SUMMIT CULTURE CLUB
Mrs. Heston and Mrs. Brock are starting the Summit Culture Club, previously known as School Climate Committee. This is a group designed to promote positivity and help ensure our school is a culturally sensitive and accepting place for everyone. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of we encourage you to apply. Applications can be found at:
Applications are due on October 31st. If you are currently a member of the Student Leaders, please do not apply for the Summit Culture Club as the two groups work closely together. Please see Mrs. Heston or Mrs. Brock with any questions.

Featured Book of the Week:
Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic is a memoir by Michael McCreary. Michael recounts his childhood and early adulthood as a person on the Autism spectrum. Michael is now a stand-up comedian, so you can expect to laugh while reading this book! However, you will also learn a lot about Autism and how it effects people on the spectrum and their families and friends.
