The snow has disappeared, the birds are chirping and the days are longer. Spring is finally upon us, and after a long, cold winter, we couldn't be happier. Another sign that spring has arrived?

We need your pictures! Send photos of all things Summit to Chevonne at YOUR FAVORITE SUMMIT TEACHER ON A TROPICAL VACATION!


This week, each student will receive 10 raffle tickets to Send a Teacher Packing - an easy way to show appreciation for your favorite teacher(s). Families, students, & friends can nominate any teacher by purchasing as many raffle tickets as they would like for $5 each.  Tickets can be purchased by anyone - students, parents, grandparents, alumni, even teachers!


On April 23, immediately following the Spring Drama Production, we will draw the lucky teacher who will enjoy a nice, relaxing vacation in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in Naples, Florida! The more "nominations", the more entries for that teacher and the more chances to win.


In addition to the deserving teacher, the person who purchased or sold the winning ticket will receive a birthday party package for 10 people from All About Kids!


Look for your tickets and more information coming home early this week.


Summit Scouting


Boy Scout Troop 206 and Cub Scout Pack 206  

Where Scouting Meets Individual Needs


In the Boy Scout program, boys learn through the experiences of camping, hiking, building projects, and community service. Scouting fosters self-esteem, a sense of value and belonging, a sense of accountability, and teamwork.

  • Adventure
  • Leadership
  • Fun
  • Team

The program builds boys mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually. The skills they learn in Scouting help them overcome obstacles and challenges with courage and character throughout their lives.


Give your son a valuable gift by encouraging him to join Boy Scouting today. The time you invest in him today will make a difference in the person he becomes tomorrow.


Contact Belinda Conrad Richardson for more information. 502-762-4322 or


The first after school meeting will be this Friday, March 27 from 3:15-4:30.
