in the 2021 Super Bowl, The Summit will host a FREE Dress Out Day on Friday, February 5th (the Friday before the Super Bowl). Students, faculty, & staff may choose to wear KC Chiefs attire or colors on this day at no cost.

It is still a spirit wear day, so students who are cheering for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can still wear Summit spirit wear. Just kidding! If we have any Bucc fans, they can absolutely wear their gear or colors, too!

The Annual Campaign for the Raven Fund is charging ahead! We are almost two thirds of the way to our fundraising goal and at about one third of our participation goal.

Get ready to read, Ravens! SPO is hosting a Read-A-Thon the whole month of February to gear up for Read Across America on March 2nd. Each student will gather pledges for the amount of time spent reading or being read to (Early Learners and Kindergarteners), and whichever class reads the most* will win an extra recess and have the traveling trophy in their classroom!

Download the Pledge Form Here, and start reading!

*Time spent reading per class will be adjusted for fairness based on class size. 

For questions, please contact spo@thesummitprep.org.
Around Campus
iWave Air Purifying System Installed
More exciting updates on campus! Our latest health and safety improvement includes the installation of 13 iWave air purification devices throughout our HVAC system. Thank you, Mr. Mike, for your continued, diligent research on the best resources for our school and to Connelly Plumbing, Heating, and Air for the quick and professional installation of this important filtration system!

More on the benefits of the iWave:
iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any duct air conditioning system. When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts.
