NEWS & EVENTS
On Wednesday, December 30, our Summit Academy Parents Group (special thanks to Frances Queen and Melissa Oliver) hosted another family event online. They led us through an online process of baking chocolate chip cookies. Everyone’s cookies looked great, and were reported to be delicious.
Thank you to Mrs. Frances Queen, one of our parents, who set up the event for the Summit Academy Parents Group. Thank you to the students, family members, and Summit Academy personnel who joined in to make this a fun-filled (and tasty) event.
Please enjoy the pictures of some of the cookies.
We must leave the taste to your imagination.

Online Baking with Chef Mario
On Wednesday, December 2, our Summit Academy Parents Group hosted its first family events program online. The theme was “Cooking with Mario.” Six students and their families, along with six members of the administration and faculty of Summit Academy, joined online to make shortbread cookies. Chef Mario Catanzaro led us through the process of making shortbread cookies, including how to make icing for them. Everyone learned something. (Did you know that sugar is considered a liquid in baking?) Everyone’s cookies were delicious. Thanks to Chef Mario for the guidance & instruction. We look forward to the next recipe.

Middle School Visits the Fitchburg Art Museum
On Wednesday, February 26, the students in the middle school spent the morning at the Fitchburg Art Museum learning more about Egypt. Some of the things they learned more about included the Egyptian Gods, the pyramids, and the Nile River Valley. They had the opportunity to sit in a replica of King Tut's throne. The morning culminated in an art activity where they created Egyptian masks. This trip ties into the unit the students are working on at school on Egypt where they spend several days working on an activity in math about the size and volume of the Great Pyramid of Giza and they are creating their own Egyptian God.
Speed Friending in the Middle School
During Social Skills today, the middle school students practiced the skill of making friends by participating in Speed Friending. Spending 3 minutes with a peer, they asked other questions to learn as much as possibly. They were given guiding questions to help them learn more about their classmates. The questions included things like "What are your favorite pizza toppings?, What is your favorite gift anyone has ever given you?, You are stranded on a desert island. What three things would you most want to have with you?" to name a few.
A New Tradition!
Three mornings a week, our community gathers in the Dojo for Morning Meeting.
We start off the meeting with the students leading the Pledge of Allegiance. We then have time for school announcements and finish with affirmations.
Affirmations are a time for any community member to thank or say something nice about another community member!
