Parent Connections Overview 

Parent Connections is a great way to learn about all the amazing events happening at Summit and how you can get involved in our school community! Parent Connections was created to provide activities and events that develop, educate, inform and strengthen the Summit Community. Our group of dedicated parents work hard to plan various fundraising events that promote the Summit mission and support Summit programs. This includes classroom tools, additional academic programs, professional development and capital improvements. Our Parent Connections Group meets the first Tuesday of every month, from 8:00-9:00 AM, in the Summit Cafe. All parents are welcome to join us! 


Next Meeting: Tuesday, October 1st from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM


How Does Parent Connections Support Summit? 

Fundraising
Parent Connections plans and executes fundraising events throughout the school year. Fundraising supports many Summit programs, including classroom tools, academic and extracurricular programs, capital improvements, and teacher needs. In addition to our Annual Fund Drive, we also coordinate several off-campus events, such as the Summit Soiree and Celebrate Summit, that can serve as both fundraisers and fun, community-building parties! Each event has a dedicated chairperson(s) and event team.

Community Building   
Parent Connections sponsors a variety of community events for Summit students, faculty, staff, and their families.  Some of these include our Back-to-School Picnic, International Night, Student Talent Show, Summit Parent Education Events, Restaurant & Parent Happy Hour Nights, and Student Service Learning Projects.  These events showcase, promote, and celebrate the talents, passion, and enthusiasm of our amazing school community.  

Volunteering
Parent Connections coordinates many of the volunteers that support programs and events within the school community including History Day and Science Fair, Field Trips, Open Enrollment tours, Office & Classroom Support, and Staff Appreciation. 

Parent Education
Parent Connections organizes events that allow parents to explore and exchange ideas and information, serve on committees and advisory panels, attend BOD meetings, and schedules education nights about topics that support and enrich the ongoing mission of Summit.
