Student Council will be holding a gently used toy drive in December. The toys will be donated to the Foster Care Support Center. The center is a place for foster parents to get items their foster children need at no cost. They were so excited to receive the winter coats we collected. Please make sure toys are in good condition with all of the pieces. New toys are also welcome. The toy drive will be held from December 2nd – December 17th. We will hold a special dress up day – tacky holiday sweater – for students who donate a toy.

Strong4Life Program Coming to Summit Hill!!
Last year, 19 FCS Elementary Schools piloted the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's
Strong4Life program, and due to the successful impact, the Fulton County School
Nutrition Program is extending the opportunity to 10 additional elementary schools
this school year. I'm excited to share with you that Summit Hill Elementary School
has been selected as one of the ten schools to benefit from the Strong4Life Program
in School Year 13-14!
Georgia has a high rate of childhood obesity, and parents, families, communities, schools,
and food manufacturers all play a role in stopping this epidemic. While all Fulton County
School menus meet tough new federal nutrition guidelines to ensure healthy and
well-balanced meals for students, the Strong4Life Program gives us a unique
opportunity to further impact children by improving the environment and generating
excitement in the school cafeteria.
The Strong4Life program includes the events listed below:
- Students will receive take-home materials such as a water bottle, t-shirt,
and information pack on the program.
- Students and staff will participate in a Pep Rally: two 40-minute live and
interactive health education lesson next Wednesday afternoon.
- The Strong 4Life Staff will return to SHE during PE classes and throughout
lunch times to reinforce the 4 healthy habits Thursday December 19, 2013
and Tuesday February 18, 2014.
- Students and staff will participate in the "Be Active" Main Event on Wednesday
April 30, 2014 (when students and staff wear their t-shirts!!) from 8-11am.
Stay tuned for more information about this day when parents will be invited
to join us!
This program mirrors some of the events and enthusiasm and spirit of an event
from years ago. However, students are not collecting pledges, raising funds, or
We as a community, in partnership with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Fulton
County Schools Food Services Program, will be modeling and encouraging students
to Be Active in our day-to-day lives!

CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION
If there is a change in the manner in which a child is to leave school,
the teacher must receive a note from the parent stating the change;
otherwise, the child will be sent home in the usual manner. Do not rely
on email to notify the teacher of any changes. Please do not call the school
with changes unless it is an emergency. Please note that children may
not ride any bus other than their assigned bus. In the event of an
emergency, please contact the Transportation Department at 770-667-2970
