The 6th annual NSS Fall Festival 5K run/walk & 1 mile run will be held on Saturday, October 14th at New Summit School. We will be hosting an award ceremony and comedy magic show event afterwards.

All proceeds from the race will go to New Summit School Athletic Program.

Following the 5k run/walk and 1 mile run, we will be having a fall festival with lots of fun activities including: a comedy magic show, pumpkin ring toss, fall finger painting, jumpees, ice cream shop and so much more. We will have food and entertainment. Wrist bands are on sale for $15.00 which includes unlimited activities and lunch. We would like to give a special thanks to our event sponsor Families First For Mississippi for sponsoring our event.

New Summit School was established in 1997 as a full-time school offering classes for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Although New Summit School (NSS) is designed similarly to traditional schools, emphasis is placed on keeping instructional groups small and teaching to the individual student in a positive and stimulating environment. NSS is committed to an educational philosophy that considers the diverse needs of today’s students and families. Our goal is to promote academic achievement and social growth within an environment enriched by economic and ethnic diversity.
