Mrs. Trude Heller Speaks at Summit Drive
Please join us Thursday, February 4th at 9:30 in the cafeteria to listen to a piece of living history!  Mrs. Trude Heller, a survivor of the concentration camps during World War II, will be honoring us as she shares her experiences with the fifth graders at Summit Drive.  Mrs. Heller was married to our longtime mayor, Max Heller, and her own children attended Summit Drive!  Students in fifth grade are currently studying WWII in Social Studies as well as how to be a productive global citizen through our STEAM project this year.   Mrs. Heller wants to share her story and message of love with as many people as she can touch, and so we invite you to come join us and bring your friends and family!  


Girls on the Run Will Be Offered This Semester!


Girls on the Run is a curriculum based afterschool program that teaches girls in grades 3-5 about self-esteem, problem solving, healthy decision making and standing up for herself and her values. The program concludes with a community 5K race that all the girls participate in.

Every season Girls on the Run provides scholarships to families that cannot afford the $199 participation fee. Last fall they awarded over $9,000 to 70 girls across Greenville and Pickens County.

Summit Drive is proud to announce that we plan to host this program from Feb 17 - May 10 Mondays and Thursdays from 2:45 - 4:15 p.m.‚Äč
