Principal's Corner

Welcome to the 2013 - 2014 school year. The staff at Sumner has worked very hard over the summer to prepare for an exciting learning year for our students. We are working on many initiatives. One is a Resource Period at the end of the day. It will provide students with enrichment, fun projects, as well as opportunities to extend learning in the classroom.

I am so excited about all the opportunities the staff at Sumner is developing for our students. We have implemented our Alternative Pathways program which allows students to work on only a few credits at a time in smaller increments of time. We are developing our Marine Pathways program, which promises to meet students' needs who wish to pursue careers in marine trades: boat building, fishing, shipping and marketing, research, or marine patrol.

This year we have also launched our Freshmen Academy. Our purpose is to create a better transition to high school for our students. We hope to provide much more support in this first year. Our team of core freshmen teachers are all in the same wing, which helps with communication and meeting student needs. Our students still take electives throughout the school; therefore, they also have the opportunity to interact with the entire school.

Our CSO, Community School Organization, has also worked all summer toward making this once-per-month meeting (the first Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p. m.) a meaningful and informative opportunity for parents and community to learn about all the happenings at Sumner. This is an opportunity to hear the community and parent voice in the education of your children. Please feel free to call me at school: 422- 3510 or email: if you have any questions, concerns, or comments.
