Backward walking, forward walking, hopping, skipping, dancing… these are some of what we saw last Thursday as students, staff, and parents circled around the parking lot for the 3rd annual PTO Walk-A-Thon!

We have many traditions here at Summit – one being the Annual Chick Derby. This year’s was the best I’ve witnessed! … And they’re off! The Chick Derby got off to an excellent start. All chicks were focused and ready to hit the track. But what’s going on here?!…. Luckily our “trainers” are also excellent referees. The situation was quickly righted.
