Summit Makers Sep 30, 2019 Summit  Makers

The first grade students at Summit Elementary School are busy with Maker Projects this year!  Teachers Cindy Michelini and Julie Peles are integrating the maker movement into ELA class for the first grade students. 

This project started with a Big Book titled "Chuck's Truck." The story setting was a farm and the plot was how the farm animals packed into the truck, which (spoiler alert!) eventually broke on the way to town.

School Calendar Adjustments Sep 13, 2019

We have made adjustments to our school calendar as a result of our delayed start. 

Monday, November 11th has been designated as an Act 80/School Conference day. Students do not need to report to school on this day. Teachers will be able to use that time for parent-teacher conferences. They have also been given the flexibility to schedule parent-teacher conferences earlier in November. 

Wednesday, November 27 has been designated a regular school day for students and teachers. At this point, students and teachers should plan to report to school on that day. However, we are hoping to be able to use that day as a Flexible Instructional Day (FID). We have submitted a FIDs application on behalf of Butler Area School District and will know by early November if our Flexible Instructional Day application has been approved.

To kick off the new program, Summit faculty and staff wore superhero costumes at school while they worked together with the students to ensure everyone is familiar with the school-wide PBIS rules and expectations.
