Becky Quackenbush, our Summit Intermediate Assistant Principal, earned her doctoral degree this past Friday. Students and staff celebrated her accomplishment today with a parade through our halls. She was provided a specially designed float and crown to wear for the parade! Students made congratulatory banners and posters to shower her with during the parade.

Environmental Services Visit
Laurie Duncan from City of Springfield Environmental Services came to Summit Intermediate. Student's have been learning about Earth Day and ways to improve the quality of the earth. Mrs. Duncan brought lots of hands on activities that engaged students and gave them visual examples of Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling. Students received goodie-bags that had pencils made from recycled money and bracelets that could be planted to grow flowers. The presentation was so engaging that Mrs. Duncan is on schedule to return next year!
As part of our study of World War II, we have been discussing rationing. To help students better understand this, they are participating in a week long experience with rationing in the classroom. Every student was given a ration book with redeemable coupons. Students were then presented with a list detailing the cost of all items in the classroom. Students have to make decisions about what is important to purchase and what is just a want.
Three girls, Tessa E., Sidnee H., and Micaiah D., from Summit Intermediate have been working very hard over the past couple of weeks to get more books for the ‘Little Library’ in front of their school, which Miss Tinsley started this past fall. They asked students to bring in books and donate them to the ‘Little Library’, with a school book drive. The girls received over 600 donated books to help furnish the ‘Little Library’ for our community!!!
