Picture Make-up and Re-take Day

For students who were absent for school pictures, the make-up day will be on October 20, from 7:45 am - 8:45 am.

If students would like a re-take, they may do that at this time as well. The cost is $5 for re-takes. Student photo pre-orders and proofs (if you did not place an order) were sent home on Monday. The full retake policy is described on the picture packets. If you ordered pictures but would like a re-take, please bring your purchased pictures with you on your retake day so you can exchange the same package at no extra cost.


The library is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair October 25 - November 7. In-person shopping will be available to students October 25 - 29 during school hours. Online shopping may occur any time October 25 - November 7.

All students will visit the book fair with their ELA class during the week of October 25. Parents, you may be interested in eWallet. It is a great way to permit your child to shop without the hassle of sending money to school. Visit the link below to learn more about the Book Fair including eWallet & online shopping.



This year Red Ribbon Week occurs the week of October 23rd thru 31st and the theme is Drug-Free Looks Like Me™. Like all years, students at Summit Lakes Middle School will participate in fun and educational activities and games designed to help them learn about making healthy choices; empower them to be strong and steadfast in their beliefs and convictions; and share facts about the negative effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Additionally, our students will sign a pledge during the week indicating their commitment to making healthy choices.

This year, during the entire month of October, we will also have commitment pledge cards available for parents to sign, along with pamphlets and brochures that are geared towards parents of teenagers. If you visit Summit Lakes to sign your child in or out, the pledge cards and informational packets will be located at the main office window. Each person who signs a brick will have his/her name included in a random drawing to win the book, A Better High, by Matt Bellace, Ph.D.

Not planning to stop by SLMS during the month of October? No worries; you can print off the pledge card by clicking the button below, sign it, snap a photo of it, and email the picture to: , and you too will be entered in the drawing.

Don’t forget to hang your pledge card with pride and for all to see that you’re a great role model in making and promoting healthy choices too!
