Principal’s Perspective- March 2018

Sumner Parents, Students and Community Members,

March is here, and our students are beginning the home-stretch towards Graduation and the coming 2018-19 school year.  We still have plenty of work left to do this school year, including the Kansas Assessment Program Testing starting later this month and  the International Baccalaureate Exams starting in May.  If your student is involved in testing, be on the lookout for information as we get closer to those dates.

Spring Break week starts Monday, March 12th and concludes Friday, March 16th.  Our main office will be closed during spring break.  Also, a reminder that there is no school on Friday, March 9th due to teacher workshops.  We hope that parents and students have an opportunity to spend quality time together over break.

With the recent tragedy in Florida, school safety and support has been the subject of many conversations in KCK and other cities across the country.  While we have numerous policies and procedures in place to support school safety, our best line of defense is active and involved parents, siblings, grandparents and friends supporting  the needs of our students.  Simply checking-in each evening with your student and asking how his or her day went is a great place to start.  We are all busy parents (myself included) and sometimes it is hard to find time to sit and engage our kids, especially as they get older.  I encourage us all to work together to engage our kids, listen to their concerns and provide for them the best we can.

As always, if you have any questions please contact us at (913) 627-7200.
