01 Dec

The yearbook committee is busy collecting photographs to share with Ms. Rutenberg’s student yearbook team as well as business sponsorship ads. We continue to encourage parents to submit photos to us or directly to Ms. Rutenberg of memorable school events (you can even borrow a flash drive from Ms. Rutenberg overnight to transfer your pics). We are also still accepting applications for business ads – a very affordable way to let 300 students and their families know about your local business! Thank you to all the parents who have already submitted their precious pictures to us.

Yours truly,

Connie (, Andrea (, Liz ( and Sherlene (

Your yearbook parent team 🙂

CTV at Summit Heights

26 Nov

CTV Television was at Summit Heights this morning and video taped parts of the Empathy Assembly. Ms. Greco’s class performance, the ‘Men of Summit Heights’ Movember Team and the enthusiastic crowd of students were taped (no students were identified in video taping). The camera man from CTV news hopes to highlight the video clips on the 6:00 news tonight.
Thank you to everyone in the community that supported the teachers fundraising efforts for cancer research. With your help the ‘Men of Summit Heights’ team has contributed over $1500.00 to the Movember movement.
Pictures of the event were taken and will be added to the 2010-2011 school yearbook.

The news item is on the ctv webpage  Look for the video:”Big Picture: Young Movember moustaches”

Thank you,
Thelma Sambrook
