To the Summit community:

On November 3rd, 2013, Summit High School music students participated in the annual Pledge Day fundraiser, sponsored by the Summit Music Parents Association.  Almost 200 young musicians knocked on doors all over town, and spoke enthusiastically with residents about the music program in the school district.  We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the community, which enabled us to raise over $31,000.  We are especially grateful to the more than 65 people who weren't home on 11/3, but took the time to mail in donations.  The money collected is directly invested in the music program, which includes master classes, workshops, scholarships and subsidies for the spring music trip.  On behalf of the SMPA, many thanks to Summit for its continuing support of our students' music education.
