FIFTEEN CANDLES ON SUMMIT’S CAKE!


If Adelle can name an album after her age then Summit is going to re-name January the “Happy 15th Month!”  This month we are celebrating our 15th anniversary!  Décimo quinto cumpleaños feliz!

Summit Parents are Invited! As a way of commemorating this special birthday we would like to invite parents to join our students and staff on Monday, February 1st  at 10:00 a.m. to take a group picture on the play field.  We would like everyone to wear a white-colored top so we can form the number “15.”

Let’s celebrate fifteen great reasons why your children belong at Summit:
