Shoebox for Soldiers
The Summit’s 4th grade class is seeking donations of items to help fill shoeboxes as part of The Bull 105.1’s Operation Shoeboxes for Soldiers Program. Each 4th grader is putting together a box stuffed with care items and notes to be sent to soldiers for the holidays.

Please consider donating some items from one or more categories on the attached list. If you would like to “Adopt a Box” to help a student fill a box entirely, please email Ms. Thompson. Donations will need to be delivered to The Summit by Monday, November 30th.

We thank you for your support!

Thank You to Our Veterans
On this special day, we remember our veterans, and the men and women who continue to serve and sacrifice for our country.

Thank you. Today, and every day.

At The Summit, Mr. Vince leads our students in a flag raising and lowering ceremony every Monday morning and Friday afternoon.

This time gives students a special opportunity to learn about the proper handling and displaying of our flag. They also learn about the history and evolution of this important symbol, when it is appropriate to lower the flag to half staff, and lots of interesting flag trivia.

Thank you to our Summit Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the 5th Grade class for being our flag duty volunteers this year!
Now Accepting Applications!
The Summit is still accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year! We have virtual admissions options and screenings flexible for a variety of family schedules. If you know someone who would love to learn at The Summit, please contact Amy Maas, Admissions & Communications Officer.
