Principal’s Perspective- April 2018

Sumner Parents, Students and Community Members,

In April,  Sumner Academy students will be very busy.  In addition to the many academic, club and athletic responsibilities, students will also be engaging in state and International Baccalaureate (IB) testing this month.  In terms of state testing, students in grades 8, 10 and 11 will be completing content exams in the disciplines of Science, Math, English Language Arts and Social Studies. 

Students from homes where English is not the first language completed the KELPA exam in March.  The culmination of state testing is the regional ACT exam for students in grade 11 on Tuesday, April 3rd.  IB testing will begin late this month for students involved in the program.  Check your email for testing information as we get closer to testing dates.

As our Seniors close in on their final days at Sumner, we wanted to share several reminders:

  • Make sure your graduation regalia has been ordered.  Jostens is the organization we work with for senior orders.  If you have questions please contact Ms. Shelton or Ms. Olbert at (913) 627-7200.
  • Outstanding fees must be handled prior to the last day of school.
  • Senior finals will take place Wednesday, May 9th thru Wednesday, May 16th
  • The final day of school for all seniors is Wednesday, May 16th

As part of the bond that was passed by voters a few years ago, Sumner Academy is scheduled to undergo extensive renovations this summer.  Because of the work taking place, Sumner Academy will close on Thursday, May 24th and will not reopen until Monday, August 6th.  All summer activities that normally take place at Sumner will be moved to alternate locations.  Please be alert for information from coaches/sponsors concerning summer athletic/marching conditioning schedules and locations.

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