January 26, 2016 (Summit, NJ) – The Summit Principals’ Association, in conjunction with the Summit Educational Community, has launched the Illuminating HEARTS4HOPE Campaign. The initial campaign will benefit the Hassert Family. An active, involved and caring resident of Summit, Carol Hassert, the Summit High School principal’s secretary, is facing her second cancer diagnosis in two years. Her three children all attended the Summit Public Schools. Illuminating HEARTS4HOPE is a luminary campaign. Today through February 12, luminary kits will be sold via the attached order form, which must be returned to a Summit Public School main office by noon on Friday, February 12. Kits are sold on a first-come first-served basis and advance orders are suggested. Quantities are limited. Each kit includes 15 candles, luminary bags and assembly instructions, which can be picked up at Wilson Primary Center on February 10, 11, or 12 from 3:30pm until 8:00pm. The campaign will conclude with luminaries being lit, in front of participants’ homes, the evening of February 14, 2016. Those interested in this event, but living outside of Summit, are encouraged to participate as well by purchasing luminary kits and lighting them at dusk on February 14, spreading HOPE throughout the area.

Classical Music 2.0 launched at Franklin School in September and is an expansion of the original SEF sponsored project funded last year.  Tchaikovsky at Tea Time will now be added to the beautiful sounds of Bach, Debussy and Mozart already playing in your child’s everyday classroom environment. We hope to present classical music in a positive and accessible way to our students while: promoting creativity and cognitive function; assisting teachers with classroom management; and creating a future generation of classical audiences. In addition to the new CD, the nurse and specialist teachers were provided with the three compact discs from last year:  Bach for Breakfast, Debussy for Daydreaming and Mozart for Your Mind.  All of these CD’s are available for purchase on Amazon (log into Amazon through www.franklinparents.com to earn money for the school).  You too can play Bach at breakfast or include Mozart in your homework routine! If you have questions about the program or would like more information on suggested uses for the CD’s please contact: Kate Polles at kpolles@summit.k12.nj.us or Susan Yarad at syarad@verizon.net
