Garden Club will meet Thursday after school.
Summit Garden Club is seeking gently used garden tools and supplies.
Last gardening season, the Summit Garden Club was able to donate over 600 pounds of fresh produce to the Johnston Partnership. Students are seeking to beat that amount this year, but we need your help! We are seeking donations of gently used gardening tools and supplies.
Items might include garden rakes, weeders, shovels, trowels, spades, pitchforks, cultivators, etc. If your home is looking to replace your used tools and/or you are looking to make space in your storage, we would gladly take any unused/unwanted garden supplies off your hands. Please contact Allison Barlow at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Donations can be brought to the front office.

GSA meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Next meeting will be April 14 from 3 – 3:30 in room 226. Please contact Mrs. Brock or Mrs. Heston with any questions.
FROM THE LIBRARY
It was a very close Championship Game, but Harry Potter took the title of “Summit’s Favorite Book” this year! Thank you to everyone that voted!
April showers bring May flowers! Can you guess how many umbrellas are in this container? Record your guess here or in the library with your iPad.
Featured Book of the Week
The newest book from Kelly Yang, New From Here, tells the story of a family that returns to the United States after living abroad in Hong Kong at the beginning of the pandemic. Can Knox keep his family together even though his dad has to remain in Hong Kong for his job?
