Late Start at 9:30 am on Wednesday, September 13
Each month The Summit will have a 9:30 a.m. late start Wednesday morning. During these late start mornings, Summit faculty and staff will continue to devote time to curriculum review and finalizing the self-study portion of our re-accredition process through ISACS

The first of these late starts will be next Wednesday, September 13. Fun Zone will maintain the normal starting time of 7:30 a.m. and will be extended to 9:15 a.m., at which time students will join their teachers to begin their daily class routines. The official start time for the school day will be 9:30 a.m. You are encouraged to drop off your child(ren) between 9:15-9:30 a.m. just prior to the start of classes. However, families who need to use Fun Zone from 8:30-9:15 a.m. may do so at no cost. Questions? Contact Amy Maas.
Volunteering at The Summit
Over 70 people have successfully completed Volunteer Training at The Summit for the 2017-2018 academic year. If you haven't completed training this year (it lasts for 2 years) contact Becky Breckner or Vince Currao to make sure that you are still up-to-date and able to volunteer with our students!
4th Graders Donate Snack Shop Profits to Hurricane Harvey Victims
Each year, Mrs. Anderson's class organizes and runs a Snack Shop from their classroom. Every week a different student has the job of shop clerk and gives up part of their lunch time to work in the Snack Shop. The clerk helps stock the shop and makes change for the customers. At the end of the month the class votes on where to donate the profits from Snack Shop. This month they have decided to donate their $50 profit to Red Cross to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Summit Family Business Directory 

The Summit Parent Organization (SPO) would like to build the relationships within The Summit community by offering families with businesses the opportunity to list their business in the Summit Business Directory. This will allow us to support one another through referrals and patronage. 

Participation is completely optional and free of charge. Additionally, teachers are excited at the prospect of the Business Directory to have as a reference for potential guest speakers in their classrooms &/or field trip opportunities. If you are interested in being listed in the Business Directory, please use the link on the right.

Box Tops for Education Collection: September 15-21
We will be collecting Box Tops for Education labels in classrooms from  September 15 - September 21 as a contest between classes. The class with the most collected Box Tops during this time period (expired Box Tops will not count toward the totals) will receive a prize. SPO collects Box Tops at the front desk year-round and turns them in for cash to help pay for SPO activities and events. This will be the only Box Top competition this school year, so please plan to continue turning in your labels even after the contest. Every clip counts!
