Sumner Academy Math Camp

July 24 - 28, 2017

8:30 - 11:00 am

Sumner Academy is offering a summer math camp to new students entering Sumner in the fall of 2017.  The purpose of the workshop is to review the student’s present math background and to introduce math concepts necessary for success at Sumner.  The camp is optional for students, but it is highly recommended!  There is no charge for the camp.  It is provided free as a service to our new students.  Students are responsible for their own transportation – the district does not provide transportation.  

Congratulations Art Students

Congratulations to senior Thao Nguyen for winning first place at the Congressional Art Show. Her work will be sent to Washington D.C. where it will hang in the U.S. Capital building for a year. Congrats Thao!

Also special recognition goes out to Alice Her who received 2nd place. Alice is the first 8th grader at Sumner to place in this competition.

Great job girls!

Internet Safety

1. Keep Your Online Identity Secret

Don’t tell anyone your real name and address or what neighborhood you live in. Here’s the general rule: Don’t give out any information that a predator could possibly use to find you. The Federal Trade Commission says that even “small clues” like what school you attend or the name of your athletic team is enough for a predator to figure out your identity.

2. Your Username and Password Belong to You … And Only You

Don’t give your username or password to anyone. It's just that simple. What if a friend logs on and pretends to be you, and then says something really awful and gets you in trouble? Sure, it might seem funny to the “former” friend, but it’s serious and it happens every day. With your username and password, someone can post language that gets you expelled from school, in trouble with your parents, or even in trouble with the law. Keep your name and password private.

3. Other Tips

Only accept friend requests from people you KNOW.

Make sure your privacy settings on Facebook are set to private.

If you post photos, make sure that they are only visible to your friends and are not public (you can change this in settings).

If you get any unwelcome or suspicious messages on Facebook, report the messages to Facebook and block the person from contacting you.

Be safe!
