Summit High School Student Council To Host 'Winter Festival' Dec. 21

This fundraiser will benefit Sandy relief and clubs at Summit High School. Activities include photo booth, arts and crafts, carnival games, silent auction, and baked goods.

During the last day of school in 2012, Friday, Dec. 21, the Summit High School student council will host the “Winter Festival,” which will take place all day during students' physical education periods.

The festival is a fundraiser, with half the money raised going to Hurricane Sandy relief and the other 50 percent being divided evenly among SHS clubs.

The second year of this event will, once again, have a photo booth area, arts and craft station, and carnival games. Additionally, students can participate in a basketball tournament, football toss, or ping-pong contest.

Junior Abby DePhillips will showcase and sell her baked goods from her newly formed baking business.

A new element to the Winter Festival this year is the addition of the silent auction, which is co-sponsored by the SHS PTO. The student council will auction 28 Christmas trees; each decorated by a different sports team, club or academic department. Students, parents, teachers, staff and the community can bid on the trees, which will be displayed in the SHS lobby, on Thursday and Friday, Dec. 20 and 21, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Bidding will also take place during the Board of Education meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20. The trees can be picked up by the winners after school hours on Friday, Dec. 21.

Editor's note: the above information was submitted to Summit Patch from the Summit School District and can also be found on the district's website.

It warms my heart in the midst of all this sadness of the past week to see kids doing positive things. Sadly there is nothing to donate in the memory of the school shooting but maybe the kids can write some sympathy notes sharing what's in their hearts at this sad time. When I was a child there were many sad happenings but I don't remember anyone doing a benefit. Maybe it's because I lived through WW2 where we brought in our smashed cans and papers for defense and I knitted scarves for the troops. Keep up the good work student council.
