“The beat goes on.” Even without the lyrics as a clue, Cher look-alike Sierra Sheets, a kindergarten teacher’s aide at Summit Academy Community School for Alternative Learners – Canton, nailed it with her costume commemorating Celebrity Day, yesterday. In a fun twist, student Kristen dressed like Miss Sheets. The day kicked off National School Choice Week, which both Summit Academy – Canton schools are celebrating this week.
“At Summit Academy School for Alternative Learners – Canton and Summit Academy Secondary School – Canton, we are thankful for school choice and the options it provides for our families. Having the ability to choose an educational program that fits the needs of individuals is a huge benefit in Ohio and we are grateful,” says Director Tiffany George. “We at Canton Elementary and Canton Secondary are partnering with National School Choice Week to celebrate our schools and the positive impact they have on learning in our community.”
Canton students and staff are celebrating throughout the week, wearing their favorite sports teams gear today; donning garb representing various stages of life, from newborn to senior citizen, tomorrow; and dressing in green and yellow school colors on Thursday. The shared activities nurture camaraderie and salute school spirit.
“We are proud of our schools and excited to continue to grow in our community as more families learn who we are and what our programs provide,” George says.
