Weekly Head of School Note - 8/30/21

August 30, 2021


Dear Summit Family,


We have much to celebrate through our first week of the school year! Our students continue to lift our campus with their engagement in classes and their positivity in being back at school. In talking with middle school students last week, Delainey Owens in 7th grade shared how much she’s enjoyed the experiments she is doing in science class, and Wylie Hoffman in 8th grade said he’s enjoyed seeing friends again and cross-grade level middle school lunches. As a faculty and staff, we are excited for the year ahead!


One of Summit’s most treasured assets is our beautiful campus, and I want to thank the many people who over the last several months have worked incredibly hard to ensure it is in top form for our students and teachers in starting the school year. This past Saturday, over 30 parents and students came out to spruce up our outdoor classrooms--from weeding and restoring garden beds, to performing maintenance on Summit’s Quiet Coyote Trail. Thank you to all who pitched in to care for these many important learning spaces on our campus. Additionally, special thanks to Mathis Landscapes for repairing our greenhouse so that it is ready for our classes to utilize, and to Discover Turf for their ongoing dedication to maintaining Summit’s grounds and greenspaces across campus.


I also want to extend congratulations to our high school student-athletes, who last week competed in their first games of the season. Our high school soccer put forth a strong showing in their first game ever for the high school soccer program in their 2-5 loss to Blue Ridge, and our high school volleyball team played strong though came up short in their first game against Victory Christian. We are proud of our High School Bears for their leadership in building Summit’s high school athletics program, and look forward to a promising season ahead!


Finally, thank you to everyone who joined us at last Friday’s Roundup to celebrate Summit’s 25th anniversary. Seeing our courtyard filled with families, students, and community members is always a poignant reminder of what a special school we have here at Summit. Thank you for your continued support.


Climb on!

Kurt
