October is Pinktober…National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know?

• Wyandotte County leads the nation in breast cancer deaths (2014)?

• Nearly 40% of women in this county were not screened (2014)?

• When breast cancer is diagnosed at an early, local stage, five-year survival rates are as high as 97%.

Are you at risk?

• 1 out of every 8 women will develop breast cancer during her life.

• Women with a mother or sister who had breast cancer have a higher risk of breast cancer.

• 1,900 Kansas women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year as it is the most common cancer among women in Kansas.

Don’t wait to be screened!  You can contact a clinic, hospital, or doctor’s office to schedule an appointment.  To see if you qualify 

for a free breast cancer screening, call Early Detections Works at 1-913-205-0030 or 1-877-277-1368.  This program pays for 

clinical breast exams, mammograms, pap tests and diagnostic services.

Principal’s Perspective- October 2017

Sumner Parents, Students and Community Members,

October is here and we have many exciting happenings at Sumner Academy.  Homecoming week is October 2nd-6th.  Major events include Student Council theme days (daily), pep rally and athletic/extra-curricular events.  The culmination of this special week is the Homecoming Dance on Saturday, October 7th.  The dance is held in the Sumner Gym from 7:00-10:30 PM.  The cost to attend is $10 for tickets purchased before October 4th, and $15 for those purchasing after that date.  If a student plans to bring a guest, a Guest Approval Form must be completed and turned in to room 309 no later than October 4th at 3:00 PM.  This is a grade 9-12 activity. 

Family Advocacy Parent-Teacher Conferences take place in October.  Please note the following logistical information:

Date:  Wednesday, October 18th and Thursday, October 19th

Time:  1:30-6:00 (Wednesday) and 10:00 AM- 4:30 PM (Thursday)

*** Staff will be on lunch break from 12:30-1:30 on Thursday, October 19th

A reminder that due to conferences and teacher workshops, school will not be in session the following days:

Friday, October 13th (Teacher Workshop)

Thursday, October 19th (Conferences)

Friday, October 20th (Teacher Release Day)

Parents, please note the following important policy notification regarding student negative lunch balances:

“Beginning October 2nd, 2017, the school cafeteria manager will be printing notifications for students with greater than -$20 in meal charges, placing them in sealed envelopes with student names, and giving to the office for delivery to students. The notification will prompt the student to visit the cafeteria manager before going through the lunch line to receive an alternative meal.” 

Please note that per policy, starting Monday, October 2nd students with a negative meal balance greater than $20.00 will no longer be able to charge for lunch.  Students in this situation will be given an alternative meal provided by the school.  If this situation applies to your student, I urge you immediately to reach out to Ms. Melissa Schleicher at (913) 627-7223 to rectify the situation.

Finally, our Sumner Parent-Teacher-Student Organization is moving forward in support of our learning community. We invite you to join our President, Ms. Nancy Krueger on Monday, October 2nd at 6:00 PM in the Sumner Library for the October PTSO meeting.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn the latest happenings and ways that you can support Sumner students!

As always, thank you for your continued support for our students and staff.
