Igniting the school year, Summit Academy’s Formation Director Mrs. Lustig encouraged the virtue of kindness. K-12 students were coached throughout September on how to become more generous, helpful, and concerned for others. Blessed Mother Theresa was their role-model. She cared for the sick. She aided the dying. She saw the face of God in the poor and helpless. Despite her many hardships, Blessed Mother Theresa learned to show cheerfulness habitually. The 1st—2nd Grades were awarded for mirroring her example the best amongst the entire student body. We thank you, 1-2nd Graders! We of Summit Academy pray that all of us, as we grow in the gift of faith in Jesus Christ, may increase in the virtue of kindness throughout the rest of the school year. Summit Academy’s Kindness Campaign Winners: Mrs. Sonnen, Mrs. Lustig, Connor Nuxoll, Phillip Schwartz, Kaden Krogh, Thomas Rose Top: Greta Watson, Sarah Waters, Rachel Sonnen, Julia Wassmuth and Noelle Chmelik
The Kindergarten class at Summit Academy initiated a campaign to "Light our Flag". Student body President Josh Lustig had suggested the idea of a light on our outdoor flag, so the Kindergarten class collected money from the students in every grade for the last 2 weeks and presented the cash to Josh Lustig and the Summit Student Government. Pictured (left to right) are: Mrs. Rehder and Josh Lustig in the back Nathan Wassmuth and Catherine Seubert in the front row.
Summit teacher Michelle Sonnen signs the Oath of Fidelity while other Summit staff members line up to do the same.
On October 16, to express their faithfulness to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, Summit Academy’s faculty and staff publicly signed the Oath of Fidelity. The teachers promised to “hold fast to the deposit of the faith in its entirety…[to] follow and foster the common discipline of the entire Church…[and to] faithfully assist diocesan Bishops, so that the apostolic activity, exercised in the name and by the mandate of the Church, may be carried out in communion with the Church.” Father Paul Wander witnessed the signing during the Thursday morning Mass at St. Mary’s parish. Following the ceremony, Principal Mr. James Hickel, presented to Father Paul a tissue box serendipitously stuffed with letters of thanks and gifts. Summit Academy honored Father Paul for Clergy Appreciation month in October, and thanked Father Paul for his support and kindness toward the school’s goal to remain faithful to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
