From the Head of School...

Dear Summit School Community,

It's hard to believe we are nearly a month into the school year. I hope that Summit School has been a wonderful experience for you so far.

You are invited to join us on September 12 for our annual Summit School Curriculum Night. Curriculum Night is an opportunity for our students' guardians to learn about the curriculum and activities that are unique to each grade level. All grade levels will be represented, and there are multiple sessions to accommodate different family needs. Please understand that this is not a student event, and no additional child care will be offered that evening beyond our regular extended day.

The evening begins at 4:30pm and will end at 6:30pm. Please see the schedules below for times and locations.

Thank you for being a part of our Summit Community and thank you for all you do.


Dr. Stephanie Nardi

Head of School

Two Surveys Coming Soon

Please watch for two separate parent surveys coming home soon. One survey will address the changes to the school calendars in our local public school districts. The other survey will be a beginning of the year "check-in" to see how your Summit School experience is going so far this year. Thank you.

Time for a Parade!

Coming soon! On September 21, Summit School will welcome in fall with our Second Annual Welcome Fall Wagon Parade. The parade will take place during our regular Morning Meeting time beginning at roughly 8:25am. Mark your calendars! This is a great Summit School event.

To make this happen, please consider loaning us your wagon. If you are able, please begin dropping wagons at school on Monday, August 22. Make sure your wagon is labeled with your name on the bottom for easy return. You may park your wagon next to the Idea Lab entrance. Thank you.

Referral Credits and IBE

I hope this message finds you enjoying your summer break and hopefully staying cool with these toasty temps rising. As we begin to plan for the upcoming school year, we figured it was a great time to remind you of a couple awesome programs that Summit offers.

Yes, we are still offering a $1,000.00 referral tuition credit for each new student (non-sibling of current student) who is referred to Summit for the 2022-23 school year. The credit will be applied to your FACTS account after 2 months. We greatly appreciate your referrals!

Also, if you or someone you know owns or is a decision-maker in an LLC or S-Corp, there are some new, beneficial tax changes (See message below from IBE).

Corporate Donation season is here and there have been some HUGE things happening at IBE. As you may have heard, our very generous S-Corporations could potentially receive a deduction on their Federal tax forms in addition to the State dollar-for-dollar tax credit.

Please check out the following link for more information.
