students try kite fighting
A big thanks to Rick and Dan of Les Schwab Tire Center in Grangeville, Idaho. Summit Academy students of all ages had the opportunity to create their own kites and fly them. An exciting event this spring was kite fighting with our unique designs of combat kites. The last kite in the sky wins. Each grade level tied kites in with an academic area such as shapes with the youngest, and an older class working with Technical and Report Writing/Illustrating. The 7th & 8th grade class put a different twist into the program by choosing a group apostolate. These students set up an assembly line manufacturing 100 kites and an equal number of little parachutes, sending them to poor children in Mexico.
All kite and parachute designs used the yellow Les Schwab tire bags, as they are lightweight, elastic, and super strong. Just what kids and kites need! Besides that, Les Schwab’s picture is in the sky all over the Cottonwood area.
Thanks again to Les Schwab for their donation. The month of kite making, flying, and learning was made very special by your thoughtfulness. May God bless all of you in your business in serving the public this summer.
