At Summit High School, students are reading the novel, "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas." The story includes an interesting contrast of an innocent child’s perspective in a setting with circumstances far from innocent. Students are exploring the meaning and value of an innocent perspective and how it enables this story to unfold. Other themes include friendship, acts of humanity, understanding conformity and obedience, and exploring prejudice and discrimination.
Students are learning to take each other's perspective into consideration and understanding how the other themes are related.

This month, in honor of Veteran's Day, ATP students took part in a service learning project for the Brockton Veterans Hospital. Students collaborated to decide on items that they wanted to purchase, determined a budget, donated funds and purchased materials at The Dollar Store. Items such as toiletry necessities, recreational games, and candy were all donated. Thank you letters were also written as part of the project. The drive provided students a great opportunity to give to others in need.
ELA & Art : Summit in Walpole
Summit’s SELC and SMS Programs
Teachers Kate Crosby - Art & Kelly Messier - Classroom grades 3-6
A Collaboration of ELA and the Visual Arts: students engaged in both writing and illustrating a short story.
At the Summit elementary and middle school programs, students engaged in a writing and art project for Mrs. Messier and Art teacher, Kate Crosby. We developed a lesson plan incorporating both elements of writing and storytelling with character development and illustration. Each student wrote a brief story about their character and illustrated the parts of their story. The short stories were assembled into a booklet and students presented them in class.
