2013 Online Summer School: July 1 - August 8, 2013
This six-week program is for Sumner School District students who would like to recover up to one high school credit, or for students who wish to take an initial credit class in order to move ahead or free up a class period during the school year for an additional class. All courses are provided through Aventa K12 Learning, America’s largest provider of online education for grades K-12.
Initial credit courses are for students entering grades 9-11 who are taking a course for the first time or who would like to improve a grade in a course previously completed.
Credit recovery courses are for students entering grades 10-12 or for seniors who did not graduate and have already failed to earn a credit in a particular class.
Students may enroll in one course at a time. Please see your school counselor for questions regarding correct course placement.

(Principal Update sent May 1, 2013 via school messages)
Recently, I put forth a challenge to our school family to purposefully take time to honor and acknowledge those in our lives who make a positive difference, inspire us or do the little things to make us intentionally pause in our steps and cause us to smile. This challenge has caused me to be more purposeful in my own actions towards others.
My challenge to our school family was to pick one student, one colleague, one person in your life outside of school, and share how they make a positive difference in your life or day. The communication can be verbal, written and/or with a reinforcing action. It does not have to be mushy (for you non-mushy types) but it should be authentic. In a number of recent related studies, the result of this type of challenge has proven to energize both the provider and the recipient.
At this time of year I am also reminded the school year "marathon" is quickly approaching the sprint to the end, especially for our seniors. Parents, students and teachers are all reminded of deadlines regarding the multiple responsibilities and graduation requirements of our seniors. It is vital to us that we keep students and parents in the communication loop, especially those who are in borderline situations. Teachers and counselors will be in contact with parents informing them of any concerns, especially if their student is not passing. The timelines are extremely important and must be met. Please work with our teachers and counselors and communicate early if you are concerned.
