Students are required to pack a lunch, a snack, and a drink (students should always bring and carry refillable water bottles throughout the school day), and are encouraged to take as much time as they need to eat. Recess is enjoyed either before or after lunch, depending on grade level.
Students of all ages will have at least one recess break per day.
We recognize that students are working hard while they’re at school, and sometimes our brains simply need a break, even if it’s not during a scheduled recess break time. Teachers are aware of the individual needs of our students and work with them to allow the “downtime” they require to thrive.
Specials & Clubs
Classes such as genius hour, art, music, health, and physical education are held once a week. Club related activities like yoga, ski club, leadership club, athletics clubs, etc. are a favorite and also occur weekly. Participation in clubs is driven by student choice.
School Meeting is held once a week and is attended by all students and staff. Here, students and staff discuss and vote on school issues, rules, and suggestions.
At Summit School of the Poconos, we put a great deal of emphasis on restorative justice in order to settle disagreements and conflict. Our popular Leadership Club helps to filter and disseminate information and works to create and implement student centered events.
We have an obligation to keep our school neat and clean and to care for and respect the space entrusted to us. Students will be expected to clean up after themselves, and most days will end with rotating responsibilities of light chores, such as sweeping the floors and dusting before dismissal. Some older student classrooms participate in a Class Employment System (CES) that offers them experiences akin to the “real world.”
