The New Summit Charter Academy Love of Learning Gala was designed as a fun night out for our school community to raise money that will be invested in our children’s future and help to foster their love of learning. Our hope is that this event will bring our community together and help to build relationships with those around us.
Since the Love of Learning Gala will be a yearly event, we wanted to choose a color with meaning. Our main color theme is Purple and Lavender.
The color purple is a rare occurring color in nature and as a result, it is often seen as having a sacred meaning. Purple has a variety of effects on the mind and body, including uplifting the spirits, calming the mind and nerves, enhancing the sacred, creating feelings of spirituality, increasing nurturing tendencies and sensitivity, and encouraging imagination and creativity.
75% of children tend to prefer purple over other colors, most likely because it is considered magical and unique.
Purple also symbolizes wisdom which is another word for knowledge. Knowledge – Core Knowledge is the basis of our curriculum as well as our school. It also is the color that stands for the humanitarian meaning of doing good for others and achieving a lot for the less fortunate which is something New Summit strives to do.
The color lavender suggests uniqueness and specialness and lavender flowers are considered to be delicate and precious – just like all the children we serve.
