We had a great turnout and it was a beautiful evening to spend with our families. I know my little boy had a blast and it was so great to see past, present, and future Summitt students!
I would also like to say a huge thank you to Concentra Healthcare, Dr. Sheneaka Jackson, My Fit Foods, YES! Fitness and Youth Sports, Anderson High School wrestling team and my husband for running the lacrosse demo! And thanks to Tina Ross for leading our Zumba class!

- Fifth grade parents: Want to get in on the ground floor at Murchison Middle School? Consider volunteering! It’s a great way to get to know other students, teachers, and just get a feel for our awesome middle school.
Might we suggest the Murchison Library? Library volunteers offer much needed assistance to the librarian during the busy lunch hour as well as after school. Work one day a week, every other week, or share a shift with a friend and come in once a month. Options available! We could also use your help with book fair in the spring. And let’s be honest here – what’s better than kids and books?? For more information contact Nancy Barton at nancymillerbarton@austin.rr.com
