The annual Summit for the Planet festival means a lot to me and to the Mount Madonna School community. Summit for the Planet is the time when the entire school comes together to raise money to fund our school programs and celebrate Earth Day April 27. All of the students join and work together to help our school. This effort requires team work from our whole school community to be able to set and reach a fundraising goal.
Summit for the Planet represents a time when we all have fun together. At the start of the school year, middle and high school students go on different field trips to learn more about each other and bond. But during Summit for the Planet all grades mix together, preschool through seniors. We all come together as a community and play the games the elementary classes have created, listens to songs, watches (or participate in) the Trash Fashion show, and showcases their science projects. Summit for the Planet is a great event for the school to raise funds and awareness, and also to build stronger, meaningful connections among the students.
