Although Summit families would like to be together looking at books in the Aerobics Room, we are fortunate that Bookmarks has been able to create their First-Ever Virtual Book Fair, designed especially for Summit! It has been a challenge but the great titles and usual fun events that the Summit and Bookmarks teams provide are offered again this year. Thank you for your patience and understanding of this new format, and hopefully, we will be "in-person" next year.
In an environment of political divisiveness, strong opinions, and sometimes aggressive dialogue (especially on the Internet), explaining the root of different values and beliefs to your children can be difficult. We invite you to watch research professor and lecturer Brené Brown as she explores this topic and gives great suggestions on how to speak with your children about this issue.
To our students, families, faculty, staff, alumni/ae, and community members who are grieving and suffering through these recent events within the context of a long history of racial injustice and inequality: We see you, we love you, and we support you. You are not alone. We are here with you. Our hearts ache for you. We stand beside you.
Each of us is part of something larger than ourselves.
