Hey Sumner –

December's Principal's Perspective

Sumner Parents, Students and Community Members,

December is here and we are near the end of the 1st semester.  I strongly encourage parents to review your student’s grades using the School Loop site.  Have conversations with your student about what needs to happen between now and December 19th to ensure they have the best grades possible. 

Please note the winter 2017 Final Exam Schedule:

  • Thursday, December 14th:  Block 1, Block 2, AEP, Block 3
  • Friday, December 15th:  AEP, Block 4, AEP, Block 5
  • Monday, December 18th:  AEP, Block 6, AEP, Block 7
  • Tuesday, December 19th:  Crunch Day- Make-Up Exams

Winter Break for students begins on Wednesday, December 19th and runs through Wednesday, January 3rd.  Students return to school on Thursday, January 4th  for a full day of learning.  Please know that our offices will be closed Thursday, December 21th- Tuesday, January 2nd.  Teachers and Office Staff will return to work on Wednesday, January 3rd.  If your student is involved in an athletic activity that has practices or games scheduled over the break, your team’s coach will be in touch to share those schedules with you.  You can also contact our Athletic Director, Mrs. Karri Whitney at (913) 627-7200.

I want to remind parents, students and community members that the Sumner Academy Parent-Teacher-Student Organization meeting for December takes place on Monday, December 4th at 6:00 PM.  The meeting will take place in the Library.  We look forward to seeing you then. 

Parents, as I am sure you are aware, issues of harassment, misconduct and workplace/professional behavior have been a hot topic across our country the past several months.  Encouraging thoughtful conversations with your student concerning what they are seeing on TV and social media will provide them a platform to learn and grow based on the mentorship of caring adults in their lives.  As part of this conversation, I encourage you to consider you student’s use of social media and ensure they are making good decisions in what they post and consume.  While we certainly encourage our students to be socially and politically active, be sure to consider the long-term ramifications of those social media posts.

Speaking of social media, If you have not already done so, make sure you follow us on Twitter @kckps_sumner to get the latest news and information about our school.
