Spring has rolled in which also means to get rid of the heavy coats and put up the winter boots. Summit faculty and staff took a different approach to spring cleaning.

On Saturday, they showed up to make Summit beautiful. Organizations such as cheer, band, JROTC, choir, and several more turned out to plant trees, pick up trash, paint and clean up the campus.

“One of our goals is to foster a sense of school pride and to improve the appearance of our building,” Principal Todd Taylor said. “Also to give our students an opportunity to experience the satisfaction of volunteering to meet the needs of an organization.”

Students were pleased with the chance to better their environment.

“I think anything that shows encouragement towards making this place a good place will help us as a school,” junior Greg Goode said.

Not only did they make the campus more appealing, they also helped out organizations, including band. Members painted dots on the grid map for their upcoming marching season.

“This benefits the band because it makes it easier to find spots,” Kanicki said.

While the band finds its way, students and faculty found common ground.

“I am so proud of our kids, faculty and staff, and our parents,” said Teen Leadership teacher Keli Cullen. “They all came out with open hearts to make Summit better. That’s good Summit love.”
