HIV/STD Prevention Curriculum Review Night
The Sumner School District is hosting a curriculum review night allowing families the opportunity to preview HIV/STD prevention curriculum for students in grades 4-12, in addition to health and human development materials for students in grades 4 and 5.
The District has adopted the state model, KNOW HIV/STD Prevention, a comprehensive education curriculum widely used by Washington state school districts to fulfill the state's requirement for providing AIDS education to their students.
Prevention Curriculum Review Night
December 8, 2015
4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Sumner High School, Library Resource Center
All grade-level curriculum will be available for preview, including videos. This is an opportunity for parents and guardians to understand the health content at each grade level, preview teaching materials and ask questions about the resources used in the classroom.
Parents wishing to exclude their child from the HIV/STD curriculum required by our state must preview this curriculum and sign an exclusion form.
Not all Santa's wear red hats and have a beard: Winter Wishes 2015!
What is Winter Wishes?
Winter Wishes is the annual holiday celebration the students and staff put on from the beginning of November to the last day before winter break. Each student has the ability to make three wishes: one wish for themselves, and two wishes for anyone else that they feel deserves a wish. These wishes range from items as simple as a Starbucks drink, to items as big as a letterman's jacket. Students made their wishes in early November.
Where do Winter Wishes go?
After students wish, the wishes are hung on a wishing wall in Sumner High School for everyone to see.
How many wishes were granted last year?
Last year Sumner High School and Community members granted over 500 wishes, and raised over $6,000 to make the holiday season special for as many students and staff members as they could.
How to grant a Winter Wish?
To grant a wish students and staff have to take wishes from the Wishing Wall. The wishes are identified with a number so it is confidential who’s wish is being granted. Once students or staff have selected the wish they want to grant, they pick up the item, and bring the item along with the slip of paper from the Wishing Wall to the guidance office. Wishes that have been granted are delivered to the recipients during 4th period (10:40 a.m. -11:40 a.m.)
Can I grant a wish if I'm not a student or staff member?
Yes! If you are interested in granting a winter wish please click the following link to view the wishes, pick out a wish number, and bring that wish to the guidance office. If you are granting a perishable wish such as food or drinks, these can only be delivered during 1st period (7:25-8:20am). If you would like to donate money please bring checks or cash to the bookkeepers, and make checks payable to Sumner High School. Happy Granting!
Senior Orders (Cap/Gown, Announcements, Senior Ads, etc...)
Jostens is proud to be celebrating the moments that matter to you and your student. Jostens recently met with your student and passed out order packets. You can turn those into us on the order day of November 5 during the school lunches, mail to the address on the packet envelope or proceed to the online ordering store. The deadline to order is December 10!
If you would like and overview of that meeting or you were unable to attend the meeting, please take a moment and watch the video link.
