Our Vision:

Climbing to reach our highest potential

Some highlights for this month include another friendship group starting. Fourth-grade girls interested in being part of a group that will be starting soon are invited to get a permission form from my office to get parental approval. All grades and ages are welcome to sign-up, however, the groups start according to the number of students who submit forms. Also, we are holding the Summit Hills Elementary Chess Tournament Mondays after school. The first round is already complete amidst some intense chess matches. Participants include students from our chess club, from third to sixth grade. Many of our students enjoy playing the game and I would like to thank those of you who have encouraged your children in learning to play this game of strategy and analysis.
