From the Head of School...

Dear Summit School Community,


There are so many great things happening at Summit School!


Thank you to all who joined us for our Welcome Fall Wagon Parade! The rain held off long enough for all to have a great time celebrating. In case you missed it, you can see our stories from the news stations who joined us below.


Coming soon we also have our Summit School Talent Show, an Open House event perfect for earning some referral dollars, a brand new Arts Night, and PTOs Trunk or Treat. More information will be coming soon on all of these events.


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


Sincerely,


Dr. Stephanie Nardi

Head of School

Talent Show Time!

The Stars of Summit Talent Show is back! We are looking for talents of all kinds – singers, dancers, musicians, jugglers, magicians, gymnasts, comedians, scientists, actors, you name it. We’d love to see the variety of talent that Summit students have, so please be creative!

This year’s talent show is open to all who would like to participate. There will be no auditions, but you are required to perform your act at one of the final rehearsals. Please be prepared! If your act is not ready by the final rehearsal, you will not be allowed to perform in the show. The Talent Show will be held on Wednesday, November 2 at 5:30 pm. The final rehearsals will take place on Tuesday, October 25 and Wednesday, October 26 at 3:30 pm in the MPR.

Forms were sent home with every student. If your student is interested in performing, please fill out the form and return it to Ms. Vosseller by October 14. If you have any questions, please email her at erin.vosseller@summitschoolaz.org. We know that Summit students and staff are some of the most talented people around!

Referral Credits and IBE

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.
