The Monday Update

February 9, 2015





They say that children learn by example, and this is never more true than when learning to give and serve - a lesson at least as important as their ABC's. Let's give them another opportunity to grow in giving by bringing in a donation for the Student Council food drive this week!


Happy Valentine's Day this weekend!


Food Drive


The Summit Academy Student Council is holding a food
drive for a service project!
They are collecting non-perishable items like canned goods, cereals, pasta, canned fruits and vegetables.


Collection will continue in each classroom through February 13.
