Summit students worked together to raise money and food for the St. Mary’s  Cottonwood Food Pantry. Shown here (back row left – right) Mr. Dalton, Alejandro Kopczynski, Patrick Chmelik, Lauren Stubbers, Tyler Krogh, Ally Sonnen, Ellie Watson.  Front row (l to r) Jake Stubbers, Justin Wassmuth, and Luke Schwartz. In celebration of Thanksgiving, each class at Summit Academy had been given a box to collect canned food for the food bank.  A class could “steal” canned food from another classes’ box if they donated $.25 per can in the collection jar.  The class with the most canned food at the end of the contest, on November 24th would then be declared the win and would receive as a reward cocoa and donuts on November 26th.  In the end, the Summit students collected a total of 450 cans and $103, the winning class being 9th-10th grades.  Thanks be to God for all who supported the students in this project!
