PA-Sponsored student Events

Join in the fun! The Parents’ Association sponsors a number of social events for Summit students throughout the year. These activities give students an opportunity to socialize with each other on the weekends. Events typically cost between $15 and $35 per student to help defray costs and are nonrefundable. You can pay by credit card online; an email confirmation will be sent when your payment is complete. Or you can pay by check; checks will be cashed after the event.

All events are subject to change.

All events will be announced in PA eBlasts which will include registration and payment information.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or would like to organize a special event, email us at pa@summitqueens.com

TYPICAL PA-SPONSORED EVENTS FOR LOWER SCHOOL STUDENTS

All children must be accompanied by an adult unless otherwise noted. Parents can mingle in a separate area during most events.

Family Bowling 
An afternoon of bowling makes for a fun-filled start to the academic year. Summit’s family bowling event takes place early in the school year and has recently been held at the spacious Lucky Strike Lanes in Manhattan. Siblings are welcome to participate.

Book Fair 
Each November, we create an in-school pop-up store that introduces students to a wide variety of books and authors. Entry is free, but it’s hard to leave without at least one of the many exciting offerings: art appreciation books, volumes for animal and nature lovers, old and new series, a huge selection of games that develop skills, and of course joke books and bookmarks. All of the proceeds benefit Summit’s Lower School, helping to purchase additional books for in-classroom libraries and specialty resources.

Overnight Trip
Get ready for a night you’ll long remember! Explore Liberty Science Center under the cover of darkness with your Summit classmates. With exclusive film screenings, engaging activities, and snoozing under the exhibits instead of stars (no mosquitoes!), a Camp In at Liberty Science Center is the perfect group experience. Our overnight Camp In package is designed to provide our children with an experience that fosters independence and social interaction, as well as to travel with friends and to make new ones. All while being supervised by people who know them.

Holiday Boutique 
With its huge array of items $10 and under, the Summit Holiday Boutique is a phenomenal opportunity for Lower School students to shop on their own for the special people in their lives during the holiday season. The PA will provide students with worksheets to help them plan, budget, and apply their math skills.

Eat, Drink & Play
We recognize that it’s hard to get back into the swing of things after the winter holiday break. In January/February, a day at Dave & Buster’s in Times Square will cure anyone’s cabin fever. Siblings are welcome.

New York Mets Baseball 
Joining Summit’s outing to Citi Field is always a home run. Open to both Lower and Upper School students and their sports-fan families.

Day Trip to Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari
Come together for the day and socialize with Summit families and students. Only at Six Flags Great Adventure can you share thrills on Green Lantern, laughter with Bugs Bunny, and screams on Zumanjaro Drop of Doom -- a truly unique experience. Nothing will bring you closer than sharing a ride on El Toro or classics like the carousel. Lower School students must be accompanied by parents.

Summit Family Fishing Trip
Don’t let the big one get away! Open to both Upper and Lower School families, Summit’s fishing trip sails out of Port Washington for an afternoon trip usually on Father’s Day weekend. Everything’s included -- bait, line, sinkers, drinks, and snacks --  so come and enjoy the day out on the water.

 

 

TYPICAL PA-SPONSORED EVENTS FOR UPPER SCHOOL STUDENTS

Chaperoned by at least two Summit staff members, the events are designed to give Upper School students an opportunity to socialize with each other on the weekends without parents.

Weekend Getaway
Join fellow students and staff chaperones at Woodloch Pines Family Resort in Pennsylvania’s four-season Pocono Mountains in November. Woodloch is about bringing people together, and having a ton of fun doing it! Our two-night package is designed to provide our children with an experience that fosters independence and social interaction, as well as to travel with friends and to make new ones. All while being supervised by people who know them.

Bowling 
An afternoon of bowling makes for a fun-filled start to the academic year. This get-together takes place early in the school year and has recently been held at the spacious Lucky Strike Lanes in Manhattan.

Let Us Entertain You 
Besides getting together for bowling and gaming, Upper School students have welcomed the addition of an afternoon of in-person gaming at Indoor Extreme Sports in Long Island City (Queens) and an afternoon of team building at one of the many Mystery Rooms in New York City.

New York Mets Baseball
Our annual May outing to Citi Field is always a home run. Open to both Upper and Lower School students and their sports-fan families. Note that all students must be accompanied by an adult.
