  • INTERESTED IN SUMMIT STUDENT LEADERS NEXT YEAR?: If you are a 6th Grade student and are interested in leadership, please apply to be a Summit Student Leader for next school year.   Applications can be found in the office,  click on the link Student Leader Application, or use the QR code attachment to download the application.   Applications are due to Mr. Hiatt by Wednesday, April 17th.
  1.  Summit’s First Ever Book Madness bracket is over.  The winning book was WONDER!  28 students correctly guessed that Wonder would win it all, so I drew 2 prize winners.  Audrey Allen and Luke McCammon can come to the library some time this week to pick a prize.  Thank you to everyone that voted!
  2. As we approach the end of the year, the library is going to start limiting checkouts to 2-3 books per student at a time for the month of April.  You can always stop in to exchange books.
  3. You have until the end of April to read this year’s Children’s and Teen Choice Books for our Reading Challenge.  Use this link to record any of the titles you have read:    Random prize winners this month are: Layla Hart, Aubrey O’Leary, and Jackson Lansink.  Come see me in the library to collect your prize.
  4. We have lots of new books in – many that were requested by students!  Come and check out our NEW ARRIVALS shelf!
  • Atención – Any sixth grader from second rotation Spanish please come and take your self portrait off the wall in the hall by Friday.
  • Summit CommUNITY month proved to be amazing!: The Summit Students were able to donate $2,995.30 to Johnston Partnership Place!  The money raised will be used to fund Summit’s Friday Friends.  This program sends bags of food home on the weekends, when school meals are not available to students.  We collected approximately 600 personal care items for Johnston Partnership Place. All this helped us reach our goal for recess time for all Summit Students.  A HUGE thanks to all the parents, students, and volunteers to make all this happen!  It is great to be a Summit CommUNITY!  Remember our final Summit CommUNITY celebration is this Thursday, April 4 from 5:00-8:00pm.  $7 will get you in the door and your skates for the evening.
  • MILITARY APPRECIATION HAT DAY: Tomorrow, April 3, students can give a donation at the beginning of school to receive a hat pass for the day. Money collected will purchase supplies to donate for overseas care packages.
  • CONGRATULATIONS!: On Saturday, March 30th, students from Summit Middle School, Johnston Middle School, and Johnston High School competed in the Merle Hay District Iowa History Day competition with in-depth research projects they have developed over the last several months. Several students and projects have qualified to compete at the State of Iowa History Day competition on April 29th at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.  Students will be competing for a chance to represent Iowa at the national competition that will be held in Washington, DC in June.
