SUMMIT, NJ - Thanks to the efforts of one talented artist and the catalytic effort of their PTO Garden Chair, Brayton Elementary School has a new sundial.

Artist Duncan Mackenzie recently installed the sundial, a project that was spearheaded by Brayton PTO Garden Chair Heather Eisenmenger, who revived the idea and worked through the Summit Education Foundation (SEF) who funded it.
 
The sundial sit is located on the blacktop outside the second- and third-grade dismissal doors.  Brayton's students helped artist Mackenzie hand-paint the design, and met with him to learn how to tell time using it.
 
Brayton Principal Dr. Cheryl Moretz said, "In 2012, Mrs. Eisenmenger became the steward of the outdoor garden. Through PTO support, the concept of the sundial at Brayton became a reality."
