Digital Citizenship Workshop

Dear Summit Hill Family Member,

Many parents today share an interest - and even sometimes a bit of concern - about their kids' digital lives. As part of Common Sense's connecting Families Program, we are hosting a morning for parent discussion and education about Digital Citizenship and the curriculum covered at school. We hope you will join us on September 11th at 9:00 a.m. in the Media center.

I hope to see you there!


Mrs. Howard

Safety Patrol

Safety Patrol applications are now being accepted from interested 5th grade students. The applications are available outside of room C102 and are due by September 1st. Late applications will not be accepted.

First Grade Needs Your Help!

Reader’s Workshop is well underway down the first grade hallway, and we need your help. Our first grade classes are in need of a variety of books to build classroom libraries. If you have any gently used books lying on your bookshelves at home we would like you to consider donating them to a very worthy cause. We promise that they will be put to good use!

Donations can be dropped off at the front desk, labeled ‘1st Grade Book Donation’. Thank you in advance for supporting our first graders !
