Curriculum Night:

Curriculum Night is an open house time in September for parents to meet classroom teachers, specialists and the principal.  Parents are invited to their child’s classroom(s) to hear the teacher(s) discuss the curriculum for the year.  Teachers also use this opportunity to inform parents of expectations, policies and procedures that are unique to their individual classroom.

Parents may ask questions and look at materials in the room.  Curriculum Night is not intended for discussion of individual children or their progress.  This evening is planned for parents without their children.  No child care is provided.  The dates of the Curriculum Nights are:

Grades KG-1 Monday, September 18th @ 5:00-6:00 PM

Grades 2-3 Tuesday, September 19th @ 5:00-6:00 PM

Grades 4-5 Thursday, September 21st @ 5:00-6:00 PM


Message from the Principal:

Today, September 15th, 2017, the staff and students at Sumpter Elementary School participated in a lockdown drill. Students were told by staff that we would be practicing being safe just as we do for other drills, prior to this drill beginning. The purpose of this drill was to prepare our students and staff for any emergency that may occur where it may be necessary for us to lock down classrooms and/or the entire building. We conduct drills because we want students and staff members to be safe as well as to develop an awareness of their roles in these various scenarios. Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding today’s lockdown drill.
