Summit Lakes Middle School collects clothing for students in need
The Summit Lakes Middle School PTA collected 1,478 pounds of new and gently used clothing to help students in need. The clothing, which was collected during October parent-teacher conferences, went to Just One, an organization designed to support the needs of Lee’s Summit R-7 students.

Families were asked to donate fall and winter clothing with an emphasis on items that would fit a middle-school age child. Other clothing items were also accepted.
SLMS grade-level teams competed during the clothing drive with the winning team from each grade level earning an ice cream celebration. Winning teams were the 7 Falcon and 8 Blue.
"I think the clothing drive was amazing,” said Nick Harris. “We had so many more clothes than expected -- it wouldn't even all fit into one car. And the best part was my team won."
