An outstanding  Cultural Arts assembly for all grades took place last Tuesday, December 16th by —-“Ball in the House”—- Hopefully your child was as entralled by this performance as the teachers were. The a cappella singers performed many well known songs such as Billie Jean (by Michael Jackson), Happy (by Pharrell Williams), YMCA (by the Village People) and an original tune created by a young five-year-old boy (son of one of the group members), to name a few.  This was an interactive performance where the students were encouraged to sing along. One of the singers urged the children to be involved in the art of music and emphasized that music and being in a band is appropriate for girls AND boys. He told his childhood story about being persuaded by his friends to drop out of his band because he was a boy. He took their advice, but then realized that they were wrong. He is ecstatic that he formed a different conclusion than what his friends suggested. How could a quintet of a cappella singers sound like a full instrumental band? The “percussion” member of the group taught the children how to make drum and symbol sounds with their […]

And, of course, a HUGE congratulations to Ms. Langborgh’s 5th Graders (5L) and Mr. Sleven’s 2nd Graders (2SL) for bringing in the most Box tops. It was such a close race that Mr. Gil is rewarding both classes with pizza parties. And remember: the next contest begins…right NOW! Any Box tops turned in between now and February 23, 2015, will be counted toward the next pizza party contest, so please continue to clip and submit those Box tops!

Concerned Parents of Summit will be presenting “no voting in our public schools” at the Common Council meeting on Monday, November 17th, 7:30 pm at City Hall. Your attendance and support at this meeting will help our case. Please sign the “NO VOTING IN SCHOOLS” petition. See details below from “Concerned Parents of Summit”- In doing our research on finding new voting sites for the next election, we found out that the trailers that Franklin School uses are leased, and those leases will be terminated in September 2015 (or when construction is completed).  After that date, the trailers will be returned and voting will resume inside Franklin School, most likely in the gym.  We wanted to give you this info in the event that you were not aware, since this would directly impact the safety of the kids at Franklin. Mr. Gil let us know that a few parents from Franklin will be attending the presentation to Common Council on the 17th.  We are so thankful for the support, and wanted to let you know that we have several lawn signs left if any parents would like one. We’re also in our final push to reach 1,000 signatures in support […]
