Dear Chevonne,

Ready or not, it's back to school this week for Summit students!

Make sure to attend this week's parent and student orientations so we can update you on any changes and help prepare you and your students for the upcoming year.


Special Needs Youth Sports at the YMCA


TOPS (The Opportunity To Play Sports) is designed so that any child and teen, ages 5-14, who has a physical or mental disability has the opportunity to make new friends, have fun playing sports and learn teamwork. Our rules are made to enable each child towards success.

TOPS sessions include practice and scrimmage games. All will be held at the Northeast Family YMCA.

Target is donating a total of 5 million dollars to schools over the country! In order for Summit to get a share of it, we need to "vote". We have to get 25 votes to be eligible & earn $25. Each additional vote = $1.
