Summit receives iPad minis
Recently, an anonymous benefactor helped Summit Academy continue its mission to form strong Christian leaders.  This donation allowed Summit to purchase twelve iPad minis for math classes that combines Renaissance Learning’s Accelerated Math and the Saxon Math based DIVE program. 
“We are thrilled to utilize the latest in educational technology to continue providing quality education for our students,” says Summit principal Luke Carey. “Our benefactor recognized the potential these programs have for our students and we are humbled and eternally grateful that they made this investment for our future.  These iPads will benefit Summit students for years to come.”
Carey says that the current plan to is use the iPads for their high school and junior high math classes. Margie Colas, a new employee at Summit Academy, will be working as a Math facilitator implementing these new programs.   “Having Mrs. Colas oversee these classes is a tremendous blessing.  Her years of experience, both at the administrative and classroom level will benefit our entire student body. She has already become an indispensable member of our team.  These math programs and tablet technology provide real long-term stability for our school.  This investment is another step to ensure Summit students compete at the highest academic level.” 
All K-12 classes and faculty will have access to the iPads throughout the day as well. “This technology is not just for our junior high and high school.  Our goal is for faculty and students to utilize the latest technology to increase student learning. This investment is a strong statement about Summit’s future and what we offer our families and students.  We are thankful for all of our benefactors who continue to believe in the future of Summit Academy.”

Summit 1st/2nd grade active
Summit Academy’s First and Second Grade Classes are enjoying the preparation for the start of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod starts on March 2, 2013 in Anchorage, Alaska. The Musher Teams will travel 1049 miles over the world’s most treacherous wild lands ending their journey in Nome, Alaska.  
The students have researched different Musher’s and chosen teams to follow throughout the race. They will be tracking their teams’ progress using the modern technology of GPS tracking, every team carries a tracker, live camera feeds, each racer wears a camera while on the trail, and checkpoint updates via the internet. The kids will graph the weather temperatures, the checkpoint times, and the miles traveled by their teams each day. 
Mrs. Sonnen’s class has put recycling into practice while recycling 268 gallon milk jugs which they used to build their Inuit Indian Reading Igloo. “The boys love spending their free reading time in the Reading Igloo, it makes reading about the Iditarod and Inuit Indians even more fun!”, said Mrs. Sonnen.  
Another technological advance we love using are the new iPads, donated by a very generous  anonymous donor, to read our daily newsletters, Zuma’s Pawprints, learning how the Iditarod race is put together, how the dogs are cared for, the names for the equipment the mushers use, what they take on the trail and other very interesting and educational information.
The students are learning new technological skills in a safe, educational environment, while enjoying the Iditarod newsletters.  First and Second graders are using the new iPads to improve their chess skills, taking lessons online, learning new strategies, moves and countermoves. “What an awesome opportunity the children have been given. 
The boys are looking forward to a Chess Tournament with the third and fourth grade class…they’re good, they beat me soundly!” said Mrs. Sonnen.
