Principal's Corner

The 2014 - 2015 school year has started off well. Our staff and students are working hard! Our upperclassmen expressed an interest to really get to know the underclassmen. In response to this, we started off the year resurrecting Pride Days. Our students divided up into teams comprised of all grade levels. We had a school-wide barbecue for lunch and ended the day in the cafeteria. This set a positive tone to start the year.

We are in the process of electing class officers and launching this year's Student Government team. These two groups will once again meet with me once per week to ensure Student Voice in the school. Similarly, our Parent Group will meet on the first Wednesday of the month. Our first meeting is Wednesday, October 1st! All parents are welcome. We start off with an open agenda so that parents can ask questions, share thoughts, or just talk about happenings in school.

We have a new Assistant Principal / Athletic Director, Shannon Sawyer! She has made some positive improvements in our school. Feel free to call her with any questions about our extra curricular programs or discipline / attendance issues.

For any other questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at school: 422- 3510 or email: I speak for the entire staff at Sumner, when I say how much we appreciate our school and students! Go tigers!!
